At TGS 2014, TowerJazz will communicate its plans for strategic growth,
technology leadership and capacity expansion as well as additional
opportunities provided to customers through its new enterprise, TowerJazz
Panasonic Semiconductor Company (TPSCo). TGS sessions will focus on how
TowerJazz’s broad specialty and advanced process offerings innovate and

collaboration with its customers, TowerJazz manufactures components to power,
connect, and enable smart solutions for networking, industrial automation,
smart energy, healthcare, automotive and consumer markets, among others.

TowerJazz offers advanced specialty technologies such as: RF, high performance
analog, integrated power management, CMOS image sensors (CIS), and
mixed-signal/CMOS as well as MEMS manufacturing capabilities. TowerJazz also
offers Transfer Optimization and development Process Services (TOPS) to
provide customer protected foundry capacity and next-generation
co-developments. In addition to its 150mm and 200mm fabs in Israel and its

“We constantly strive to meet our customers’ ever growing needs by enhancing
our broad technology offerings and improving our global operations, changing
the foundry landscape by creating a company that will serve and grow the
analog foundry space as no other single foundry can. Our specialty technology
expertise is well-aligned with current trends which assists our customers in
manufacturing innovative products. It is most motivational to see developments

into the mainstream market. It is exciting to be at the forefront of many of
the market trends, and we look forward to sharing our enthusiasm for our
technology solutions with our customers and partners throughout the industry
and around the globe,” said Russell Ellwanger, TowerJazz Chief Executive
