Overview:
The emergence of state-of-the-art BCD & Analog CMOS platform technologies is having a far reaching effect on the analog/mixed-signal IC. The system-level benefits of the BCD & Analog CMOS technology platform are as substantial as the benefits of the past digital CMOS integration in terms of system cost-effectiveness, reliability, high performance, and programmability.

Power IC technologies have been implemented in all end-application types, and across the entire analog domain and levels of integration from single-function Discretes to highly integrated Power SoCs solutions.

Dongbu HiTek’s Analog technology has delivered a variety of Power product solutions in the Automotive, Industrial, Wireless and Consumer market segments.

This webinar will highlight Dongbu HiTek’s latest 2 technology releases in the BCD and Analog CMOS spaces – Low-Vgs BD350 and AN180. Low-Vgs BD350 takes the existing, industry-best 0.35um, 60V BCD process (BD350) and optimizes the LDMOS power transistors to operate from the logic CMOS Vgs levels. This enables designers to avoid the dedicated 12V supply needed previously, thereby simplifying the designs but without any Rsp penalty. AN180 is a 0.18um Analog CMOS process optimized for performance and density. A 1.8V/5V process, it also offers HVCMOS devices up to 30V, making it a very flexible technology. AN180 will be the base of a series of 0.18um platform technologies to be rolled out thru 2010.
