MagnaChip to Begin Ramping Its 0.35um Mixed-Signal Process for MEMS Accelerometer Applications

SEOUL, South Korea and Cupertino, Calif., Feb. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation ("MagnaChip") (NYSE: MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products, today announced that MagnaChip's foundry services has begun ramping its 0.35um mixed-signal process for MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) Accelerometer applications.

The MEMS Accelerometer is a device which measures gravity and the acceleration of materials. One of the major features of a MEMS device is its ability to instantly detect motion change and impact. MEMS devices are now widely found in mobile applications such as handsets, personal navigation devices as well as game console controllers.

MagnaChip's low noise and very cost effective 0.35um mixed-signal technology has allowed us to successfully ramp to production the MEMS Accelerometer applications used in mobile devices. These products will benefit from our premium mixed-signal process to ensure their accuracy and functionality.

"We are pleased to announce the availability of our 0.35um mixed-signal foundry process for MEMS Accelerometer applications used in mobile devices," said Namkyu Park, Vice President of MagnaChip's Foundry Marketing. "This is an example of our continued effort to develop highly differentiated mixed-signal technology solutions that meet the growing application-specific needs of our foundry customers."
