MagnaChip Offers Multiple High Voltage Foundry Options Targeting Touch Sensing Applications

SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., May 7, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation ("MagnaChip") (NYSE: MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed signal semiconductor products, today announced that it has broadened its line-up of high voltage options for its 0.18um embedded EEPROM process technology. In addition to 10V and 20V high voltage options, MagnaChip has successfully integrated a 30V option for its 0.18um embedded EEPROM technology. This additional high voltage option provides increased noise immunity by improving the signal-to-noise ratio characteristics of devices, a critical issue in touch sensing IC performance. This is especially true in applications such as smartphones, tablet PCs, notebooks, and smart TVs.  

The latest trend in smartphone and tablet PC touch sensing applications has been a move toward thinner yet larger designs. This trend often makes the electronic circuitry more susceptible to internal and external electrical noise. The various sources of noise, particularly in mobile devices, include the close proximity of various semiconductor components within the system, battery chargers and even external factors such as temperature and humidity. Unwanted electrical noise can generate spurious signals creating false touches in the sensing circuitry.

MagnaChip's process technology enhances the functionality and performance of these newer IC designs by improving their signal-to-noise characteristics. MagnaChip's newly developed 30V process is ideally suited for the larger screen mobile applications that are now being introduced. This new process was developed utilizing a lateral double-diffused MOS structure with sustained performance up to 30V.

"We are very pleased to be able to offer a broad array of high voltage options for our enhanced 0.18um embedded EEPROM process technology," said Namkyu Park, Senior Vice President of Marketing for MagnaChip's Semiconductor Manufacturing Services Division. "Our goal is to continue to develop competitive features that meet the increasing application specific needs of our foundry customers in the fast-changing semiconductor market."
