Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation provides integrated circuit (IC) foundry and technology services at 0.35-micron to 28-nanometer. The company has a 300mm wafer fabrication facility (fab) and a 200mm mega-fab in Shanghai, a 300mm mega-fab and a second majority owned 300mm fab under development for advance nodes in Beijing, a 200mm fab in Tianjin, and a 200mm fab in Shenzhen. In addition to wafer fabrication, the company’s service offerings include a portfolio consisting of IC design libraries, circuit design blocks, design support, mask-making, wafer probing and gold/solder bumping. The company has a majority owned factory for 300mm wafer bumping and testing services under development in Jiangyin. The company also works with its partners to provide IC assembly and testing services. The company has a global and diversified customer base that includes some of the world’s leading IDMs and fabless semiconductor companies. Products and Services Manufacturing of Wafers and Manufacturing Capacity The company manufactures silicon wafers based on proprietary designs provided by its customers or third party designers. The company’s factories manufacture various types of semiconductors, such as logic (including Baseband, Application Processor, SoC, MCU, Touch Controller IC, DSP and ASIC/ASSP); mixed-signal and RF (including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, RF, Fingerprint Sensor, Demodulator and Tuner IC); Power IC (including Power Management, LED Driver, Display Driver, and High Voltage IC); memory (including SRAM, EEPROM, NAND Flash, NOR Flash, eEEPROM and eFlash); CIS (including FSI and BSI CMOS Image Sensors); and others (including MEMS, TSV, IPD, 3DIC and Bumping). Integrated Solutions In addition to wafer fabrication, the company provides its customers with a range of complementary services, from circuit design support and mask-making to wafer level probing and testing. This range of services is supported by the company’s network of partners that assist in providing design, probing, final testing, packaging, assembly and distribution services. Design Support Services The company’s design support services provide its customers with access to the fundamental technology files and libraries that facilitate customers’ own integrated circuit design. The company also offers design reference flows and access to its design center alliance, as well as layout services to its customers. In addition, the company collaborates with industry leaders in electronic design automation, library and IP (intellectual property) services to create a worldwide network of expertise, resources and services that are available to its customers. Libraries and Intellectual Property As part of the fundamental building blocks for the company’s customers’ integrated circuit designs, it has a team of engineers who work with its research and development department to develop, license or acquire from third parties selected key libraries and intellectual property so that the company’s customers could design integrated circuits that utilize its new process technologies. These include standard cell, I/O, memory compilers, embedded memory, high- speed interface, peripheral controllers, and embedded processors, among others, using 0.35 micron down to 28 nanometer process technologies. They have been developed primarily through the company’s third party alliances, as well as by its internal research and development team, to facilitate easy design and fast integration into the overall design system. The company’s library partners include ARM, Synopsys, Inc.; VeriSilicon; and InnoPower. Mask-making Services The company produces masks for other domestic and overseas fabs as a separate revenue- generating service. Its mask-making facility, which is located in Shanghai, includes a 4,000 square meters clean room with up to class I specifications. Wafer Probing, Assembly and Testing Services The company has its own probing facility in Shanghai that provides test program development, probe card fabrication, wafer probing, failure analysis, and failure testing. The company also outsources these services to its partners. The company has established a network of partners that provide additional probing services, as well as assembly and testing services, to serve its customers. These partners, including Amkor Assembly & Test (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. and ST Assembly Test Services Ltd., have helped to enhance the range of services that the company is able to offer its customers. Customers The company’s customers include IDMs, fabless semiconductor companies and systems companies. Competition The company’s competitors are other pure-play foundries, such as TSMC, UMC, and Global Foundries. History Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation was founded in 2000 under the laws of the Cayman Islands. The company was incorporated in 2000.
