United Microelectronics Corp UMC is a leading global semiconductor foundry that provides advanced technology and manufacturing for applications spanning every major sector of the IC industry. UMC's robust foundry solutions allow chip designers to leverage the company's leading-edge processes, which include 28nm poly-SiON and gate-last High-K/Metal Gate technology, mixed signal/RFCMOS, and a wide range of specialty technologies. Production is supported through 10 wafer manufacturing facilities that include two advanced 300mm fabs; Fab 12A in Taiwan and Singapore-based Fab 12i. Fab 12A consists of Phases 1-4 which are in production for customer products down to 28nm. Construction is underway for Phases 5&6, with future plans for Phases 7&8. The company employs over 13,000 people worldwide and has offices in Taiwan, Japan, China, Singapore, Europe, and the United States. The Industry Leader Founded in 1980 as Taiwan's first semiconductor company, UMC led the development of the commercial semiconductor industry in Taiwan. It was the first local company to offer foundry services, as well as the first semiconductor company to list on the Taiwan Stock Exchange (1985). UMC is responsible for many local industry innovations, including the introduction of the employee share bonus system, often credited as a primary factor in the development of a prominent electronics industry in Taiwan. UMC also enables customers to access complete supply chain information online through the MyUMC online service portal, an industry first when it was introduced in 1998. Back to Top Leading Foundry Solutions UMC is committed to the timely delivery of leading-edge solutions that serve the specific and unique requirements of our customers in the face of today's advanced applications. UMC collaborates closely with customers as well as partners throughout the entire supply chain, including equipment, EDA tool, and IP vendors to work synergistically towards each customer's SoC silicon success. We also possess the required knowledge in system design and architecture necessary to properly integrate customer designs with advanced process technologies and IP. The result is a greater chance of first pass silicon success for today's SoC designs. UMC's comprehensive foundry solutions start from a common logic-based platform, where designers can choose the process technology and transistor options that best fit their application. From there, technologies such as RFCMOS and embedded Flash can be used to further fine-tune the process for customers' individual needs. Furthermore, as IP has become a critical resource for today's SoCs, we have worked to provide basic design building blocks as well as more complex IP that are optimized for portability and cost, developed both internally and from third-party partners. With advanced technology, a broad IP portfolio, system knowledge, and advanced 300mm manufacturing, UMC offers comprehensive solutions that help customers deliver successful results in a timely fashion.
