Jazz Semiconductor and Sipex Corp. have collaborated to develop a number of power management devices utilising Jazz' 0.5µm and 0.25µm Bipolar CMOS DMOS (BCD) processes. BCD processes provide features that enable higher levels of integration, smaller size, and better efficiency than general foundry offerings.

Sipex is using the Jazz BCD05 process for the continued development of their family of WLED backlighting solutions for notebook and monitor displays. The combination of high voltage and small geometries allow the integration of digital interfaces and the capability of driving large numbers of LEDs in series. In addition, the BCD05 process will also be used to manufacture Sipex's PowerBlox devices, as well as the company's first subµm interface device.

"We are expanding our roadmap for BCD processes to continue to provide our customers with access to technology that can be utilised to develop more integrated power and analogue products," said Marco Racanelli, vice president of technology and engineering, Jazz.

Adds Lee Cleveland, vice president of engineering, Sipex, "With the emergence of the analogue foundry model and the growth in production of power management ICs, our collaboration with Jazz endorses our timely focus on the right market."
