UMC opens nano lab in Taiwan
United Microelectronics Corp. (UMC) has opened a new nanotechnology lab in southern Taiwan aimed at developing chip production technologies 45-nanometers in size and smaller.
The NT$1 billion (US$30 million) lab will eventually employ over 1,000 research engineers, important for southern Taiwan because of the loss of manufacturing jobs caused by factories moving to lower-cost China.
The research center is meant to help speed up the development of chip mass production technologies, ensuring leading edge chips make it to users as fast as possible. It will focus on 45nm and smaller production technologies.
