TowerJazz and Triune Systems Announce Neo-Iso™ Products Ramping to Mass Production

Neo-Iso™ enables HVAC and home automation systems to reduce form factor, increase reliability and reduce cost

Home Automation Market expected to reach $16.4 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 24.6% from 2014 to 2019

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. & RICHARDSON, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 2, 2014TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, and Triune Systems LLC, a mixed signal and power management IC provider, today announced that Triune has developed a proprietary isolated power and data technology using the TowerJazz TS18PM process on its state of the art 0.18um based power management platform. This innovative technology is showcased in Triune’s Neo-Iso™ products, two isolated load switches currently ramping to volume production; TS13001 and TS13101. According to a report published by Transparency Market Research, the home automation market is expected to reach $16.4 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 24.6% from 2014 to 2019.

Triune’s TS13001 and TS13101 are galvanically isolated load switches that replace mechanical relays in HVAC, home automation, and industrial control systems. The products are low-profile switches with low Rdson, have current limit and fault protection circuitry, and are easily controlled through a simple microcontroller interface. The level of galvanic isolation can be scaled from 100V to 10kV, based on the needs of the system. Device options include both a non-latching TS13001 and latching TS13101 device for replacing most relay applications. These products enable next generation home automation systems that are thin, compact, portable and reliable.

“We developed this unique and innovative isolated technology with TowerJazz because they offered the best process for our needs,” said Ross Teggatz, President of Triune Systems. “Our Neo-Iso™ technology further leverages TowerJazz’s processes to provide truly unique solutions that can drive exciting and differentiated home automation applications, and we look forward to developing several new products based on this technology.”

"Triune has been a strong partner and we are excited to see innovative products such as the Neo-Iso™ isolated load switches introduced on our power management platform," said Dr. Marco Racanelli, Senior Vice President of Power Business Group, TowerJazz. “Working with customers like Triune that push performance and innovation boundaries is what helps us bring to market best-in-class process technology. Our latest 0.18um power management platform combines some of the industry's lowest on-resistance high voltage devices, with 0.18um digital capability and non-volatile memory, serving the consumer, industrial, and automotive markets."
