- Device Offering
UMC’s 14nm FinFET technology performance is competitive with the semiconductor industry’s leading standards, featuring 55% higher speed and twice the gate density over 28nm process technology. The leading-edge 14nm process also consumes approximately 50% less power than 28nm.
A wide range of design support resources are available to help customers streamline their 14nm design-in process at UMC, including validated Cadence and Synopsys design tools, foundry design kits (FDK) and command files that are available now. We are also developing IPs and a reference design flow to further strengthen our 14nm design support portfolio.
UMC's 14nm technology is engineered to satisfy a wide variety of applications that require the highest performance and power efficiency, such as:
- AI based CPU or GPU
- High end application processors
- Cellular baseband
- Cable modem/ WLAN/ WiFi
- High end consumer applications such as set-top-box for DTV, DTV SoC, RF transceiver in high frequency communication, mmWave (extreme high frequency) for 5G, and mmWave Radar/ADAS/infotainment in automotive applications
