Tower Semiconductor was founded in 1993, with the acquisition of National Semiconductor’s 150mm wafer fabrication facility in Migdal Haemek, Israel. Tower became a public company in 1994. In 2001, Fab 2, a 200mm facility, was constructed alongside Fab 1. In 2008, Tower acquired Jazz Semiconductor’s 200mm facility (Fab 3)which increased global capacity, offered a more comprehensive technology portfolio, a larger customer base, and a stronger financial base. In 2014, TowerJazz completed a joint venture with Panasonic Corporation enabling TowerJazz to offer its customers state of the art 300mm technology including best of class 65nm CMOS image sensor dark current and quantum efficiency performance and additional 45nm digital technology, adding available capacity of approximately 800,000 wafers per year (8 inch equivalent) in three manufacturing facilities in Japan.
In 2016, in order to support its strong customer demand and to enable additional manufacturing flexibility, TowerJazz acquired Maxim Integrated’s 8-inch wafer fabrication facility in San Antonio, Texas, United States, cost-effectively increasing production by approximately 28,000 wafers per month.
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. more information
