Currently, we provide shuttle services for processes from 0.18μm to FinFET on a regular basis. Product ranges include logic, mixed-signal/RF CMOS, EEPROM/Flash, CIS, BCD, ect. Shuttle service for 55nm logic is available 6 times per year and 40nm, 28nm service is available 4 times per year; MPW service for other technologies is available on up to 6 shuttles per month. SMIC’s MPW shuttle service provides rapid turnaround time and greater flexibility for our customers.

To enable process and product design checks and verification so as to avoid delays, SMIC employs standard monitors (SRAM and EEPROM) in our MPW service.
