MPS signs agreement with Vanguard International
Foundry agreement will secure semiconductor supply
Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) and the foundry Vanguard International Semiconductor(VIS) have entered into an agreement to produce power semiconductors. MPS will use VIS’s 8-inch (200mm) wafer fabrication capabilities in its Singapore and Taiwan manufacturing facilities.
To secure semiconductor supplies for the long term, MPS is deepening partnerships with suppliers at key points in the supply chain. The products manufactured at VIS will meet the growing demand for power devices in data centres, electric vehicles, solar inverters, robotics, and space systems.
“We are excited to partner with VIS to take advantage of their advanced and highly reliable platform to expand our capacity and meet our growing customers’ demands,” said Deming Xiao, SVP of Operations for MPS. “VIS’s leading specialty IC manufacturing expertise, combined with MPS’s product design capability, will deliver greater energy efficiency to new markets and applications, contributing to environmental sustainability.”
This agreement is a model of how MPS will augment its existing supplier relationships in Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, and China by building more secure and resilient supply-chain partnerships while accelerating the development of next-generation technological innovation.
