SEOUL, South Korea--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Dongbu HiTek today announced that it will manufacture a Low Frequen
ICs for Micro Analog Systems Oy (MAS), a fabless analog semiconductor company based in Espoo, Finland. Serving as a core co
radio controlled time-signal application, the LF receiver chips will be manufactured at Dongbu HiTek’s world class wafer fab using
BCDMOS process at the 0.35-micron node.
According to Dongbu HiTek, the LF receiver chip destined for MAS has been designed to enable accurate real-time capture of rad
from time signal stations around the world. Significantly the LF receiver chip captures time calibration data via low frequency (long
transmissions regardless of the location of the transmitter or receiver. As a result, LF communications overcomes limitations associat
high frequency (short wave) techniques.
“Our sales momentum continues to build across U.S., Japan, and Europe thanks to our sharpened focus on developing and manufa
class analog and mixed-signal chips,” said Jae Song, VP of Dongbu HiTek’s Analog Foundry Business Unit. “Adding MAS to our
customer roster demonstrates our strengthening competitiveness in the high-performance analog sector, fueled by our commitment t
customer value while improving our gross margin.”
Dongbu HiTek has been distinguishing itself as a global analog and mixed-signal technology leader since June 2008 when it launche
BCDMOS process at the 0.18 micron level node. This year, the company plans to introduce mid-voltage (less than 20V) BCDMO
phones as well as ultra-high voltage (more than 200V) BCDMOS for industrial applications. The company aims to further distinguis
BCDMOS via the integration of high-performance analog functions.
