Ich erwarte einen schwächeren Dollar in den nächsten Monaten, das wird sich eindeutig negativ über die Zukunftsaussichten dieser Firma bewirken, egal ob zur Zeit gute Fakten und Zahlen herrschen? Warum ausgereichnet in semiconductors und dazu noch Speicherkarten?

Vermögen strukturieren und sich möglichst für die unplanbaren Marktereignissen vorbereiten.

Cost-efficient smartcard solution enables card manufacturers to reduce lead

times, simplify the supply chain and eliminate ROM mask costs

GENEVA, Switzerland, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- STMicroelectronics

(NYSE: STM) today announced a new secure microcontroller (MCU) based on

embedded Flash memory, which is the first in the world to be produced using

90nm (90 nanometer) process technology. The ST21F384 - the first secure micro

within ST's established ST21 smartcard platform, optimized for 2.5G and 3G

mobile communications - uses Flash memory in place of mask ROM for its program

memory, to provide increased flexibility and shorter lead times for

manufacturers, coupled with increased cost-efficiency from its 90nm production.

The new ST21F family will enable card manufacturers to react quickly and

cost-effectively to the fast changing needs of the mobile market, customizing

applications late in the production process, at the card personalization stage,

and addressing the requirements of multiple mobile network operators (MNOs)

with a single product. Supply chain risk and complexity can be reduced, as the

silicon is not linked to a specific operator profile.

The ST21F384 is based on an enhanced 8/16-bit CPU core with 16-Mbyte linear

addressing range, running typically at 21MHz. It embeds 7 Kbytes of user RAM,

plus 384 Kbytes of Flash memory, organized as 128-byte pages, with an erase

capability similar to that of the EEPROM used in earlier devices in the secure

family. Current consumption complies with 2G and 3G specifications to meet the

requirements of (U)SIM applications. The microcontroller includes a hardware

DES (Data Encryption Standard) accelerator and a user-accessible CRC (Cyclic

Redundancy Code) calculation block.

Card manufacturers using the Flash-based secure MCU will be able to reduce

lead times throughout the production process, with less time required to

validate the operating system (OS) on the card and to provide samples to

operators. A reduced time-to-volume production will also be achieved due to the

ability to stock unprogrammed devices. The cycle time to implement OS feature

updates and new MNO requirements will also be dramatically shorter.

With application code stored in Flash memory, card manufacturers will no

longer pay ROM mask costs; in addition, the code itself can be smaller, as it

is only necessary to implement the features required for the final customer,

rather than creating a general solution. ST's on-chip Flash loader provides

cost-efficient operating system loading.

"The move to 90nm technology for this new ST21 platform device is the

breakthrough that adds real cost efficiency to the flexibility and other

benefits of the Flash-based smartcard," said Marie-France Florentin, ST's

Smartcard ICs Business director. "With ST's world-class manufacturing

capability, based on more than 20 years as a leader in secure MCUs, card

manufacturers for the mobile industry will be able to reduce their costs while

also minimizing time to market."

Samples of the ST21F384 are available now, with volume production starting in

December 2007. ST has the unique ability to offer smartcard ICs as sawn wafers

or in advanced micro-modules combining integration and security. The ST21F384

is available as sawn or unsawn wafers, and in 6-contact (D17) and 8- contact

(D95) RoHS-compliant modules, with contact assignment compatible with ISO

7816-2. In wafer form it is priced at $0.45 in quantities of 100,000 units.

GENEVA, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) today

announced a tiny, highly-integrated chip - produced using the company's

world-leading IPAD(TM) (Integrated Passive and Active Devices) technology -

which provides five essential functions required by memory card interfaces in

mobile phones, GPS navigation devices, digital cameras and a broad range of

other consumer and industrial products that use removable Secure Digital (SD)

protocol cards. The new flip-chip EMIF06-SD02F3 memory-card transceiver

integrates signal conditioning, bidirectional level shifting, ESD

(electrostatic discharge) protection, EMI (electromagnetic interference)

filtering, and a 2.9V voltage regulator.

Integration of these circuits into a single monolithic chip increases system

reliability and saves more than 75% of the board area required by a typical

discrete solution. The EMIF06-SD02F3 requires less than 7 square millimeters of

board space, compared to approximately 30 square millimeters to provide the

same functions with discrete components, also simplifying the design and layout

of the application.

The chip is compliant with standard and high-speed SD standards, and with

MiniSD, MMC and uSD/TransFlash. It provides a high level of ESD protection to

exposed external memory card slots, efficient EMI filtering to protect data

lines against RF interference, and pull-up and pull-down resistors to prevent

floating data lines. ESD protection on the card-side pins meets the stringent

IEC61000-4-2 Level 4 standard, 15kV air discharge. The 800MHz to 3GHz EMI

filter achieves over 20dB attenuation at 1GHz.

In addition, six high-speed bidirectional level shifters, designed for 50MHz

operation and with 3ns typical propagation delay, enable the interfacing of

2.9V memory cards with 1.8V host processors. A maximum channel-to-channel skew

of 1.5ns ensures data transmission integrity, and the drivers are optimized for

low-power applications with quiescent off-current of 1-microamp.

Power for the memory card is provided through an on-chip 2.9V low drop-out

(LDO) CMOS voltage regulator, with 200mA current capability and an input

voltage range of 3.1V to 5V. The drop-out voltage is 100mV maximum with a 200mA

load. A switch-off control pin, with fast 30us turn-on time, helps minimize a

product's power consumption and extend battery life, and the regulator includes

thermal shut-down, under-voltage lock-out and short-circuit protection.

The EMIF06-SD02F3 is available in a lead-free, 24-bump, 400-micron pitch

flip-chip, and is currently in volume production. It is priced at $1.10 for

quantities up to 1 million units, and $0.95 in quantities of 1 to 5 million

units.

diese Aktie hat sich vom Tiefstand 11.10 wieder gut erholt. Ich denke, man sollte diese in die Watch-Liste aufnehmen.
