TowerJazz Announces H5: a Leading 300GHz SiGe Technology Optimized for 400GbE Communications

TowerJazz augments its Advanced SiGe Terabit Platform and announces initial 400GbE design wins with Broadcom addressing next-generation data communications in networks and data centers
TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced availability of H5; a leading 300GHz SiGe process optimized for 400Gbps optical communications (or 400GbE) which promise to quadruple the capacity of even the fastest links deployed today at 100Gbps, carrying the world’s internet data traffic through networks and in data centers. Wireline data traffic is increasing dramatically, and TowerJazz addresses this growing market through a family of customized advanced foundry silicon-germanium (SiGe) BiCMOS technologies, including its highest performance process to date, H5. In this process, enhancements include increased device Ft and Gm as well as other “proprietary features” to address the 400GbE product space.  Customers can quickly migrate existing products to H5 as layouts are virtually identical to prior generations of technology.  H5 can help reduce power consumption in lower data-rate products or boost data rates to address newer standards. TowerJazz works closely with its customers and tailors its roadmaps to meet their next-generation needs. As such, TowerJazz has worked with leaders in the market to optimize technology for the 400GbE era and already has key design wins in this space, such as Broadcom, a leading designer, developer and global supplier of a broad range of digital and analog semiconductor connectivity solutions. “TowerJazz’s SiGe technology has enabled us to successfully deliver high performing optical ICs across multiple market segments and applications, including 400GbE data center interconnects,” said Dr. Faouzi Chaahoub, Senior Director of Fiber Optic Products Division at Broadcom Limited. “We strongly value our collaboration with Broadcom in this market and continue to invest aggressively in high-speed SiGe to support all of our customers’ next-generation requirements,” said Dr. Marco Racanelli, Sr. Vice President and General Manager of RF & High Performance Analog Business Unit, TowerJazz. â€œSiGe has become the technology of choice for front-end components in high-speed data communications, a market that continues to promise new and exciting opportunities for TowerJazz and our customers.” SiGe Terabit Platform – HX, H2, H3, H4, H5
The TowerJazz SiGe Terabit Platform includes advanced CMOS, together with low-noise, high-speed, and high power SiGe devices and unique patented features that enable best-in-class performance for the most demanding ICs in high-speed communication links.  These components include, for example, trans-impedance amplifiers (TIAs) on the receive path and laser drivers on the transmit path. The addition of H5 to the SiGe Terabit Platform extends a rich history of process technologies that include HX and H2 (addressing 10 to 28Gbps requirements), H3 with SiGe speeds of 280GHz (addressing requirements up to 100Gbps), and now H4 and H5 with transistor speeds that exceed 300GHz and can reduce power consumption by nearly an order of magnitude.   About TowerJazz

TowerJazz Expands Support for its Fast Growing Base of Chinese Customers with Leading SiGe BiCMOS Technologies for Wireless and Wireline Communication Systems

TowerJazz to present its advanced offering at the 2017 SEMICON China conference TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced participation at SEMICON China to be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from March 14 – 16, 2017. TowerJazz’s presentation by Dr. Edward Preisler will address the role of SiGe technology in providing solutions for advanced wireless and wireline communication systems such as 4G and 5G handsets, IoT devices, automotive radar systems, high-speed data networks and data center communications. TowerJazz’s leading SiGe BiCMOS technology provides best-in-class solutions for the needs of its fast growing base of Chinese customers. TowerJazz will discuss the challenge of wireless front-end module integration and small package requirements solved with its 0.18um SiGe power amplifier technology that builds all the elements of a wireless front-end module on a single chip. This leading technology combines a power amplifier with a high performance low-noise-amplifier, a switch, digital circuitry and power control, all on a single die. The presentation will also include demonstrations of TowerJazz’s high-performance SiGe technology for very high-data rate wireless links at 60GHz (WiFi 802.11ad), breakthrough results for 5G wireless communications, as well as circuit blocks for next-generation 100GbE and 400GbE wireline data networks. “TowerJazz has a long history and legacy in SiGe BiCMOS technology development and a proven record of manufacturing excellence,” said Lei Quin, TowerJazz China Country Manager. “We continue to provide great support in China as it consumes a huge percentage of the world’s ICs and internal China fabs can only cover a small percentage of the country’s need. We have been consistently growing our customer base in China and are committed to meeting the rising manufacturing needs in this region. TowerJazz’s presentation on its SiGe BiCMOS process technologies will take place at SEMICON China in Session 3: “Compound Semiconductors in Communications" and will be held on March 16, 2017 from 11:10-11:35.
