NISHIWAKI, Japan -- March 7, 2013

TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced its CEO,
Russell Ellwanger will provide the opening keynote at the Global Semiconductor
Forum (GSF) 2013 on March 14 at the Pudong Shangri La Hotel in Shanghai,
China. Mr. Ellwanger will discuss industry megatrends served through analog
technology and how TowerJazz’s advanced specialty solutions meet the specific
requirements of these growing trends. The opening keynote on March 14, 2013
will take place at 08:00 – 08:35.

In addition, during March 12-14, 2013 at the Electronic Design Innovation
Conference (EDICon) in Beijing, China, TowerJazz’s Director of Design
Enablement & CAD, Ofer Tamir will lead an interactive workshop to provide a
hands-on experience showcasing TowerJazz’s industry leading design support
services and design enablement tools/capabilities. The workshop will feature
Mentor®’s Calibre® PERC™ capability in TowerJazz design kits, TowerJazz’s
advanced RF models and advanced RF technology.

The Calibre PERC platform enables TowerJazz customers to perform circuit
reliability verification for their latest 0.18 micron products going beyond
traditional DRC and ERC tools so designers can run highly complex checks that
are customized to specific design requirements as they relate to our foundry
manufacturing processes.

“We are placing a strong emphasis on business in China as it consumes almost
50% of the world’s ICs and internal China fabs can only cover 10% of the need.
As will be seen by both Russell’s keynote at GSF and Ofer’s workshop at
EDICon, our advanced specialty technologies and strong design tools will help
address the needs of China semiconductor companies and design houses to
increase their RF design capabilities, thereby maximizing their IC
performance. Our increased presence in China is a further testament to
TowerJazz’s commitment to meet the growing demands of the APAC region,” said
Todd Mahlen, Vice President of APAC Sales and Power Business Development.
