UMC is a Taiwanese semiconductor company founded in 1980 which produced many of the chips found in older Famiclones, initially direct clones of the original Nintendo chips and later NES-on-a-chip (NOAC). UMC took over manufacturing and distributing Gamate handheld consoles and games after Bit Corp. went out of business in 1992, and released its own 16-bit console (the Super A'can) through its subsidiary Funtech aka Dunhuang Technology in 1995.

Funtech was dissolved after the failure of the A'can, which lost the company US$6,000,000, and UMC has since left the game industry.
