TowerJazz and active-semi® Announce the Ramp to Production of a Motor Driver IC on 200V SOI Technology
TowerJazz's 200V SOI platform provides superior performance such as significant die size reduction with deep trench isolation, enabling up to 50% area reduction compared to junction isolation in a standard foundry offering. It also provides very high voltage support exceeding the 80V common junction isolation capabilities, and high immunity to ESD/
TowerJazz's TS18SOI platform can be used for a broad range of analog and high voltage applications such as motor drivers, home and industrial appliances, battery operated power tools, battery management systems, electric vehicles (EVs), ultra-fast GaN drivers, industrial motor controllers, and many more. This platform is also well-suited to address the automotive high voltage requirements (~100V) for applications such as motor drivers, DC-DC converters, battery management and more.
"We chose TowerJazz's 200V SOI process due to their manufacturing quality and flexibility to define devices needed for our design. Also, by using their process, we could further achieve an optimized smaller footprint and higher efficiency with our PAC® solution for the target high voltage battery powered market segment," said
"The long term and successful collaboration with active-semi® enabled a very quick ramp to production of a new part based on our best-in-class 200V power SOI technology. This high performance and unique technology platform which offers a highly competitive feature set, is extending our offering in the emerging industrial, medical and automotive markets which are in need of very high operating voltages," said
