June 25 (Bloomberg) -- Tower Semiconductor Ltd., a maker of customized chips, advanced the most in almost three weeks after the company said it developed radiation-hard integrated circuits with Italy’s RedCat Devices.
The shares rose 2.8 percent, poised for the biggest gain since June 6, to 2.91 shekels, at 12:25 p.m. in Tel Aviv.
For Tower, the technology opens new markets which require components that withstand high doses of radiation, including medical devices, it said in a statement today.
