|Micrel Installs Sub-Micron 0.35 Processing Capability in San Jose
San Jose, Calif. — Micrel, Inc. announced it has achieved a major
milestone towards implementing sub-micron 0.35 technology processing in its world class fab facility located in San
Jose California. With the purchase of specialized equipment, Micrel’s fab can now run more advanced sub-micron 0.35
CMOS processes. The new tool enables the fab to run sub-micron 0.35 technology in full production mode. This
milestone effectively takes the fab technology from 0.5 to sub-micron 0.35 capability.
“We are excited about
this new equipment, not just for its sub-micron 0.35 capability, but also because of the increased demand we are
seeing from customers for our sub-micron 0.5 production,” noted Guy Gandenberger, vice president of wafer fab and
foundry operations, Micrel. “Not only were we able to secure this sophisticated piece of equipment at a
significantly reduced cost, but we will also add much needed capacity at the sub-micron 0.5 level, to insure that we
continue to meet world class standards for customer service.”
Micrel’s San Jose California-based
wafer fabrication facility has been certified to ISO14001:1996, the International Environmental Management System
Standard. The Company continues to focus on continuously improving its quality, safety and environmental practices
and, to that end, was recently able to significantly reduce water and energy consumption, saving significant
operating funds while continuing to preserve the environment. To ensure compliance with the European directive on
the restriction of use of hazardous substances (ROHS) and other similar regulations, the vast majority of Micrel
products may now be ordered in lead-free versions.
