Phoenix, Arizona–To accelerate the development of advanced broadband semiconductors critical to high-speed communications, ON Semiconductor today unveiled its advanced technology development center. The addition of the center will enable the company to offer advanced processes that address 10 to 40Gbit applications (OC-192 to OC-768), while minimizing development time and costs.
ON Semiconductor plans to use the resulting advanced technologies and processes to introduce new families of high-performance ICs designed to enable the Internet to keep pace with ever-increasing demand. The center will also serve as the focal point for the company’s advanced broadband development teams and house their new laboratory facilities.
“The opening of the Broadband Technology Center is a continuation of our commitment to maintain and expand a leadership position in the broadband market,” said Frans van Wijk, vice president and general manager of the Broadband Business Group at ON Semiconductor. “We are anticipating our customers’ needs by developing technologies that enable the design of innovative broadband ICs that will help our customers bring their products to market faster.”
ON Semiconductor established the center as a cornerstone in its strategy to expand its portfolio of application specific standard product (ASSP) semiconductors targeted for physical media, clock management, and data-flow management applications.
