NXP will ship this year as many as five SoCs made in Samsung’s 28nm fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI) process, including one that has been sampling for six months. Samsung is expected to announce its FD-SOI roadmap in May and is already working on RF and in-house embedded MRAM for it.

An NXP executive showed the first samples of the products at an event here, a key milestone in a long journey for FD-SOI. The next big step is finding an embedded non-volatile memory for the process, given embedded flash is expected to hit limits at 14nm.

A Globalfoundries executive declined to say when it expects to ship the first commercial chip in its 22nm FD-SOI or how many tapeouts it has completed in the process. The company announced its first FD-SOI tapeout last year and said it now has 70 customer engagements.

“Our FD-SOI business is small right now, but it will be mainstream,” said Ryan Lee, a vice president of foundry marketing for Samsung.

One chip designer at the event said his company has been interested in FD-SOI for a long time. It made a test chip at STMicroelectronics but chose to work on commercial designs with Samsung because Globalfoundries was not ready until Sanjay Jha became the foundry’s CEO, after the fabless company made its decision.

NXP described four 64-bit ARMv8 and one 32-bit ARMv7 embedded SoCs under its i.MX brand, three now in production in Samsung’s FD-SOI process. Over the next two years, the family will cover a performance range that scales by a factor of 25, five times more than its planar-based i.MX chips, each design optimized for different performance and power characteristics.

“I don’t think that would be possible without 28nm FD-SOI,” said Geoff Lees, general manager of NXP’s microcontroller group.

A high-end automotive SoC will run up to eight 1080-progressive displays and run without a fan. “It’s operating in conditions that would kill a cellphone,” with three orders of magnitude better reliability, Lees said.

An i.MX 7ULP announced in March includes independent application and real-time domains. It targets a wide range of markets from home automation to wearables.

Long term, Lees said FD-SOI promises better ADCs and lower power radios. For example, he expects single-antenna 802.11n Wi-Fi on the power budget of Zigbee and other 802.15.4 protocols and an ability to take “Bluetooth Low Energy to new record power levels, opening up new apps at new cost points.”

日前,业内传出NXP代理商们接到了NXP的涨价通知,表示将从2018年第一季度开始对MCU、汽车电子等产品上调价格,涨价幅度在5%~10%不等。从产业角度看,NXP作为行业领先的企业,若其真的已举起涨价旗帜,其同行业者或也将响应,难道2018年涨价还是主旋律? 近日,消息称NXP对旗下微控制器、数字化网络、智能天线解决方案、汽车微控制器、安全移动支付等进行了5%~10%幅度的价格上调,从涨价的产品线看,MCU、NFC等均为NXP的主要产品。 上个月初,台湾媒体报道称,目前8英寸硅晶圆产能交期已与12吋晶圆相当、甚至更长,由于2018年MCU、MOSFET芯片都已提前喊缺,整体MCU需求量亦明显拉高。 由于汽车电子及物联网大量导入MCU架构,但包括意法、德仪、瑞萨等IDM厂产能不足因应需求,导致交期大幅拉长至3个月以上,部份缺货严重的料号交期更长达半年。 2017年以来,全球不少MCU厂商产品交期都从4个月延长至6个月,日本MCU厂商更是拉长至9个月。 市场分析认为,MCU、NFC等IC供应紧张的主要原因有二,一方面硅晶圆产能满载、价格持续上涨,另一方面因无线充电、汽车电子及物联网等市场需求强劲。 硅晶圆方面,数天前国际电子商情报道文章《扛不住原材料上涨,国内晶圆代工传出涨价》中显示,因硅晶圆价格上涨,国内晶圆代工及台系晶圆代工厂纷纷寻求上调代工费。 目前市场对8英寸、12英寸硅晶圆产能均持悲观态度,业界认为8英寸硅晶圆产能供应紧张2018年仍无法舒缓,12英寸硅晶圆产能则将一直缺货至2021年,据悉硅晶圆厂环球晶圆11月底与客户签订了2020年后供货长约。 价格方面,硅晶圆价格一直处于逐季上涨,数据显示2017年硅晶圆价格上涨20%~30%,预估2018年第4季的价格将较2017年同期攀升20~30%。 在硅晶圆缺货涨价之余,无线充电、汽车电子及物联网等市场大量导入MCU,导致需求激增。台系MCU供应商指出,2017年终端市场虽没有太多的杀手级应用,但物联网、云端服务、人工智能、智能家庭、汽车电子等领域,不断看到一些新世代产品浮出台面来抢市,客户持续增加终端产品附加价值,多方面尝试新功能、新应用,希望激励终端产品销售量,而新增加的功能及应用,都需要适当的芯片解决方案来支持。 台媒报道称,受惠于物联网、穿戴式装置、智能语音装置及车用电子等新兴需求窜起,MCU客户不仅从4/8位元升级至16/32位元,整体MCU需求量亦明显拉高,使得盛群、凌通、新唐、伟诠电、松翰、迅杰等台系MCU供应商的营收规模、芯片平均单价及毛利率同步成长。 据悉,盛群无线充电专用MCU预计2017年出货量可超过百万颗,明年随着无线充电相关应用产品持续普及,盛群也预估,无线充电专用MCU在2018年出货量将呈现数倍之大幅成长。 从产业角度看,NXP作为行业领先的企业,若其真的已举起涨价旗帜,其同行业者或也将响应,难道2018年涨价还是主旋律?
