Description and Purpose

Motorola is pleased to announce a new fabrication site for the MC68HC000 products in the TSC6 wafer fab in Sendai, Japan.  The TSC6 mask set, J82M, will replace the G73K mask set formally manufactured in the MOS 10 fabrication site in Irvine, CA. and also the E72N mask set formally manufactured in the MOS8 fabrication site in Austin, TX.  Identical to the E72N and G73K, the J82N mask is a straight transfer of database, technology, and performance to TSC6.

TSC6 is the 6 inch wafer fabrication facility for Tohosku Semiconductor Company (TSC).  TSC6 has been producing Motorola microprocessors (8,16, and 23-bit) for several years and has demonstrated high yields and reliability.
