High Performance Analog (HPA)
We are the industry's only pure play foundry with multi-fab SiGe BiCMOS capability for the manufacture of HPA products optimized for high-speed and low power devices for today's high-frequency networking and wireless communications. Our industry-leading SiGe BiCMOS process reaches switching speeds of greater than 280GHz and is ideal for automotive radar, mmwave components, TIAs, LD, CDRs, Femtocells/Picocells and Fiber Channel applications.
To meet our customers' needs to deliver competitively differentiated products, we offer customizable design kits geared for high frequency devices. To minimize design spins, we leverage our design enablement and HPA application expertise for first-pass success. Our SiGe process utilizes state-of-the-art processing technology in order to drive high speed performance while providing an ideal platform for logic and analog integration. In addition, we offer a complimentary process with vertical PNPs on NPNs for ease of design for storage pre-amp and DSL applications. Offering MIM caps from 1fF/um2 to 5.6fF/um2, deep trench, and metal layer options from 3 to 6 layer metal, this process makes it easier for designers to optimize the process to their applications.
