TowerJazz, a specialty foundry, and Vishay Intertechnology,a low-voltage power MOSFETs producer, report the expansion of their business relationship to include planar MOSFETs and Super Junction FET Power MOSFETs.
The companies expect that production of these products under the terms of the expanded relationship will add tens of millions of dollars in additional yearly revenue.
Vishay siliconix says it chose to expand its relationship with TowerJazz because of its excellent technical capabilities, especially its production achievements with its Trench technologies. For this reason, Vishay Siliconix will reportedly continue to be one of TowerJazz’s top five customers. The new devices will reportedly offer lower conduction losses, and save energy in power factor correction (PFC) and pulsewidth modulation (PWM) in electronics such as LCD TVs, PCs, servers, switch mode power supplies, and telecom systems.
“Along with the announcement of our new 600-V Super Junction FET power MOSFETs, our expanded foundry agreement will enable us to support the very significant demand that we expect for this device,” said Serge Jaunay, Senior Vice President, MOSFET division, Vishay Intertechnology.
“The work that was invested in the last couple of years has now matured to create this important business upside,” said Dr. Itzhak Edrei, Executive Vice President of Business Groups and Business Development, TowerJazz
