Atmel Corp. has added a new high-voltage option to its mixed-signal BCD-on-SOI technology that is offered as a foundry service to customers. Applications that will benefit from the high-voltage option include intelligent drivers for Internet access (DSL) and plasma displays (flat screen monitors).

The company's current "Smart Power" technology includes 0.8?m CMOS devices with up to 80V power dmos transistors on a single chip. A significant amount of logic or even a microprocessor core with high voltage components can be integrated on a single device. The SMARTIS process is suited for automotive power management applications due to a maximum operation temperature of 200&degC.

Atmel has now extended technology foundry service, which includes bipolar LPNP and LNPN transistors as well as low-voltage CMOS and DMOS devices of up to 80V, with the introduction of high voltage DMOS devices operating up to 120V. The new devices are optimized in terms of energy capability and Rdson resistance, enabling new application areas with high-voltage requirements. To speed up and simplify the application process for electronic equipment manufacturers, Atmel can integrate these new high-voltage DMOS devices, together with the standard devices, into Cadence design kits. Design kits with the new 120V option will be available end of this month, with an option to develop EEPROM cells operating up to 200&degC later this year.
