TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, specializes in manufacturing analog integrated circuits for more than 300 customers worldwide in growing markets such as automotive, medical, industrial, consumer and aerospace and defense, among others.
Tower Semiconductor Ltd. (NASDAQ: TSEM, TASE: TSEM) and its fully owned U.S. subsidiaries Jazz Semiconductor, Inc. and TowerJazz Texas Inc., operate collectively under the brand name TowerJazz. TowerJazz also operates three fabrication facilities in Japan through TowerJazz Panasonic Semiconductor Co. (TPSCo), a company established with Panasonic Corporation in March 2014.
Deeply rooted in proven technologies, the company continues to drive innovation within silicon rather than by pure technological nodal shrinkage and specializes in customized analog solutions for differentiated products. TowerJazz offers a broad range of customizable process technologies, including SiGe BiCMOS and RF CMOS (SOI and bulk) for radio frequency and high performance analog (HPA) applications; CMOS image sensor (CIS); power management, including BCD and 700V, and its patented Y-Flash, the leading solution for non-volatile memory (NVM); CMOS; mixed-signal CMOS; and MEMS capabilities.
To complement its sophisticated technology offerings, TowerJazz provides a world-class design enablement platform that enables a quick and accurate design cycle. TowerJazz also provides transfer, optimization and development process services (TOPS™) to IDMs as well as fabless companies that need to expand capacity, or progress from an R&D line to a production line. For on-shore aerospace and defense customers in the U.S., TowerJazz offers a wide range of technologies for applications including Large Die ROICs, MEMS and millimeter wave devices, among others. In addition, TowerJazz provides “Trusted” foundry services in its Newport Beach, California facility through its subsidiary, Jazz Semiconductor Trusted Foundry (JSTF), as accredited by the U.S. Department of Defense.
TowerJazz is geographically and culturally diverse with broad and deep experience in manufacturing many different types of technologies. TowerJazz is a pure play foundry, so even though the company helps its customers with design and technical support to enable manufacturing of their products, TowerJazz does not compete with its customers. Instead, TowerJazz forms an integrated team with its customers to translate from product to device to process to recipe to tool such that the best manufacturing process can be utilized.
As the global specialty foundry leader in technology and manufacturing, TowerJazz pursues excellence in all aspects of its business by maintaining industry expertise and cultivating a collective culture of quality, innovation, and trust. Working with TowerJazz, customers are considered valued partners. From initial discussions outlining requirements to customizing and executing an optimal solution, TowerJazz experts work closely with customers every step of the way.
For global capacity assurance, TowerJazz operates seven manufacturing facilities in three geographic locations, providing its diversified customer base with over 2.3 million wafers per year: two fabs (150mm and 200mm) located in Migdal Haemek, Israel, one fab (200mm) located in Newport Beach, California, USA, one fab located in San Antonio, Texas, USA and three additional fabs (two 200mm and one 300mm) through TowerJazz Panasonic Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (TPSCo) located in the Hokuriku region of Japan.
TowerJazz employs approximately 4,500 employees worldwide.
As TowerJazz expands its capabilities, manufacturing capacity and global reach, the company continues to build on its market and technology leadership to maintain its worldwide leadership position.
