TowerJazz Moving into Commercial IR Market
Jun 2013
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 19, 2013 — Integrated circuit maker TowerJazz said Wednesday it will move into high-volume, commercial infrared wafer manufacturing and expand its presence in some consumer markets.

The company said it will be the CMOS chip manufacturer for traditional infrared applications, such as sensing and camera devices, for aerospace and defense customers, and will expand in consumer markets it already serves, including gaming, personal security and application-driven platforms.

“This development is a natural fit for TowerJazz. Our leading-edge CMOS for custom imaging products and our expertise in bringing specialty processing and MEMS to volume manufacturing fits extremely well with the proven capabilities of our customer,” said Executive Director David Howard.

"This will be the first and only large-scale pure-play foundry capable of producing fully integrated sensors," said CEO Russell Ellwanger. “Combined external and internal investments will expand our existing fabrication as well as facilitize an annex which will be used for certain unique processes."
