Fairchild Semiconductor recently announced a five-year foundry agreement with Jilin Sino-Microelectronics (JSMC) to manufacture selected Fairchild MOSFET and bipolar power products. JSMC will use its recently completed wafer fab in Jilin City, Jilin Province in China.
Jilin Sino-Microelectronics will provide additional capacity for Fairchild's more mature power products to support its customers' growth. This complements Fairchild's strategy to increase the in-house manufacturing of its top-line power products. Fairchild recently announced the expansion of its Mountaintop, Pa., plant dedicated to power components and is rapidly ramping production at its new Suzhou, China assembly and test facility.
