Microchip, Skyworks join Fab Owners Association for best-practices exchange

Mar. 29, 2007 — The Fab Owners Association (FOA), an association of semiconductor / MEMS manufacturing executives and suppliers, welcomes two new device maker members, Microchip Technology Inc., provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, and Skyworks Solutions Inc., maker of analog and mixed signal semiconductors.

“I believe it is still possible to be competitive with semiconductor manufacturing in the United States,” said Terry Pope, Skyworks Solutions vice-president of semiconductor manufacturing. “To do this requires that companies take advantage of every opportunity to reduce input costs, maximize efficiency of fab tools, and minimize the cost to maintain top factory performance. The Fab Owners Association provides a forum for best practices, as well as an opportunity for aggregated efficiencies. Member participation is an advantage.”

Additionally, Excimer Laser Repair Corp. and MAX International Engineering Group have joined as associate members.

The FOA’s other device maker members are: AMI Semiconductor, 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 ZMD AG
