TowerJazz Expands Support for its Fast Growing Base of Chinese Customers with Leading SiGe BiCMOS Technologies for Wireless and Wireline Communication Systems

TowerJazz to present its advanced offering at the 2017 SEMICON China conference

SHANGHAI, China, March 13, 2017 — TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced participation at SEMICON China to be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from March 14 – 16, 2017. TowerJazz’s presentation by Dr. Edward Preisler will address the role of SiGe technology in providing solutions for advanced wireless and wireline communication systems such as 4G and 5G handsets, IoT devices, automotive radar systems, high-speed data networks and data center communications. TowerJazz’s leading SiGe BiCMOS technology provides best-in-class solutions for the needs of its fast growing base of Chinese customers.

TowerJazz will discuss the challenge of wireless front-end module integration and small package requirements solved with its 0.18um SiGe power amplifier technology that builds all the elements of a wireless front-end module on a single chip. This leading technology combines a power amplifier with a high performance low-noise-amplifier, a switch, digital circuitry and power control, all on a single die.

The presentation will also include demonstrations of TowerJazz’s high-performance SiGe technology for very high-data rate wireless links at 60GHz (WiFi 802.11ad), breakthrough results for 5G wireless communications, as well as circuit blocks for next-generation 100GbE and 400GbE wireline data networks.

“TowerJazz has a long history and legacy in SiGe BiCMOS technology development and a proven record of manufacturing excellence,” said Lei Quin, TowerJazz China Country Manager. “We continue to provide great support in China as it consumes a huge percentage of the world’s ICs and internal China fabs can only cover a small percentage of the country’s need. We have been consistently growing our customer base in China and are committed to meeting the rising manufacturing needs in this region.

TowerJazz’s presentation on its SiGe BiCMOS process technologies will take place at SEMICON China in Session 3: “Compound Semiconductors in Communications” and will be held on March 16, 2017 from 11:10-11:35. For more information, please contact
