Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) said it has been selected by L-3 Cincinnati Electronics, a division of L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL), as a supply partner to manufacture its readout integrated circuits.
L-3 CE will design and manufacture its state-of-the-art ROICs for its cooled infrared detectors using Cypress´s proprietary process technology at the Cypress Foundry Solutions wafer fabrication facility in Bloomington, Minnesota. L-3 CE selected Cypress based on the potential for significant manufacturing yield enhancements for large-die ROIC devices.
The ROICs will be based on Cypress´s S8 mixed-signal 130-nanometer flash-based SONOS (Silicon Oxide Nitride Oxide Silicon) process technology. SONOS is compatible with standard CMOS technologies and offers numerous advantages, including high endurance and low power.
