China-based analog specialty foundry, CSMC Technologies (CSMC) is using SOI wafers from Soitec for high voltage IC applications, initially aimed for colour plasma display panel (PDP) driver ICs and other mixed signal and analog applications.
“With this agreement, CSMC will use Soitec's wafers on several major SOI projects for High Voltage and CMOS technology.  We believe the partnership with Soitec will help us to provide a more cost-effective solution to our customers,” said Filian Wu, VP of Analog Process Technology Development Center.

“Over the last two years, we have experienced a strong acceleration of interest in SOI substrates in China mainly by the majority of the largest  local foundries and institutes,” commented Paul Boudre, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Soitec Group. “Today these development projects are moving to first production ramp up and we expect a significant growth of SOI based products in China in the coming years.”
