X-FABX-FAB Silicon Foundries Group is to form a strategic partnership with sensor and IC systems-provider Micronas.

The foundry will manufacture the 0.18 micrometer high-voltage CMOS process, to which it has recently added a new embedded flash module, as well as all related products. Micronas will act as X-FAB’s technology partner, with the ability to produce the products at its own facilities. The partnership will also see Micronas acquiring a €10 million stake in X-FAB.

Hans-Jürgen Straub, chief executive officer of X-FAB said, "Our technological expertise, the product experience of Micronas and X-FAB's manufacturing experience garnered over many years in the automobile industry provide the ideal foundation for the long-term expansion of both our market positions in this segment.”

Matthias Bopp, chief executive officer of Micronas said, "In X-FAB we have found the perfect partner to provide Micronas with the best possible support for the 0.18 micrometer high-voltage CMOS process with embedded flash."
