ERFURT, Germany — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 12, 2014 —
X-FAB Silicon Foundries, the leading analog/mixed-signal foundry and expert in “More than Moore” technologies
Will exhibit its high-performance power management solutions in 0.18 and 0.35 micrometer technologies at the Applied Power Electronics (APEC) 2014 Conference and Exposition in Fort Worth, Texas, next week. These solutions include its ultra-high-voltage CMOS process and a new analog cell library available in its XU035 process that helps engineers design monolithic AC/DC converters. APEC is the premier event in Applied Power Electronics™; it focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business.
X-FAB’s new library of analog building blocks helps designers create AC LED and AC/DC converter applications quickly and efficiently. X-FAB believes it is the first foundry to offer such a comprehensive targeted analog library, with 13 new IP blocks including a 5V linear regulator and voltage reference. Schematic, layout and simulation are available for these IP blocks; silicon proof is expected mid-2014. The library is based on X-FAB’s cost-optimized XU035 technology – a 0.35 micrometer modular 700V ultra-high-voltage non-epi CMOS process with single 5V gate oxide; it is engineered for applications requiring an integrated power and start-up device solution. The XU035 process offers low specific On-resistance 700V power devices and the lowest mask count in the foundry industry, enabling the most cost-effective solutions for consumer applications. This technology is ideal for energy conservation applications such as AC LED lighting, chargers with no-load power consumption and other power conversion and control applications.
