Zarlink Semiconductor announced the release of a subµ BiCMOS process technology specifically addressing increasing customer demand for control and intelligence in power management chips.

The new technology combines Zarlink Analog Foundry's 20V 5GHz WPX/Y analog bipolar technology with a set of CMOS control aspects that are crucial in the fabrication of electronic components responsible for controlling power and extending battery life in consumer products, such as game consoles, mobile telephones and computers, as well as certain automotive applications.

"Most competing BiCMOS offerings are CMOS-centric with poor bipolar components. Building on our WP bipolar power management process expertise, we have integrated our 0.8µ CMOS process to develop the only true analog bipolar BiCMOS technology available. Our next steps are to incorporate our DMOS technology onto this process to permit the development of a BCDMOS process capability," said Dr. Peter Osborne, chief technology officer, Zarlink Analog Foundry.

Zarlink Analog Foundry will be discussing its new BiCMOS process technology at the 2006 FSA Suppliers Expo and Conference in Taipei, Taiwan next week (Nov. 8).
