TowerJazz Begins Mass Production of a new Integrated SiGe-Based "Front-End Module on a Chip" RF Platform Tailored to Meet the Challenges of the Internet of Things
Enables power amplifiers, low noise amplifiers and switches on a single chip
TowerJazz to participate at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in
The TowerJazz process enables integration of power amplifiers (PAs), switches, and low noise amplifiers as well as CMOS digital and power control on a single die. TowerJazz is delivering this product today for smartphones, tablets and wearables, and this technology also meets the more universal requirements of IoT applications by providing cost, power, performance, and form factor benefits vs. competing solutions.
As an example, TowerJazz has partnered with industry leader,
TowerJazz's new RF technology includes a 0.18um SiGe PA device with best in class silicon-based performance, a low Ron-Coff switch device, a SiGe low noise amplifier device, 5V CMOS for power control, 0.18um CMOS for integrating MIPI or other digital content as well as thick Cu metal layers for low-loss inductors and matching components. By offering all active components typically required for a wireless FEM, this technology enables a new family of products that can integrate multiple communication standards (WiFi, Bluetooth, 802.15.4 or NFC) that form the backbone of the IoT fabric today onto the same chip.
"This new technology complements our existing suite of SiGe PA and RF SOI switch technology offerings and provides customers new architectural options by enabling the combination of these elements on a single die while offering best in class silicon-based PA performance," said
TowerJazz will exhibit and demonstrate its advanced process technologies for specialty IC manufacturing in booth #1532 at IMS2016, the premier conference in the RF and microwave industry.
