Micron Technology is preparing to receive about 200 billion yen in financial incentives from the Japanese government to help it produce next-generation memory chips in the country, according to information received by Lansheng Technology, the latest in Tokyo's efforts to boost domestic semiconductor production.

Micron will use the funds to install ASML Holding NV's advanced EUV chip-making equipment at its factory in Hiroshima to make DRAM chips. The funding is likely to be announced when Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida meets a delegation of chip executives including Micron Chief Executive Officer Sanjay Mehrotra on Thursday.

Micron has invested more than $13 billion in Japan since 2013, including a push last year to produce so-called one-beta DRAM chips. The latest funding will help Micron produce what it calls one-gamma production, a more advanced technology Micron plans to launch by the end of 2024. Suppliers that will benefit from Micron's investment include Tokyo Electron Ltd. and ASML in the Netherlands.

Micron reported a loss of more than $2 billion in its latest quarter as it sold memory below its production cost due to an industry oversupply of memory chips this year. Micron management responded with what they called a historic quickness to cut pay, layoffs and production, and called on peers to follow suit. The second half of 2023 should prove a bottom for the DRAM market, especially if other companies also cut production, the company said.

The only U.S. company still in the memory chip business at scale is Western Digital, which doesn't make its own products but relies on partner Kioxia to make flash memory at factories in Japan. Micron has used its position as the sole U.S. memory maker to push Washington to subsidize the return of U.S. domestic manufacturing. Its executives have been taking the lead in lobbying the government.

Unlike rivals Samsung and SK Hynix, Micron has not shifted any of its wafer fabrication work to mainland China. Outside of its home country, Micron has factories in Taiwan, Singapore and Japan that are holdovers from past acquisitions.

Recently, STMicroelectronics released a smart sensor processor programming tool chain and supporting software package, which is convenient for developers to write application code for STMicroelectronics' latest generation of smart MEMS IMU sensor modules ISM330IS and LSM6DSO16IS, using the smart sensor processor inside the module (ISPU) handles the computational work associated with motion detection, for example, running activity recognition and anomaly detection algorithms directly on the sensor. Algorithm calculations moved down to the edge of the network help reduce system power consumption, shorten response delays, reduce the workload of the local microcontroller, and set sensor behaviors according to specific practical applications.

When using the ISPU toolchain, developers can write smart sensor software in the familiar and widely used C programming language, choose to write code in the command line interface (CLI) or Eclipse-based development environment (such as STM32CubeIDE), or choose AlgoBuilder , Unicleo and other graphical user interfaces.

The X-CUBE-ISPU software package contains templates and sample projects, as well as ready-made software libraries, which help developers quickly understand how to use ISPU, write ISPU code, and can modify the software package to develop custom algorithms. The package also provides pre-built files that allow the user to load the X-CUBE-ISPU example directly to the sensor using a GUI without writing code. Additionally, there are many more examples, tutorials, and other development resources on STMicroelectronics' GitHub repository.

Using these resources can help reduce development time for applications such as personal electronics, including wearable devices for activity recognition and health monitoring, as well as industrial equipment such as asset tracers, equipment condition monitors, robotics, machine controllers, and more.

STMicroelectronics' ISM330IS and LSM6DSO16IS inertial modules include an always-on 3D accelerometer and 3D gyroscope, as well as an embedded ISPU processor. The power consumption of both modules is very low, the power consumption in low power mode is only 0.46mA, and the noise in high performance mode is 70μg/√Hz. The sensor data fusion function allows the module to collect data from four external sensors. The module also includes an embedded temperature sensor. Both products are housed in a compact land grid array (LGA) plastic package measuring 2.5mm x 3mm x 0.83mm.

SPM Instrument, a condition monitoring and process optimization innovator in Strängnäs, Sweden, developed a vibration level analysis product using the ISM330IS sensor and quickly customized the ISPU using the STMicroelectronics ISPU toolchain and the X-CUBE-ISPU development environment Behavior.

SPM's sensing solutions are ideal for remote monitoring of standard manufacturing equipment such as pumps and fans, as well as machinery and equipment placed in harsh or hazardous environments where access by maintenance personnel is difficult. The ISM330IS enables designers to meet tight power budgets while overcoming the lack of computing power of local microcontrollers.

【Lansheng Technology information】According to news from Intel on June 6, it implemented backside power supply technology on product-level test chips to meet the performance requirements of the next computing era.

According to reports, as Intel's backside power delivery solution, PowerVia will be launched on Intel's 20A process node in the first half of 2024. By moving power lines to the backside of the wafer, PowerVia solves the growing interconnect bottleneck in die scaling.

