on December 26, SMIC international integrated circuit manufacturing Co., Ltd. ("SMI international", NYSE Stock Code: SMI, Hong Kong Stock Exchange Stock Code: 981) and International Business Machines Corporation ("IBM", NYSE Stock Code: IBM) jointly announced, SMIC international and IBM have signed a 45 nm bulkcmos technology license agreement. SMIC international will provide global customers with high-end 12 inch core cleaning oil chip OEM services
according to the agreement, IBM will transfer 45nm low-power and high-speed bulkcmos technology to SMIC. This technology is not only because the control must be based on the detection of input information, but also can be used in the application of mobile communication products, such as the high-end integration of 3G, multimedia, image processing and chipset functions. High speed technology can support the production of images and other consumer electronic productsKevin Hudgins, IBM's vice president in charge of intellectual property licensing, said, "China is a rapidly growing strategic market, and SMIC is China's largest chip OEM."
the license agreement between SMIC and IBM is one of the strategies for SMIC to strengthen its leading position in China's chip generation industry, so as to better serve high-end customers all over the world.
