The Strategic Cost and Price Model - 2019 is now available with eight new fabs, expanded logic and DRAM process coverage, updated data and many other enhancements.

The IC Knowledge - Strategic Cost and Price Model takes the top three companies in each of four segments and provides a detailed look at all of their current and past processes on 300mm and forward forecasts out to the next decade.

Specifically the model covers: DRAM - Samsung, Micron and SK Hynix, Foundry - TSMC, Global Foundries, Samsung, IDM Logic - Intel MPU and ST Micro, NAND - Samsung, Toshiba, and Intel-Micron and 2D and 3D NAND, 3D XPoint for Intel-Micron.

In each case we present a detailed introduction date, general process's details, process flows in order, pitch by layer and node, mask layers, multi patterning usage and total masks. Process blocks, pitch and multi patterning can be edited for each case.

For each target company and process every 300mm fab they have is predefined so that if you juts pick a fab the fab details and supported processes are pre defined (although you can override them) and detailed outputs of equipment and materials requirements are provided,

The new Strategic Cost and Price Model adds eight new fabs, 1a, 1b and 1c DRAM coverage, an updated 2-layer CFET process and estimated 3 and 4-layer CFET processes, extensive data updates and many other improvements.

Supported processes
The Model supports DRAM out to 12 nm, Foundry out beyond 3.5nm, NAND in 2D out to 15nm/16nm as well as 3D to 256 layers and 3D XPoint to 8 layers.

Supported wafer sizes
300mm and 450mm

Supported cost elements
Wafer cost and price. No packaging or test.
