SHANGHAI, China, December 10, 2014 — TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced that China Country Manager, Lei Qin, will present “TowerJazz, the fastest growing foundry in Asia Pacific” at IC CAD 2014 on December 11-12, in Hong Kong Science Parks. TowerJazz will also exhibit at booth 1F 33-34 to showcase its foundry technologies and global footprint. TowerJazz’s presence at this important semiconductor industry conference further demonstrates its dedication to meeting the needs of Mainland China and Hong Kong customers.
According to a report by China Daily, it is estimated that China semiconductor consumption will increase to $177 billion in 2015 from $128 billion in 2010 and supply from Chinese semiconductor companies will grow from 4.5% of the total semiconductor consumption in China in 2010 to 9.6% in 2015.
TowerJazz’s presentation at IC CAD will focus on the availability of its advanced specialty technologies
as well as its expanded manufacturing capabilities with three fabs in Japan through its enterprise with
TowerJazz Panasonic Semiconductor Co. (TPSCo). TowerJazz’s process offerings include front-end
module (FEM) development, highly integrated 700V technology to meet the green standards for BLDC motor drivers and industrial LED lighting, and its 0.18um BCD with scalable LDMOS for Energy
Harvesting, DC-DC converters and LED backlighting, in addition to its high definition FSI for 800M and above pixel CMOS image sensors.
“We have been growing our technical support capabilities in China over the past few years to serve the large market in the Asia Pacific region. In addition, we have made available extensive capacity by
strategically partnering with Panasonic Corporation to offer manufacturing in three fabs in Japan,” said Dani Ashkenazi, Vice President of Sales for APAC and Israel. “We are excited to again participate at IC CAD to further showcase our dedication to serving the China market as well as the entire APAC region. We look forward to meeting with our customers and potential customers and partners to explore new business opportunities.”
