austriamicrosystems Offers Additional 20V Devices for Its Advanced 0.35µm High-Voltage CMOS Process

The 0.35µm High-Voltage CMOS process H35 fully supports supply voltages from 3.3V to 120V on a single

Unterpremstaetten, Austria (September 12, 2007) - austriamicrosystems' Full Service Foundry business unit
announced today at the Fabless Semiconductor Association (FSA) Supplier Expo in Santa Clara the
offering of its leading edge 0.35µm High-Voltage CMOS technology H35 with an additional set of 20V
NMOS and PMOS devices. The new extension allows the integration of 3.3V, 5V, 20V, 50V and 120V
devices on a single chip without any process changes.

The new thin-, mid- and thick oxide NMOS and PMOS devices with optimized area and very low Ron resistance as
well as a new Metal-Insulator-Metal capacitor (MIMCAP) make the 20V option a competitive solution for fabless
design houses and IDMs developing power management products and display drivers for battery powered

austriamicrosystems' 0.35µm HV-CMOS technology is the first purely CMOS based High-Voltage process that
matches BCD performance and chip sizes at much lower process complexity. It is based on the 0.35µm CMOS
process transferred from TSMC. H35 offers fully scalable High-Voltage NMOS and PMOS devices, floating logic
libraries as well as a best-in-class power-on resistance. For its fully automotive and medical qualified H35 process,
austriamicrosystems delivers its industry benchmark design environment ("HIT-Kit"), which comes complete with IO
libraries, special utilities optimized for High-Voltage CMOS product design and excellent characterized circuit
simulation models.

"The extension of our 0.35µm High-Voltage CMOS technology portfolio with this new 20V devices strengthens
austriamicrosystems' commitment to provide our customers with best-in-class analog semiconductor process
technology, manufacturing and services" says Thomas Riener, General Manager of austriamicrosystems' business
unit Full Service Foundry. "Our H35 technology platform now fully supports supply voltages from 3.3V, 5V, 20V,
50V and 120V on a single chip. Lowest process complexity in combination with area and performance optimized
devices gives our customers an enormous competitive advantage in developing their products such as power
management products and display drivers for battery powered applications."
