TowerJazz Ramps Mass Production of Touch Screen Controller Developed by N-Trig for Digital Pen

TowerJazz announced that it is ramping high volume production of a touch screen controller developed by N-trig, an Israeli company. Recently, this advanced digital pen technology was acquired by Microsoft for use with its Surface products. The touch screen controller, which enables special capabilities of sensing multi-fingers touch and a digital pen (stylus), will be produced using TowerJazz's advanced 0.18-micron power management process (TS18PM). N-trig's ICs were designed by N-trig with the support of TowerJazz's Netanya Design Center (NDC) in Israel and are being manufactured in its Migdal Haemek, Israel fabrication facility (Fab 2).

TowerJazz and Anatrix Develop RadHard RF ASIC

TowerJazz and Anatrix developed a Radiation Hardened (RadHard) by Design RF front end ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) utilizing TowerJazz's 0.18-micron SiGe BiCMOS (SBC18HA) process through its U.S. Aerospace & Defense business unit in its Newport Beach, CA facility. The new ASIC has produced RF phase detection with integrated controller functions. Anatrix's proprietary RadHard by Design methodology allows its customers to achieve program radiation tolerance specifications without expensive and time consuming overdesign. The Anatrix methodology creates the optimum trade for customers between total ionizing dose, single event effects tolerance and cost. Anatrix has an extensive silicon verified RadHard by design IP portfolio on TowerJazz's 180nm CMOS and SiGe processes in its Newport Beach, CA facility and is currently extending its development into TowerJazz's 130nm processes. TowerJazz's modular 0.18-micron SiGe BiCMOS platform incorporates high-speed, standard, and high breakdown SiGe bipolar transistors, or SiGe NPNs, for low noise, high switching speeds and better linearity than can be achieved with a typical 0.18-micron CMOS offering, for applications where those features are required. With capacity expansion and new technologies in areas such as high-speed SiGe, Readout Integrated Circuits (7ML and 8ML ROICs), imaging, and MEMS, TowerJazz continues to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to its A&D customers.
