TowerJazz will produce Motor Drivers for active-semi
19 March, 2018
The two companies Announced the Ramp to Production of a Motor Driver IC on TowerJazz' 200V SOI Technology
TowerJazz ramps up the production of active-semi’s high-voltage integrated motor controller and driver PAC5232. The driver is using TowerJazz’s 200V power SOI technology (TS18SOI), charactrized with high isolation scheme and enables the integration of multiple circuits, at a small footprint while supporting voltages up to 200V. The 200V SOI platform offers negative voltages operation down to minus 200V and low leakage at high temperatures.
“By using their process, we could achieve smaller footprint and higher efficiency with our PAC solution for the target high voltage battery powered market segment,” said David Briggs, Vice President & General Manager, Power Solutions at active-semi International. Founded in 2004 in Silicon Valley and headquartered in Dallas, Texas, active-semi PROVIDES power management and intelligent digital motor drive ICs. active-semi is a multi-national company with over 170 patents granted and pending. It is backed by Venture Capital firms, including, USVP, Tenaya Capital, LG and LDV Partners.
