October 09, 2006 by Jeff Shepard

Jazz Semiconductor Inc., an independent wafer foundry focused primarily on specialty CMOS process technologies, announced that it will host its Annual Technology Conference on Friday, November 3, 2006. The one-day conference will provide an overview of Jazz Semiconductor's technology roadmap, business highlights and strategic initiatives as well as offer tours of the company's specialty manufacturing facility. Jazz is holding its Annual Technology Conference at its Newport Beach headquarters, following the 4th International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference & Exhibit on November 1-2, also in Newport Beach.

Among Jazz Semiconductor's new process offerings to be highlighted at the conference are its 40V Bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD) processes targeted for power management ICs and high performance amplifiers and drivers for consumer applications. Jazz will also provide an update on its 0.13-micron SiGe BiCMOS process, SBL13, which supports a low cost bipolar module for higher levels of digital integration coupled with analog and RF features for low cost wireless products. In addition, Jazz will showcase its manufacturing capability for MEMs devices and other high performance RF and Analog features. Jazz executives will also discuss the importance of accurate, comprehensive modeling in Analog and RF and how the company is bridging the design and manufacturing gap by pairing modular processes with modular design infrastructure.

Recently, Jazz has announced the availability of new features and enhancements to its modeling and design kit infrastructure including its Process Control Monitor Tool (PCMT), its advanced modeling tool for analog and RF foundry customers. Jazz PCMT allows designers to close the loop between circuit simulation and actual product designs. Jazz also announced its highly developed inductor design and modeling platform. The Jazz Inductor Toolbox (JIT) provides designers with a state-of-the-art design tool for octagonal and square inductors.