Ben Sell said, "Intel is actively advancing the 'four-year five-process node' plan, and is committed to integrating one trillion transistors in a single package by 2030. PowerVia is very important to these two goals. Both are important milestones. By adopting experimental production process nodes and their test chips, Intel reduces the risk of using backside power for advanced process nodes and brings backside power technology to the market."

It is reported that Intel separates the research and development of PowerVia technology and transistors to ensure that PowerVia can be properly used in the production of Intel 20A and Intel 18A process chips. Before integrating with the RibbonFET transistors that will also be introduced with Intel's 20A process node, PowerVia is tested on its internal test node to continuously debug and ensure that it functions well. Intel said that after adopting and testing PowerVia on the test chip, it has been confirmed that this technology can indeed significantly improve the efficiency of the chip, with a cell utilization rate of more than 90%, and help to achieve a large scale of transistors, so that chip design companies can Improve product performance and energy efficiency.

According to Korean media Aju News, Samsung plans to reduce at least 10% of the wafer production at the S3 plant in South Korea’s Hwaseong Park starting from the third quarter of 2023.

Samsung Semiconductor will start reducing production at the S3 plant in Hwaseong Park in the third quarter. The S3 factory is a 12-inch production line built and put into operation by Samsung Semiconductor in 2018. It currently mainly produces 10nm to 7nm products. It is also one of the main production plants of Samsung Semiconductor's EUV advanced process. Samsung has deployed multiple ASML NXE3400 EUV lithography machines for it. .

Aju News pointed out that this production cut is the first time in recent years that Samsung has artificially reduced the amount of wafers put into semiconductor factories.

During the downturn in the semiconductor industry, in order to invest counter-cyclically to squeeze competitors such as TSMC, Samsung was still seeking to expand production until the beginning of this year. It plans to increase wafer production capacity by at least 10% by the second half of 2023, but the decline in the semiconductor industry is far faster than Samsung. expected.

The amount of Samsung Semiconductor's products in stock is nearly 32 trillion won, a record high since records were kept. Therefore, after reducing memory production and raising prices, Samsung had to further reduce the amount of system LSI wafers to balance inventory.

Recently, Europe has established a gallium nitride scientific research project of up to 60 million euros, aiming to establish a complete supply capacity from power chips to modules.

In addition to Infineon, another 45 of its partners are involved. There is no doubt that this large-scale and high-investment GaN project highlights Infineon's determination to increase the layout for three and a half generations. To some extent, this will also be an important step for Europe to increase its chip manufacturing share and create a resilient supply chain.

In February last year, Infineon announced that it would spend more than 2 billion euros to build a third plant in Kulim, Malaysia, to produce SiC and GaN power semiconductors. At the same time, it said that in the future, the Si production line at the Villach plant in Austria will be transformed and converted to SiC and GaN production capacity.

Earlier, #Infineon announced that it had signed a final agreement with GaN Systems to acquire the latter for $830 million. The slightly aggressive expansion and the continuous advancement of the GaN technology roadmap all prove that Infineon is coveting this "cake".

In the ranking of the world's top ten power semiconductor manufacturers in 2021, Infineon ranked first with its absolute revenue advantage, followed by ON Semiconductor, STMicroelectronics, #Mitsubishi Electric, #Fuji Electric, Toshiba, Vishay, and #Anshi Semiconductors, Renesas Electronics, and Rohm. Almost every company here is accelerating the deployment of GaN.

From the perspective of the application of the third-generation half-power devices, consumer product power supplies, industrial and commercial power supplies, and new energy vehicles are the main markets. Especially as the penetration rate of new energy vehicles continues to increase, the requirements for energy saving and charging efficiency are getting higher and higher, and the potential of three and a half generations is becoming more and more prominent.

GaN power devices are mainly used in fields such as on-board chargers and DC-DC converters. Compared with Si, GaN can increase the charging speed by at least three times; compared with SiC, it also has advantages in high temperature resistance, high frequency resistance and high voltage resistance.

However, currently limited by the wafer preparation process and cost factors, the output of GaN is far less than that of SiC, and the application speed is slightly behind.

Hey guys, welcome to this blog. Today is another comparison article on electronic components, we will focus on NE5532 and its similar components: OPA2134, TL072 and NE5534. So off we go!

NE5532 vs OPA2134

The NE5532 is a Bipolar Input op-amp and the OPA2134 is a Fet Input op-amp.

Although many people claim NE5532 as an old component and try to find a new one to take its place, the NE5532 is still good enough for most applications. Plenty of new audio equipment still uses old op-amps such as the NE5532 and TL072 because anything better is overkill and not cost-effective.

If you can use a bipolar OP, the NE5532 is usually the better choice than a JFET OPA2132 / OPA2134. The OPA2134 is more a better replacement for the TL072 when you need a FET type. This may be the case with low-frequency filters.
