MagnaChip and ELAN Announce Production Ramp of 0.18um EEPROM Products for TouchPad Applications

SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., Feb. 13, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — �MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation ("MagnaChip") (NYSE: MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products, and ELAN Microelectronics ("ELAN"), a leading fabless provider of touch solutions for mobile phone and PC applications, today announced that they have begun to ramp production of ELAN's EEPROM touchpad products utilizing MagnaChip's advanced 0.18um manufacturing process technology.

MagnaChip's 0.18um EEPROM process features a patented side-wall selective transistor cell (SSTC) structure driving multiple voltage levels from 1.8V, 1.8V+3.3V and 1.8V+5.0V. This advanced manufacturing process developed by MagnaChip provides a significantly reduced cell size that translates into a very cost-effective NVM technology solution with enhanced performance for foundry partners such as ELAN.

Namkyu Park, Senior Vice President of Marketing for MagnaChip's foundry division commented, "We are very pleased to announce MagnaChip's continued partnership with ELAN and the ramp of their touchpad products utilizing our advanced 0.18um EEPROM process technology. This process is ideally suited for mobile as well as PC applications such as notebooks and ultrabooks. We will continue to develop high-performance and cost-effective embedded EEPROM technology solutions that meet the growing needs of our foundry customers."
