To that end, last year Jazz signed on Shanghai-based Advanced Semiconductor Mfg Corp. (ASMC) as a licensee and second source for Jazz's 0.35?m SiGe process, currently the mainstream technology at Jazz. That relationship will continue to be developed.

Jazz has capacity of about 21,000 wafers per month at its Newport Beach, California fab, and the two Shanghai partners will match that amount of capacity, he said.

Jazz has 45 customers, with $185 million in revenues expected this year, up from $160 million last year.

"Our expanded capacity now positions Jazz to handle the aggressive growth forecasts made by participants in the wireless and analog market segments," said Shu Li, president and CEO of Jazz. "The analog and RF designs on which we focus are at the heart of some of the leading technologies being deployed today, including consumer electronics, wireless communications, and personal computer applications."
