TORONTO -- December 07, 2012

Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and
coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace & defense, discrete
electronics, semiconductor, and photovoltaic (solar) industries, announced
today that TowerJazz, one of the world’s largest pure-play semiconductor
foundries, has selected the Eyelit Semiconductor Edition™ MES suite to be used
in the fab of its subsidiary TowerJazz Japan, Ltd.

The deployment of Eyelit's comprehensive solution will include the following
benefits:

  *Reduced risk and costs by using a technologically advanced architecture
  *Elimination of multiple custom systems by implementing Eyelit features
  *Improved responsiveness and increased overall equipment effectiveness
    without the expense of third-party systems
  *Improved quality controls for engineering change notices and special work
    instructions
  *Streamlined automation to reduce complexity, and the cost of integration
    and support
  *Improved access to information through the Eyelit Mobile Web Portal™

“Eyelit’s Semiconductor Edition offers a more comprehensive solution than the
alternative MES options we reviewed,” stated Rafi Rozencweig, Vice-President
of Information Technology for TowerJazz. “The quality control module’s
extensive functionality will replace systems for quality management processes,
engineering change notices, and special work instructions. With Eyelit
FactoryConnect™, we will be able to integrate faster and perform enhancements
with limited customization.

“Our team was impressed with the professionalism and expertise of the Eyelit
team during the rigorous selection process,” Rozencweig continued. “We’ve
enjoyed excellent support from Eyelit over the past 10 years at Tower’s fab in
Israel. With the proven success of the Eyelit Integration™ software, we saw
this as a good opportunity to take advantage of the full spectrum of Eyelit’s
capabilities.”
