MagnaChip Semiconductor, a South Korea-based designer and producer of mixed and analog-signal semiconductor products, has declared that its foundry services has ramped up its 0.35 µm mixed-signal processes for use in micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) accelerometer applications.
The MEMS accelerometer is an instrument used to measure the acceleration and gravity of materials. One of the main qualities of a MEMS device is its capability to determine impact and motion change immediately. MEMS devices are now commonly used in mobile applications, including game console controllers, personal navigation devices and handsets.
MagnaChip Semiconductor’s 0.35 µm mixed-signal process is a low noise technology. The highly cost-effective technology has enabled the company to successfully ramp to manufacturing the MEMS accelerator applications utilized in mobile devices. The company’s high-quality mixed-signal process helps in ensuring the accuracy and functionality of these mobile devices.
Namkyu Park, who serves as Vice President of Foundry Marketing at MagnaChip Semiconductor, stated that the company is happy to declare the availability of its 0.35 µm mixed-signal foundry process technology for MEMS accelerometer applications utilized in mobile devices.
Park added that this is an illustration of the company’s ongoing efforts to design vastly distinguished mixed-signal process technology solutions based on the ever-increasing application-specific requirements of its foundry customers.
