TowerJazz wins Raytheon NCS Supplier Excellence Award for second year running

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) says that its USA Aerospace and Defense Division has won a Supplier 3 Star Excellence Award from Raytheon Network Centric Systems (NCS) of McKinney, TX for the second year in a row. The NCS Supplier Excellence Program is designed to formally recognize Raytheon's suppliers for exemplary performance and commitment to excellence.

TowerJazz says that many aerospace and defense firms as well as branches of the US military use its specialty process platforms to manufacture a wide variety of solutions. Raytheon in particular uses the CMOS process in TowerJazz's Newport Beach fab for the manufacture of its read-out integrated circuit (ROIC) designs in support of their overall infrared detector products and systems. Raytheon also takes advantage of TowerJazz’s manufacturing expertise, which helps to maintain high yields and quality for downstream detector manufacturing steps, the firm claims.

“It acknowledges that we have achieved our goal to continue supporting this partnership with the highest level of dedication and commitment,” says Mike Scott, TowerJazz’s director of sales & marketing – USA Aerospace and Defense Division, of the award.
