Austriamicrosystems AG is a leading designer and manufacturer of high performance analog ICs, combining more than 25 years of analog design capabilities and system know-how with its own state-of-the-art manufacturing and test facilities. austriamicrosystems leverages its expertise in low power and high accuracy to provide industry-leading customized and standard analog products. Operating worldwide with more than 1,000 employees, austriamicrosystems focuses on the areas of power management, sensors & sensor interfaces, portable audio and car access in its markets Communications, Industry & Medical and Automotive, complemented by its Full Service Foundry activities. We combine more than 25 years of analog design capabilities and system know-how with our own state-of-the-art manufacturing and test facilities, offering the benefits of a vertically integrated supplier. austriamicrosystems offers high performance integrated analog and mixed-signal process technologies such as CMOS, HV-CMOS and SiGe (silicon germanium). Within this project the extended integration of sensors / photonic devices to CMOS wafers will be developed.
austriamicrosystems is listed on the SWX Swiss Exchange in Zurich (ticker symbol: AMS).
As work package leader for WP7 Integration process steps needed to realize the introduction of a photonic layer or device with low temperature technology either at metallization level or at the backside of AMS CMOS wafer will be investigated. Based on a proprietary concept from austriamicrosystems through wafer contacts to connect backside photonic devices will be developed. In order to build a complete chain of integration, a TIA for 10Gb/s will be designed by TUV and implemented in AMS 0.35µm SiGe technology. Based on wafers with these TIAs interconnection to photonic devices will be provided and investigated in system evaluations.
