TowerJazz to Host Technical Webinar on Technologies Enabling Integrated on Chip Power Solutions

MIGDAL HAEMEK, Israel, June 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced it will host a webinar on its advanced on chip power solutions enabling technologies on July 15, 2015. The webinar targets fabless engineers, foundry interfaces, and reliability managers working on the design, fabrication, and manufacturing of power management devices.

Integrated power management silicon platforms allow the footprint reduction of power supplies. However, in most cases, the integration is not complete; traditionally, discrete board components still stay off chip. In this webinar, TowerJazz will describe new features that enable higher integration levels for on chip power solutions from the platform aspect as well as from the analog power designer's point of view.

TowerJazz will also show how its scalable voltage concept, together with different process flavors and low Rdson transistors, enable higher performance at a smaller die size resulting in significant cost reduction. In addition, a dialog between a device engineer and a designer will be held to demonstrate the close relationship of TowerJazz's technical team with its customers, leading to tailored and innovated solutions.

The webinar will be held for 40 minutes including a 10-minute Q&A session and will highlight the merits of the TowerJazz 0.18um power management platform as a live "discussion" between the platform developer and platform user while focusing on the way the design service functions. Speakers will be Mr. Sharon Levin, TowerJazz Director for BCD Processes and Senior Principal Engineer and Mr. Danny Pollak, TowerJazz Analog Design Team Leader.

The Technologies Enabling Integrated on Chip Power Solutions webinar will be held on July 15, 2015 at the following times:

ISR Clock – 10:00 | UK – 08:00 | Shanghai – 15:00 | Tokyo – 16:00

ISR Clock – 20:00 | UK – 18:00 | San Francisco – 10:00 | NY – 13:00

Following the live event, an archived version of the webinar will be available on the TowerJazz website.

TowerJazz's industry leading Bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD) process is used in complex power management chips including driver ICs, battery and portable power management, power control for PCs, Class-D audio amplifiers, and other consumer, communications and computing applications. Its customizable LDMOS (20V to 80V) process provides design optimization and the lowest die size at any given breakdown voltage. This platform offers maximum flexibility, enabling TowerJazz customers to create cost-effective products at any desired level of integration and achieve first-pass success for faster time-to-market. The integration of Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) provides significant differentiation and cost effectiveness for enhanced power management solutions.

In addition, to address the rapidly emerging, energy saving LED lighting market, TowerJazz has developed a groundbreaking 700V power platform that is unrivaled by other foundries. For more information please visit:
