Specialty foundry TowerJazz (which has two fabrication plants at Tower Semiconductor Ltd in Migdal Haemek, Israel plus one at its US subsidiary Jazz Semiconductor in Newport Beach, CA) says that its sixth annual technology conference, the TowerJazz Global Symposium (TGS) at its Newport Beach facility, will consist of an Aerospace and Defense focused day on 2 November and a Commercial Day on 3 November. The firm says that this year it will highlight its aim to be the global source for a broad range of customized technologies and unique design enablement platforms to facilitate diverse solutions. Guest speakers include executives from ARMY NVESD, Microsemi, NASA Goddard, SaberTek, and SRI as well as professors from UCI (University of California, Irvine) and UCSD (University of California, San Diego).

The Aerospace & Defense day will feature an overview of TowerJazz technologies such as silicon germanium (SiGe) and CMOS image sensors (CIS) as well as a presentation on radiation tolerance by Jonathan Pellish of NASA Goddard. The keynote presented by Dr. Phil Perconti, director Science and Technology Division of the US ARMY Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD), will focus on ‘Army Future Trends for CMOS Image Sensors and IR Read-Out Integrated Circuits’.

The Commercial day highlights TowerJazz’s strategy to be a global source for diverse solutions. The keynote will be presented by CEO Russell Ellwanger. Also, company executives will provide overviews and updates on TowerJazz’s range of technology solutions including SiGe/RF/high-performance analog, power management, CMOS image sensors, MS/CMOS and its design enablement capabilities. The firm has expanded its capacity and will discuss its recent acquisition of the fab in Nishiwaki, Japan as well as its business strategy.

All participants will have an opportunity to meet with top executives from TowerJazz as well as leading semiconductor industry companies. Major electronic design automation (EDA) vendors and IP providers will be available to discuss updated design solutions.
