MagnaChip Launches Silicon BCD Tech

Zacks Equity Research

MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation (MX) recently announced the launch of a new Bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (:BCD) technology based on 0.35um silicon-on-insulator (:SOI) substrates.

Having a low Rsp (specific on-resistance) and capacitance, the new product is capable of supporting applications that are fully isolated, require power stages, and operate within high voltage ranges of 8V to 16V. The product offers minimum isolation area with a comparatively less device area.

The product synthesizes CMOS (complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor) and high voltage devices based on SOI substrates. Apart from high voltage devices like audio amps, DC- DC converters, and PMICs for mobile and consumer markets, the new technology will also support standard 3.3V and 5V CMOS digital, mixed-signal and analog devices.

With this new release MagnaChip has expanded its silicon-on-insulator based BCD product portfolio which will enable it to meet the rising demand for applications with isolation feature.

Based in South Korea, MagnaChip designs and manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products for high-volume consumer applications. The company operates through three key segments: Display Solutions, Power Solutions and Semiconductor Manufacturing Services. Products offered by the company include flat panel displays used in LCD, light emitting diode or LED, 3D televisions and displays as well as mobile PCs.

MagnaChip currently carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy). Other-stocks in the same industry worth considering include NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NXPI), Microchip Technology Inc. (MCHP) and Monolithic Power Systems Inc. (MPWR). While Microchip and Monolithic carry a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), NXP carries a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
