X-FAB is the world’s largest analog/mixed-signal foundry group
manufacturing silicon wafers for mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs). Its marketing network and client base span the Americas, Europe and Asia, offering manufacturing capacity of approximately 864,000 200mm-equivalent wafers per year. The largest specialty fab group, X-FAB is unlike typical foundry services because of its specialized expertise in advanced analog and mixed-signal process technologies.
These technologies are not intended for digital applications with the smallest possible structure sizes, but rather are targeted for analog applications that can be integrated with additional functions such as high voltage, non-volatile memory or sensors. By combining solid, specialized expertise in advanced analog and mixed-signal process technologies with excellent service, a high level of responsiveness and first-class technical support, X-FAB optimally manages the product development flow and supply chain for its customers' semiconductor products.
Five manufacturing sites in Germany, the U.S. and Malaysia
At its five manufacturing sites in Germany, the U.S., and Malaysia, X-FAB manufactures wafers on modular CMOS and BiCMOS processes with technologies ranging from 1.0 to 0.18 µm, and special BCD, SOI and MEMS long-lifetime processes. The sites can handle approximately 72,000 8-inch equivalent wafer starts per month in total. Always endeavoring to create long-term customer relationships based on stability, reliability and confidence in X-FAB's expertise, X-FAB adds value to the wafer manufacturing process by offering customers outstanding technical support.
X-FAB customers benefit from high-performance technologies, excellent technical design and prototyping services; and fast, easy and flexible foundry access worldwide. Privately held and headquartered in Erfurt, Germany, X-FAB has sustained steady growth year over year, often exceeding that of the industry at large. It currently employs approximately 2,400 people worldwide.
The X-FAB Group is organized under the umbrella of X-FAB Silicon Foundries SE, a holding company located in Tessenderlo, Belgium. Corporate headquarters are located in Erfurt, Germany.
