The goal of this webinar is to clarify industry specifications for automotive mass production, introduce designers to the automotive reliability and quality manufacturing needs from the foundry perspective, and discuss TowerJazz’s automotive offering.
Wafer manufacturing processes for automotive applications require high levels of process and reliability performance, together with development and implementation of defect-free in-line programs. In this webinar, we will highlight guidelines for physical and environmental reliability qualification success that are different from those of non-automotive products.
We will present several TowerJazz automotive technologies that meet these targets. We will also describe the TowerJazz Automotive Quality Policy and in-field implementation. This policy includes automatic outgoing inspection, zero defect methodology, the Maverick Alert System, and more. Finally, we will show several examples of product qualification results, accumulated throughout many years of manufacturing automotive devices.
Our aim is to clarify industry specifications for automotive mass production from the foundry perspective together with TowerJazz related performance, and to discuss our world-class quality system implemented in our manufacturing facilities.
Fabless engineers, “foundry interfaces,” and quality and reliability managers working on the design, fabrication, and manufacturing of devices for the automotive industry. Some manufacturing, device and reliability background is recommended.
Eitan N. Shauly received the B.Sc. degree in materials engineering from Ben-Gurion University, Beer-Sheva, Israel, in 1989, and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in materials engineering from the Technion—Institute of Technology, Haifa, in 1995 and 2001, respectively.
He has worked for Tower Semiconductor since 1989. During 1989–1994 he was a diffusion and ion implantation engineer. During 1994–1997 he was a device engineer, focusing on process integration and process modeling. Since 1998 he is doing integration, focusing on platform development, design rules and Design- For-manufacturing. He works closely with the TowerJazz Design Center, device engineers, PDK group, customers, and production lines, in TowerJazz sites worldwide.
Shauly is also a member of the Materials Science and Engineering department at the Technion – Institute of technology, Haifa, Israel.
Michael Axelrod received his Practical Engineer degree in 1986, and B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, in 1990. He then served as an Academic Officer for high-end Opto-Electronic systems, representing the IDF at its system supplier companies. During 1994-1997, Michael worked for TED, a Technion affiliate startup company, managing the its R&D department while supporting Product Marketing activities.
Since joining Tower Semiconductor in 1997, Michael served various customer-facing positions in the Customer Support, Marketing and Sales departments, at the company’s headquarters in Israel and at its sales branch in California, USA.
