PRWeb: Thanks to the materialization of several large-scale projects, LFoundry plans to invest a total EUR 25 million in R&D and innovation projects over the next three years.
Its latest developments include LF110 PDK (Process Design Kit) for the 110nm Aluminum process with an optional 90nm image sensor module. The PDK was released in May 2012 and early stage MPW (multi project wafer) are running in the line.
LFoundry is an analog and mixed signal foundry with 200mm manufacturing located in Rousset, France and Landshut, Germany with a wafer capacity of about 20,000 wafers/month. The former reports claimed that its Germany fab is insolvent.
Update: EETimes says that the €25M investment is intended for the fab in France , while the Landshut, Germany facility has been shut down.
