Sipex Corp., a provider of analog ICs, has entered into an exclusive manufacturing agreement with PolarFab, a U.S.-based, pure-play semiconductor foundry. Under this exclusive arrangement, PolarFab will provide wafer manufacturing services for Sipex products.

PolarFab will install the necessary capacity in order to meet Sipex's long term business plan. In return for exclusivity, Sipex will receive preferential treatment on wafer prices, delivery, and engineering support from PolarFab.

With this new agreement, PolarFab will fabricate all high end products in Sipex's power management and interface families, in addition to continuing to provide wafer fabrication for Sipex's photo detector DVD solutions. PolarFab's range of bipolar and BiCMOS processes and wafer manufacturing technologies is expected to allow Sipex to provide products with higher speed and increased accuracy while reducing new product time-to-market.
