Tower To Manufacture Image Sensors for Cypress

Reuters: Tower will collaborate with Cypress in manufacturing CMOS image sensors using 0.18um process on Tower's Fab2. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Reuters source said it would be worth about $10 million a year to Tower.

: In a separate PR Cypress and Tower announced the successful completion of Cypress’s first 0.18um stitched large-format CIS device. Tower’s stitching technology overcomes photolithography tool limitations to seamlessly tile 5.5um pixel sections into a large pixel array. This technology enables manufacturing of die sizes up to a single die per 200-mm wafer.

Cypress and Tower have collaborated on CIS products for more than five years, primarily using Tower’s Fab 1 technology. Cypress is now also using Fab 2’s advanced 0.18um process.
