Use of ON Semiconductor’s 110 nm process technology platform enables development of high reliability solutions for flight critical aerospace applications















International Paris Airshow – LE BOURGET, France – June 17, 2013 – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), driving innovation in energy efficiency, and Airbus, a leading aircraft manufacturer, have collaboratively developed and released to production a complex Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) for the A350 XWB Flight Control Computer. Code named JEKYLL, this custom silicon solution was designed using ON Semiconductor’s internal 110 nanometer (nm) process technology and manufactured at the company’s Gresham, Oregon, facility. Completion of the JEKYLL project reflects a successful collaboration from feasibility evaluation to delivery of first-time-right prototypes and on-schedule transfer to production for the A350 XWB.

Designed in compliance with the D0-254 aerospace requirements and satisfying Airbus’ demanding reliability and product longevity needs, the ASIC provides optimized performance for the Flight Control Primary Computer on the A350 XWB. ON Semiconductor was chosen for this project for a number of reasons including its expertise in complex ASIC development, its focus on military and avionics, best-in-class quality levels, undisputed long-term product support, and a deep knowledge of D0-254 requirements.

“This successful complex ASIC development is the result of a strong and detailed collaboration between Airbus and ON Semiconductor and represents our commitment to the high reliability aerospace market,” said Vince Hopkin, vice president, Mil/Aero, Digital, Foundry, IPD and Image Sensor products division at ON Semiconductor. ”Our internal 110 nm technology was an excellent fit for the high performance demands of this application and is part of our robust technology solution set from 40 nm to 0.35 µm.”
