STMicroelectronics (Crolles 2) SAS (STMFR) is also, similarly to beneficiary STMUK, a wholly owned subsidiary of STMicroelectronics N.V. The Crolles centre is the major hub for the development of mainstream CMOS Technology Platforms for the STMicroelectronics group, currently focused on the 130nm, 90nm, 65nm and 55nm generations. The Crolles facility is organised as an integrated facility with R&D, pilot production and volume manufacturing all carried out using 200mm and 300mm wafers with all activities closely coupled to ensure optimum overall efficiency. Digital core processes are enhanced with various options to address the System-on-Chip challenge, including analog, RF, embedded DRAM, high density SRAM, BICMOS processes for analogue and high frequency applications, non-volatile memory and power options for energy management applications as well as the CMOS imaging processes for the group’s imaging division products. Semiconductor process development experts in Crolles work closely with STMUK to develop the next CMOS image sensor generations and associated advanced technologies such as TSV and BSI. Crolles is also a major center for the development of leading-edge design automation tools and methodologies, cell libraries, IP reuse and hardware/software co-design.
