TowerJazz Discusses Role of SiGe Technology for Communication Systems

TowerJazz participated at SEMICON China, which took place at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from March 14 - 16, 2017. TowerJazz’s Dr. Edward Preisler delivered a presentation addressing the role of SiGe technology in providing solutions for advanced wireless and wireline communication systems such as 4G and 5G handsets, IoT devices, automotive radar systems, high-speed data networks and data center communications. Their SiGe BiCMOS technology provides best-in-class solutions for the needs of its fast growing base of Chinese customers.

TowerJazz discussed the challenge of wireless front-end module integration and small package requirements solved with its 0.18 um SiGe power amplifier technology that builds all the elements of a wireless front-end module on a single chip. This leading technology combines a power amplifier with a high performance low-noise-amplifier, a switch, digital circuitry and power control, all on a single die.

The presentation also included demonstrations of TowerJazz’s high-performance SiGe technology for very high-data rate wireless links at 60 GHz (WiFi 802.11ad), breakthrough results for 5G wireless communications, as well as circuit blocks for next-generation 100GbE and 400GbE wireline data networks.
