Mask Quality and Delivery
At UMC, providing the highest level of mask quality and shipping efficiency is our top-priority. Hence, all mask suppliers are carefully selected based on a solid qualification procedure. We build close partnerships with all suppliers and work with them to ensure incoming mask quality and on-time delivery. In addition, all masks at UMC are stored in a well-controlled environment to prevent any contamination that will impact mask quality. Besides storage environment control, UMC also performs regular mask inspections to monitor mask quality to extend lifetime.
With the goal of helping our customers to realize first silicon success, UMC develops a series of production-ready solutions based on the latest resolution enhancement techniques (RET). Progressive innovations in UMC and extensive experience in various products allow us to help our customers complete successful chip tape-out under tight schedules and constrained mask budgets.
IP Protection and Data Preparation
UMC is committed to protect every customer's intellectual property rights through a detailed security policy. Through a series of exact controls, UMC's mask data preparation (MDP) network environment has reached the goal of providing maximum protection. In addition, our continuous investments in MDP infrastructure can help our customers to introduce the most sophisticated chips and systems to market within a short time.
Tape-out Status Tracking
UMC provides customers with a highly integrated platform (My UMC) to trace their mask tape-out status. My UMC platform links real-time information directly through B2B from mask suppliers; therefore, our customers are able to track their own masks anytime and anywhere at their convenience.
