TowerJazz Presents its Advanced Power Management Technology at the Convention of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers in Israel on December 4, 2014
Two IEEE technical papers will be presented on new additions to TowerJazz’s
 Integrated power platform

MIGDAL HA’EMEK and EILAT, Israel, December 3, 2014 — TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced participation at the 2014 IEEE 28th Convention of Electrical and Electronics Engineers in Eilat, Israel on December 3-5, 2014. TowerJazz is presenting two papers in a special session on power management integrated circuits (PMICs) on December 4.  The presentations will highlight the growing importance and interest in PMICs. The global PMICs market is projected to exceed USD $26 billion by 2018 growing at a healthy CAGR of 7.4%. TowerJazz will focus on its new integrated Schottky Diode solution for its TS18PM process and its 700V platform with record logic density allowing the highest level of integration ever available. Participants of this conference are collaborators from academia and the semiconductor industry including Technion Israel institute of Technology and Ben Gurion University, among others.

The technical papers to be presented by TowerJazz are “700V integrated Power Management Platform with Record Density Logic” by Allon Parag, Manager of the 700V IC Platform Development Group and “Integrated High-Voltage (HV) Schottky Diode for Power Management ICs” by Dr. David Mistele, Senior Device Engineer in the Advanced Power Management IC Platforms Group.  TowerJazz offers and develops integrated power management platforms from 5V to 900V operation.

“The high performance integrated Schottky diode, used as a bootstrap and freewheeling component, is a premium addition to our integrated power management offering. The new 700V platform TS18UHV allows unprecedented integration capability (125 Kg/mm^2 with flash memory and RFIC capabilities) that can support advanced compact lighting solutions (‘lighting system in bulb’),” said Dani Ashkenazi, Vice President of Sales for APAC and Israel.

The 2014 IEEE 28th Convention of Electrical and Electronics Engineers will be held on December 3-5, 2014 at the Queen of Sheba, Eilat, Israel. The presentations are IEEE technical papers which will be available through ieeexplore worldwide.
