TowerJazz and Vishay Intertechnology Inc. are expanding their business relationship to include planar MOSFETs and Super Junction MOSFETs.

Production of these products under the terms of the expanded relationship between TowerJazz and Vishay is expected to result in tens of millions of dollars in additional yearly revenue.

New business between the two companies will include increased production of Vishay Siliconix high-voltage power MOSFETs. In addition, TowerJazz will manufacture Vishay Siliconix Super Junction FET Power MOSFETs. These devices, with very low RDS(on), provide lower conduction losses that save energy in power factor correction and pulse-width modulation applications in a wide range of electronic systems, including LCD TVs, PCs, servers, switch mode power supplies, and telecom systems.

"Along with the announcement of our new 600V Super Junction FET power MOSFETs, our expanded foundry agreement will enable us to support the very significant demand that we expect for this device," said Serge Jaunay, senior VP, MOSFET division, Vishay. "The strong support, technical capabilities, and performance of TowerJazz have resulted in our expanded business relationship with the foundry."

"With the expansion of our foundry agreements, including the aforementioned new and strongly differentiated product platform families, Vishay Siliconix will remain one of our top customers, continuing to propel our overall first in foundry y-on-y growth. The work that was invested in the last couple of years has now matured to create this important business upside," said Itzhak Edrei, executive VP of business groups and business development, TowerJazz.
