    The Fujitsu 56GSa/s Analog-to-Digital Converter Enables 100GbE Transport
    A 100Gbps coherent receiver needs four 56GSa/s Analog-to-Digital Converters (ADCs) and a tera-OPS DSP that dissipates only tens of watts. This paper discusses the forces pushing towards a single-chip CMOS solution. The paper also introduces the Fujitsu ultra-fast CMOS ADC, which provides the enabling technology for 100Gbps Ethernet and OTU-4 transport systems using coherent receivers.
    The Fujitsu ASIC Platform: Combining Engineering Expertise with Best-in-Class Tools and Process Technology to Deliver Cost-Efficient Custom Silicon
    Advanced ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) development today requires complex and expensive design tools, leading-edge process technologies, and experienced engineering teams. Some large companies can commit the resources needed to acquire the expertise, support a sizable design team, and invest in the complete tool chain and development flow, all the way from circuit design to Graphic Data Systems (GDS) and beyond. This option, known as Customer Owned Tooling (COT), is a good choice for companies that can amortize costs over many products that are manufactured in high volumes for broad markets.

This article presents various high speed interface technologies that are beginning to be adopted in order to replace it.
    SoC Design Environment RDF V3.0 that Supports Low-power Designs
    Recently, the demand for low power consumption LSIs has been increasing constantly. In concurrence with process miniaturization, the leak current emitted while the transistor is OFF has been increasing and has now reached a level where it can no longer be ignored in products in which battery lifetime is important, such as mobile products. In this context, Fujitsu has released RDF v3.0, which includes a function to facilitate low-power design in our conventional LSI Design Flow RDF. This article introduces the low-power technology supported by RDF v3.0.

    The PSP Model in the RF CMOS Design Kit
    While the Penn State Philips (PSP) transistor model is rightly hailed as an excellent alternative to traditional BSIM models for RFIC design, RF designers need to be aware of how PSP models relate to actual device behavior. PSP models do require some judgment on the part of model developers. Equally important is an understanding of the way these models are used in an RF process design kit (PDK).
    Motivation for RF Integration
    While CMOS technology has made great strides in its ability to fabricate radio frequency (RF) circuitry, many RF chip designers have yet to take advantage of this capability. After long relying on more expensive technologies such as silicon germanium (SiGe) and gallium arsenide (GaAs), RF designers who transition to the latest RF CMOS processes gain the enormous advantages of full system-on-a-chip (SoC) integration.
    High-Performance / Low-Power 65nm CMOS Technology CS200 / CS200A
    This paper describes Fujitsu's CS200/CS200A series 65nm CMOS technology with a focus on the technology's improved performance and low power consumption. These advantages result from the technology's ability to achieve more than twice the density of transistor packing compared to 90nm technology as well as Fujitsu's advanced copper and ultra-low-k material (ULK) technology. The ULK material serves as an inter-level dielectric that reduces parasitic interconnect capacitance compared to previous technologies and thus significantly improves speed and power characteristics. The paper also describes Fujitsu's wide range of packaging choices and rich IP portfolio for use with the CS200/CS200A technology.

    IC Package
    Packaging solutions enable customers to reduce size and space requirements. The packages such as CSP (Chip Size Package or Chip Scale Package) and BGA (Ball Grid Array) support high-density wiring technology and are widely used in the market. Miniaturization has forced the use of new approaches in die packaging in order to achieve the
    smallest possible solutions. Fujitsu has launched the mass-production of SON packages -- the world's smallest level. Fujitsu has a mass-production lineup of super compact packages such as FBGA (Fine Pitch BGA) and WL-CSP (Wafer Level CSP) and beyond. The high pin count packages, PBGA( Plastic BGA) and TEBGA (Thermal Enhanced BGA) have been mass-produced in order to fulfill the size and weight limitations, of, for example, portable equipment.
