    Fujitsu Succeeds in World's First Operation of 100W-Class Amplifiers Employing Carbon Nanotubes for Next-Generation Mobile Base Stations
    Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. today announced that, using carbon nanotubes as heat-dissipation material in amplifier transistors, Fujitsu has become the first to achieve the successful operation of high-frequency, high-power (100W-class) flip-chip amplifiers employing carbon nanotubes, for mobile base stations designed for fourth-generation (4G, IMT-Advanced) systems. Fujitsu achieved high frequency, high output, and high amplification in the amplifiers by developing "dual-side heat-dissipation" technology, in which heat is dissipated through both sides of the transistor chip, which is the source of the amplifier's heat output. Furthermore, Fujitsu's new technology enables the reduction of the transistor chip size to less than two-thirds (2/3) the size of existing transistor chips. Details of this new technology were presented at the IEEE International Symposium on Radio-Frequency Integration Technology 2009 (RFIT 2009) held from December 9 to 11 in Singapore, at which Fujitsu Laboratories was awarded the RFIT 2009 Best Paper for Oral Presentation award.

    Fujitsu Develops World's First Technology for Low-Temperature Full-Surface Direct Formation of Graphene Transistors on Large-Scale Substrates
    Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. today announced, as a world first, the development of a novel technology for forming graphene transistors directly on the entire surface of large-scale insulating substrates at low temperatures while employing chemical-vapor deposition (CVD) techniques which are in widespread use in semiconductor manufacturing. Compared to the temperatures of 800-1000°C at which graphene is formed with conventional methods, Fujitsu has succeeded in significantly lowering the graphene fabrication-temperature to 650 °C, thus allowing for graphene transistors to be formed directly on a variety of insulator substrates, including substrates that are sensitive to the higher temperatures. Graphene is a nano-scale carbon material (nano-carbon) with the potential to be the material used in next-generation low-voltage, low-power transistors, as graphene features high-electron and hole mobility characteristics.

    Fujitsu Announces Fast-Response DC/DC Converter IC for Consumer Electronics (161 KB)
    Fujitsu Microelectronics Limited today announced a new two-channel DC/DC converter IC with fast transient response, for use in digital consumer products, such as LCD TVs and digital video recorders. This new DC/DC converter IC, the MB39A145, utilizes a “bottom detection comparator method”, and includes new enhanced circuits which provide changes in voltage, for changes in current to realize a more stable and low ripple output voltage. This improved stability subsequently reduces the number of external components that are needed, such as condensers, thus reducing space. The IC also includes Pulse Frequency Modulation (PFM) that is highly efficient in low-current ranges, and allows the equipment to have low power consumption in stand-by mode. Samples of the new converter IC will be available from January 2010.

    Fujitsu Laboratories Develops Multi-Channel High-Speed Transceiver Circuit for High-Speed Blade Server Performance
    Fujitsu Laboratories Limited and Fujitsu Laboratories of America, Inc. today announced the development of a power-efficient and compact multiple-channel high-speed transceiver circuit, that enables high-speed transmission at 10 gigabits-per-second (10Gbps) when used in backplanes which are circuit boards that act as transmission conduits of blade servers, which are high-performance servers that combine several servers. Compared to conventional technology, this novel backplane transceiver circuit would require only one-fourth (1/4) the power consumption and just half the area, to act as transmission conduits to enable 4-channel 10Gbps transmission in backplanes. It is anticipated that the new transceiver circuits will be employed in backplanes to meet the increasing need for blade server systems featuring high-density packaging, high-speed transmissions, and lower power consumption.

    Fujitsu Microelectronics to Reorganize Manufacturing Facilities (102 KB)
    Fujitsu Microelectronics Limited, since its establishment as a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited in March 2008, has been implementing a medium-term business plan that includes raising production efficiency and optimizing costs in its LSI manufacturing divisions. However, with the rapid worsening of economic conditions worldwide, orders have decreased significantly since October 2008. The company has therefore deemed it necessary to reorganize and consolidate its LSI wafer manufacturing facilities.
