Fujitsu and Jazz Semiconductor will work together to manufacture System-on-Chip (SoC) products for RFCMOS devices.
The collaboration is designed to combine RF and mixed signal expertise from Jazz and existing 90nm and 65nm manufacturing technology from Fujitsu, enabling both companies to deliver high-performance Customer Owned Tooling (COT) foundry services to SoC customers. The alliance will enable Fujitsu to offer Jazz’s high-precision RF models and design kits using Fujitsu’s 90nm and 65nm low-leakage, leading-edge LSI manufacturing process. The companies will conduct joint marketing and sales activities, and the products will be manufactured at Fujitsu’s 300 mm Mie fab located in Kuwana city, Mie prefecture in Japan.
“The wireless SoC market is becoming increasingly important. Through this collaboration, we will support customers as they expand their markets,” said Shigeru Fujii, corporate senior vice president and group president of Fujitsu’s Electronic Devices Business Group
“Jazz has RF modeling capabilities, a specialized design platform in analog and mixed-signal technologies and RF expertise. Coupled with Fujitsu’s 65nm and 90nm process technologies and comprehensive library of digital IPs, our joint efforts with Jazz will provide customers access to state-of-the art and flexible manufacturing technology that will provide first-rate solutions,” said Kazuyuki Kawauchi, president and chief executive officer at Fujitsu Microelectronics America.
