Keywords:foundry service? analog chips?

Zarlink Semiconductor Inc. has introduced a new commercial foundry service for producing high-voltage, high-speed analog chips.

Drawing on its expertise in complementary silicon bipolar technology, Zarlink has designed and fully qualified a new process called the HJV (high- performance, process version J, high-voltage) for high-voltage, high-speed analog chips. With HJV, Zarlink hopes to offer an open-market and more cost-effective process capable of fabricating analog chips in all-silicon substrates. Most commercial facilities use more expensive processes, such as GaAs and SOI.

Zarlink's HJV silicon process may be deployed on a range of high-performance analog devices, including DVD laser drivers, DSL line drivers, operational amplifiers, and high-speed amplifiers.
