500 nm lithography process

The 500 nanometer (500 nm) lithography process is a full node semiconductor manufacturing process following the 600 nm process. Commercial integrated circuit manufacturing using 500 nm process began in 1992. 500 nm and was phased out and later replaced by 350 nm in 1995.
