TowerJazz receives fourth Foundry Supplier of the Year award plus Quality Iron Man Partner award from Skyworks

Specialty foundry TowerJazz (which has fabrication plants at Tower Semiconductor Ltd in Migdal Haemek, Israel, and at its subsidiaries Jazz Semiconductor Inc in Newport Beach, CA, USA and TowerJazz Japan Ltd) has received the 2012 Foundry Supplier of the Year award and the Quality Iron Man award from analog and mixed-signal semiconductor manufacturer Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA. TowerJazz has been recognized as Foundry Supplier of the Year for the fourth time, providing “excellent quality, performance and solid alignment with Skyworks’ supply chain requirements”.

TowerJazz has received supplier awards from Skyworks for the past five years – including Foundry Supplier of the Year, Innovation Partner of the Year, Overall Supplier of the Year, and now Quality Iron Man Partner of the Year.

Skyworks uses a broad range of TowerJazz’s specialty process offerings including mixed-signal CMOS, RFCMOS, silicon germanium (SiGe) BiCMOS, SOI (silicon-on-insulator) and BCD (bipolar-CMOS-DMOS) to develop differentiated products across their target market segments.

“Skyworks is a diversified, fast-growing company, and a top five customer of TowerJazz… their product direction is increasingly using specialty silicon based technologies – effectively more than tripling our served market over the next several years,” says David Postula, TowerJazz’s VP of North American sales.

“The Iron Man award clearly demonstrates our commitment to quality and manufacturing excellence,” notes Don Cerney, TowerJazz’s VP of worldwide quality and reliability. “We work very diligently toward our goals of zero customer returns, 100% on time delivery, world-class yields and total customer satisfaction,” he adds.

“We truly appreciate the validation from Skyworks and their confidence in our technology platforms as we continue to align our roadmaps toward the next-generation needs of all of our key customers, particularly in the fast-growth area of wireless front-end-modules with our RF SOI and SiGe technologies,” comments Dr Marco Racanelli, senior VP & general manager of RF/High Performance Analog and Power business groups at TowerJazz.
