Tower Semiconductor Ltd has signed an agreement with IMEC for the technology transfer and licensing of analog modules and applicable technologies for Tower's Fab 2. The agreement will expedite Tower's development of specialized analog and mixed-signal technologies, applicable in cellular phones, RF, CMOS image sensors and similar technologies, and will allow Tower to provide such services to its customers at the time of production ramp-up.

The agreement and license include local salicide modules, MIM capacitors, high ohmic polyresistors, N+ and P+ nedium ohmic polyresistors, inductors and MOS and bipolar characterization for silicon ICs.

"Tower's research and design teams will integrate the licensed technologies into advanced analog and mixed-signal capabilities, which will offer high levels of characterization, thus enabling Fab 2 to offer foundry services to a wider variety of customers and applications," said Itzhak Edrei, Tower's VP of research and development. "This transfer is an element of Tower's strategy to integrate added value technologies and features to its baseline of high-density CMOS logic technology."
