Jazz Semiconductor Issues Call for Papers for AIMS-CAT Conference

Jazz Semiconductor®, the leader in Analog-Intensive Mixed-Signal (AIMS) foundry solutions and wholly owned subsidiary of Jazz Technologies[tm], Inc. (AMEX:JAZ), announced the Call for Papers for its 2008 Analog-Intensive Mixed-Signal Circuits, Applications, and Technology (AIMS-CAT) Conference. This focused one-day event, set for October 22, will be held at the Jazz Headquarters in Newport Beach, CA in conjunction with the Jazz Annual Technology Conference (JATC) set for the following day. The AIMS-CAT conference will bring together a wide range of technical professionals in leading edge companies from around the world focused on the latest technical advances in Silicon Germanium (SiGe), RF CMOS and BCD (Bipolar CMOS DOS).

This year’s conference series is focused on the central theme of “Analog Technology Convergence Creates New Opportunities for Innovation.” The event will include a list of key invited speakers as well as contributed talks, vendor exhibits, and a cocktail reception hosted by Jazz. All participants will have an opportunity to meet with top executives and technical professionals as well as key technical and management professionals in the semiconductor industry.

Jazz is seeking proposals for papers focused on Analog-Intensive Mixed-Signal (AIMS) topics including advances in design methodology, system architecture, breakthrough IC demonstrations, test/package innovations, modeling and design enablement, and process technology. Application areas may include but are not limited to: Analog and RF Integration, Power Amplifiers and Front-End Modules, High Speed Analog and Millimeter-Wave, Optical Networking, Radar, Power Analog, and MEMS.

Paper Submission Information
Interested participants should submit their proposal (no more than 1,000 words) and include an abstract of the presentation for the conference program (max 100 words) and a presenter’s profile (50 words) as well as the name of author/presenter, company, mailing address, telephone/fax numbers, and e-mail address.

Proposals must be received no later than July 14, 2008. Submissions and questions can be addressed to Melinda Jarrell at melinda.jarrell@jazzsemi.com. Notification of acceptance will be given no later than August 1, 2008. For full submission instructions, please visit www.jazzsemi.com/events/call_for_papers/.

Selected presenters will be required to provide electronic versions of their technical papers and presentations to Jazz by October 3, 2008. Presentations will be included on a CD for all conference attendees.

Jazz Annual Technology Conference (JATC)
All attendees and presenters are encouraged to attend JATC the following day, October 23rd at Jazz Headquarters. There will be a formal exhibition area open on both days (October 22-23) where all attendees will be able to experience the latest from tool and IP providers, design companies, and post wafers service companies.

About Jazz Semiconductor
Jazz Semiconductor®, a wholly owned subsidiary of Jazz Technologies,[tm] Inc. (AMEX:JAZ), is the leading independent wafer foundry focused on Analog-Intensive Mixed-Signal (AIMS) CMOS process technologies including Enhanced RFCMOS and specialty CMOS processes, such as BiCMOS, SiGe BiCMOS, Bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD), and High Voltage CMOS. These technologies are designed to produce analog and mixed-signal semiconductor devices that are smaller and more highly integrated, power-efficient, feature-rich and cost-effective than those produced using standard process technologies. Jazz also offers world-class design enablement tools to speed customers’ time from design to revenue production. The Company serves customers in the wireless and high-speed wireline communications, consumer electronics, automotive and industrial end markets. Jazz executive offices and its U.S. wafer fabrication facilities are located in Newport Beach, CA. Jazz Semiconductor also has engineering and manufacturing support in Shanghai, China.
