Integrated circuits gave rise to microprocessors, or logic chips
, with functions that can be programmed.
As the smartphone market slows, Samsung`s logic chip
division also plans to seek growth in new fields such as fifth-generation mobile network technology (5G) and automotive, Kang said.
Next-generation packaging, he said, involves package-on-package (including a bottom logic chip
and top memory chip), fanout WLP, flip-chip, BGA, LGA, and other configurations.
Chin added that TSMC is leading not only in logic chip
capacity but also in defect density (D0) competition.
An FPGA is a programmable logic device (PLD) - a kind of logic chip
that can be programmed and reprogra mmed by the end user.
He is credited with the development of the world's first single-chip, 16-bit microprocessor-based calculator; the first 10-Mbit Ethernet CMOS media access controller (MAC) and physical layer chip; the first system logic chip
set for the PC-XT and the PC-AT; the local bus concept and the first Windows Graphics accelerator chip for PCs.
As a result, the routing of signals from a logic chip
with a 50-micron pitch and memory connection points to universal substrate terminals can be simplified.
manufacturer has approved its Guardian products as the process of record gas treatment system for their silicon nitride diffusion furnaces.
IBM and Siemens, through its Infineon Technologies AG group, will convert the plant, based at Corbiell-Essonies near Paris, from a dynamic random access memory (DRAM) production plant to logic chip
IBM Corp says it has uniquely embedded cheap DRAM memory on to a single logic chip
without compromising the function of either.
It makes CPUs used in computers and graphic processing units, or GPUs -- programmable logic chips
that help render images, animations and video.
"The investment plan is expected to help the company to reach its goal of becoming the world leader in not only memory semiconductors, but also logic chips
by 2030," the company said in a statement.
