As a direct result of successful silicon tests, Bizen®, the new transistor technology that is challenging 50 years of MOS in both digital and power, is set to benefit from investment in new process equipment to expedite its development. Already at one wafer run per month with lead time falling as predicted, the initial analysis is very positive for all markets. First products are expected to be announced by the end of this year, with the sought-after PDK released first through early adopters who initially contracted SFN.
