Direct Interface with Jazz Headquarters Ideal for Aerospace and Defense Customers NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- May 27, 2009
– Jazz Semiconductor®, a Tower Group Company (NASDAQ: TSEM, TASE: TSEM), and the leader in Analog-Intensive Mixed-Signal (AIMS) foundry solutions, today announced its DIRECT Multiproject Wafer (MPW) shuttle program offering customers quick and low-cost prototyping with access to high performance processes. The program provides a vehicle to develop new designs in CMOS, SiGe and SOI and bring these to market quickly, without incurring the full cost of a complete mask set.
The DIRECT MPW program offered by Jazz is especially advantageous for Aerospace and Defense (A&D) customers requiring ITAR protection by handling projects directly at its U.S. headquarters without access by a third party. The company’s A&D support, operations and logistics team is specifically designed to support low volume production for critical Military Programs at its ISO 9001 US-based manufacturing facility.
Direct engagement with in-house R&D and process experts at Jazz headquarters provides faster and more effective design interfaces and support. Through the DIRECT MPW program, Jazz offers customers rapid question resolution for design related issues to streamline the tape-in/mask generation process as well as direct process integration feedback and recommendations to further speed time-to-revenue. Monthly MPW runs include both CMOS and SiGe with speeds of up to 200GHz as well as SOI on selected processes.
“Jazz’s DIRECT MPW program, in addition to supporting the greater commercial community, is an extremely valuable service for the complex Aerospace and Defense industry providing faster and more effective design interfaces and support to specifically meet their crucial needs,” said Mike Scott, Director of Sales and Marketing Jazz Aerospace and Defense Business Sector. “We look forward to continuing to respond to our customers’ needs as well as expanding the DIRECT MPW Program to provide improved value-added services to the A&D sector.”
