Stocks in this article: ONNN TSEM

MIGDAL HAEMEK, Israel, January 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --



TowerJazz (Nasdaq: TSEM), the global specialty foundry leader today announced a collaboration with ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), an innovator in energy efficient electronics to deliver an advanced programmable PMIC and high voltage level shifter with VCom targeting the high-end display panel market.

     (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120509/531192 ) This unique part is capable of driving very large loads with different voltage ranges and features a programmable power sequence that allows the product to be applied to various applications. To accommodate display panel market requirements, the part was designed to drive both positive and negative voltages (42V differential) to support essential high voltage product specifications. It is also applicable for the various panel applications in customer markets such as monitors and televisions, both small and large displays.

The collaboration leverages TowerJazz's latest TS35 power management platform for design and manufacturing to create a market leading product which is ramping to volume production. The device will be used for applications such as different sizes of LCD and AMOLED panels. According to a global TV shipment report by NPD DisplaySearch, the overall TV market in 2012 was forecast at 245 million units and several key high value segments of the TV business such as large screen sizes and LED-backlit LCD TVs are expected to continue to grow.

TowerJazz's collaborative efforts created the most cost-effective advanced product making use of the unique features in its TS35PM platform. This process offers a low mask count with the ability to generate one boost up and two step down voltage and two high voltage reference (in this case, negative voltages as well as positive voltages to meet market required performance), and fully scalable HV transistors for area optimization.  Along with these features, TowerJazz utilized its world class process design kit (PDK) and design services. TowerJazz's sophisticated PDK which includes scalable devices enabled the team to quickly design and simulate the product ensuring it met the required performance and target die cost. In addition, the high voltage span requirement is designed with a minimum mask count, further reducing the product's cost.
