In the South of China was put into operation factory UMC, designed for 300-millimeter plates
A major manufacturer of semiconductor products United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC) held an official opening ceremony of the factory, designed for a 300 mm wafer. Factory in Xiamen city, located near Taiwan, United belongs to Semi — a joint venture involving the city, UMC and Fujian Electronics & Information Group.
The production was built in the shortest time. Serial production began just 20 months after the start of construction in March 2015. As stated, the yield rate of products in pilot batches of chips for communications equipment, which are produced on 40-nanometer technology exceeds 99%. The productivity of the plant, designed to produce products according to the norms of 55 and 40 nm, is 50 000 wafers per month.
