Leuven, Belgium--July 7, 1998--Tower Semiconductor, Ltd. (Migdal Haemek, Israel) has collaborated with IMEC (Leuven) to put a new 0.35-m CMOS process on-line, 12 months after the processtransfer started.
The joint project included the transfer and installation of IMEC's0.35 m front-end process, and development work to adapt it to Tower'sscaled back-end process. A number of process steps were performed atIMEC's submicron pilot line to speed up the integration phase at Tower.
In its role as technology partner, IMEC has also provided Tower withpersonnel training and access to its knowledge base on process development.
