CMP selects TowerJazz CMOS image sensor power management processes

March 18, 2011 – BUSINESS WIRE — TowerJazz advanced 0.18µm power management and CMOS image sensor (CIS) technology and sophisticated process design kits (PDKs) are now available for prototyping to companies, universities and research labs through the services provided by CMP.

CMP, an independent non-profit organization, provides more than 1000 organizations from 70 countries access to affordable commercial foundries by consolidating their designs onto multi-project wafers. CMP works with several foundry vendors supporting a range of technologies and has chosen TowerJazz for its excellence in process technology as well as its broad IP portfolio. CMP offers its customers experience with the entire design, layout, verification, and tapeout process, as well as the export guidance.

In power management, TowerJazz offers scalable bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD) platforms with state of the art Rdson values including non-volatile memory (NVM). TowerJazz also has a proprietary Y-Flash technology, offering small cell size, zero mask adder and flexibility to implement various memory sizes. TowerJazz provides internal pixel development for high-end CMOS image sensors. TowerJazz supports the customization of pixels per project needs and its performance (dark current, low noise and dynamic range) enables a rich offering for various digital imaging applications.

CMP is a broker in ICs and MEMS for prototyping and low volume production. Circuits are fabricated for Universities, Research Laboratories and Industrial Companies. Advanced industrial technologies are available in CMOS, BiCMOS, SiGe BiCMOS, High Voltage, FDSOI down to 20nm, pHEMT GaAs, and MEMS etc. CMP distributes and supports several CAD software tools for both Industrial Companies and Universities.
