Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing Infineon Technologies announces an agreement with Infineon Technologies to manufacture power MOSFET's. The agreement includes Infineon's OptiMOS technology, with potential extension to its CoolMOS technology. These devices are employed in a variety of computer, communications, consumer, industrial and automotive applications, where fast switching of high voltage or high current is required. As part of its capacity extension plans, Infineon will initially transfer its OptiMOS technology process to Fab 2, where it is scheduled to be qualified by the end of 2003. Volume production is scheduled to ramp in 2004. As part of the agreement, Chartered will also supply non-OptiMOS technologies to Infineon. Source: '
