B5 Process

ON Semiconductor (formerly AMIS) 0.50 Micron

Process Family Description

This non-silicided CMOS process has 3 metal layers and 2 poly layers, and a high resistance layer. Stacked contacts are supported. The process is for 5 volt applications. MOSIS orders EPI wafers for this process. Non-EPI (bulk) is an additional cost option and not available for MEP submissions. For further information, see the ON Semiconductor Foundry Mixed-Signal Offerings web page.

B5N Process

PiP (poly2 over poly) capacitors (950 aF/µm²) and the HRP (High Resistance) option are available on multiproject runs.

B5F Process

The B5F process offers the above layers of C5N plus Thick_Gate, N_Minus_Implant (Npblk), and P_Minus_Implant (Ppblk).

Design Rules

This process supports the following design rules.
