Semiconix Semiconductor designs and manufactures analog devices built on semiconductor linear technology. Semiconix Semiconductor Designs and manufactures standard and custom bipolar and MOS analog devices, semiconductors, analog integrated circuits, discrete components for high performance systems such as cellular/wireless, video amplifiers, heart pacemakers and medical imaging systems. Standard semiconductor components are designed and manufactured for space, medical, telecommunications and military applications only. Company's technology road map is including SiGe epi devices for high speed RF bipolars and high speed fiber optic and optoelectronic applications. Analog devices, ASIC analog design and manufacturing: Semiconix produces a series of semi-custom bipolar analog devices in arrays that are customized by designing a specific metal interconnection mask. The arrays contain a large number of undedicated active and passive components, i.e. transistors, diodes, resistors, capacitors, MOSFET s, LDMOS, photodiodes, phototransistors, etc. Since wafers are stocked before the metal mask, the custom IC development phase is shorter and far less expensive compared to conventional full custom ICs. Customers may provide own analog design. Optoelectronic components: photodiodes, photodiodes arrays, phototransistors, position sensing devices, optocouplers, optoisolators, photodarlington, high voltage phototransistors output, Schottky infrared detectors. Discrete semiconductors: Schottky diodes, Zenner diodes, TVS, small signal bipolar transistors, high voltage bipolar transistors, matched pair bipolar transistors, small signal JFET s and MOSFET s, MCT (MOS controlled tyristors), IGBT. Semiconix 's Divisions: HTE Labs Provides Wafer Foundry, R&D support and Specialty Wafer Fab Processing (including thin film vacuum deposition services) to customers from semiconductors and microelectronics industry. Wafer foundry includes the following processes: 20V, 45V, 75V, 25V super-beta and high voltage dielectric isolated bipolar process. R&D support is provided in the following fields of microelectronics: thin film active and passive components technologies, flip chip technology (TiW/Cu/Cu/SnPb), sensor technologies (inertial, pressure, temperature, gas and smoke detectors), optoelectronic technologies and components, discrete and integrated circuits technology development for special applications, LiNbO3 applications like SAW, Ti diffused, light wave guides and Mach-Zender light modulators. Specialty wafer fab processing: epitaxy, SiGe, epi, diffusion and oxidation, ion implant, LPCVD and PECVD Si3N4, SiO2, platinum silicidation, photo-lithography, plasma etching, silicon micro-machining by KOH anisotropic etch, sputter depositions of Ti/Ni/Ag lift off process, Ti/Pt/Au lift off process, sputter depositions of thin film resistors : SiCr, NiCr, TaN2, silicon wafers back grind and polish followed by trimetal backside sputter depositions, gold backside sputter depositions and alloy : gold electroplating and gold bump.

GOLD CHIP TECHNOLOGY™
The overwhelming majority of semiconductor devices, from discrete devices to complex integrated circuits are manufactured these days with aluminum or copper interconnections. Both metals are very susceptible to corrosion under normal conditions of humidity and air composition. This is main reason semiconductor devices are protected in a package that is many times larger than the chip itself. The need for smaller and lighter consumer and industrial products has pushed the semiconductor manufacturing industry towards reducing the volume occupied by the package. If the package is eliminated all together than we can build the smallest products. Yes, that is very good, but now we are faced with a bare die that is exposed to humidity and corrosive components of the atmosphere. What is the solution? The solution is very simple, just use Gold for interconnection instead of aluminum and copper. The idea is not new at all. Gold has been used with success almost exclusive in hybrid circuits and in microwave and high reliability semiconductor devices. So with Gold interconnection we eliminate the package, we have the highest reliability device and we can assemble all these dies in systems with highest packing density and miniaturization that we could not do before. The transition from aluminum or copper to all gold interconnections and from a package to bare die or flip chip is not always straight forward and without technological barriers. Building on its 24 years heritage, SEMICONIX has undertaken the task to redesign, develop, manufacture and offer to electronic industry at large the future semiconductor components compatible with chip and wire, flip chip, chip scale CSP and surface mount technologies. Highest reliability discrete semiconductor devices from the simplest diode to complex integrated circuits manufactured with gold interconnection and well-engineered processes and materials are marketed by Semiconix as GOLD CHIP TECHNOLOGY™.
