Austriamicrosystems AG, Avago Technologies, and X-FAB Join Fab Owners Association

The Fab Owners Association (FOA), the association of semiconductor / MEMS manufacturing executives and suppliers, has announced the addition of three new device maker members: austriamicrosystems AG, a leading global designer and manufacturer of analog ICs for communications, industrial, medical and automotive applications; Avago Technologies, which provides an extensive range of analog, mixed-signal and optoelectronic components and subsystems to many of the world’s top original equipment manufacturers; and X-FAB, the world's leading foundry group for mixed-signal semiconductor applications.

“The addition of these companies is especially significant in three ways,” stated L.T. Guttadauro, FOA executive director. “By growing our global membership base, we have networks that span the world’s key electronics centers. Next, FOA members represent the broad diversity of semiconductors for a myriad of technologies and markets. Third, the FOA gives a common voice to both public and private companies. Through this unity, we have the manufacturing knowledge and mass to expand the number of strategic projects we can introduce and manage.

“With over 60 semiconductor and MEMS manufacturing fabrication facilities worldwide, we can influence collaborative procurement activities on a global basis,” Mr. Guttadauro concluded.

The FOA also announced that it gained a new associate member - National Grid, strategic economic development program sponsor for upstate New York.

The FOA’s device maker members are the following companies: AMI Semiconductor, Austriamicrosystems AG, Avago Technologies, Cypress Semiconductor, Delphi Microelectronics Center, Fairchild Semiconductor, Freescale Semiconductor, International Rectifier, Intersil, Jazz Semiconductor, MagnaChip Semiconductor, Micrel Semiconductor, Microchip Technology, NXP, ON Semiconductor, Skyworks Solutions, Spansion, and X-FAB.

FOA device maker member companies represent approximately 1,100,000 eight-inch-equivalent monthly wafer starts and over US$27 billion in annual revenue.
