) recently announced the launch of a new Bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD)
technology based on 0.35um silicon-on-insulator (SOI)
Having a low Rsp (specific on-resistance) and capacitance, the
new product is capable of supporting applications that are fully
isolated, require power stages, and operate within high voltage
ranges of 8V to 16V. The product offers minimum isolation area
with a comparatively less device area.
The product synthesizes CMOS (complementary
metal-oxide-semiconductor) and high voltage devices based on SOI
substrates. Apart from high voltage devices like audio amps, DC-
DC converters, and PMICs for mobile and consumer markets, the new
technology will also support standard 3.3V and 5V CMOS digital,
mixed-signal and analog devices.
With this new release MagnaChip has expanded its
silicon-on-insulator based BCD product portfolio which will
enable it to meet the rising demand for applications with
Based in South Korea, MagnaChip designs and manufactures
analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products for high-volume
consumer applications. The company operates through three key
segments: Display Solutions, Power Solutions and Semiconductor
Manufacturing Services. Products offered by the company include
flat panel displays used in LCD, light emitting diode or LED, 3D
televisions and displays as well as mobile PCs.
