Jazz Rolls Out 0.18um Process

Newport Beach-based Jazz Semiconductor has rolled out a new CMOS semiconductor process at 0.18um, as the company targets integrated analog, RF, and power semiconductor designs at the foundry. The company said that its new 0.18um process allows for integration of power devices such as regulators, battery chargers, and power amplifiers with Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC), and should serve designers of cellular phones, wireless handheld devices, consumer electronics, and displays with better integration and cheaper components.
