TowerJazz and Triune Systems Announce Neo-Iso™ Products Ramping to Mass Production
|By Business Wire
|September 2, 2014 04:00 AM EDT
the global specialty foundry leader, and Triune
Systems LLC, a mixed signal and power management IC provider, today
announced that Triune has developed a proprietary isolated power and
data technology using the TowerJazz TS18PM process on its state of the
art 0.18um based power management platform. This innovative technology
is showcased in Triune’s Neo-Iso™ products, two isolated load switches
currently ramping to volume production; TS13001 and TS13101. According
to a report published by Transparency Market Research, the home
automation market is expected to reach $16.4 billion by 2019, growing at
a CAGR of 24.6% from 2014 to 2019.
Triune’s TS13001 and TS13101 are galvanically isolated load switches
that replace mechanical relays in HVAC, home automation, and industrial
control systems. The products are low-profile switches with low Rdson,
have current limit and fault protection circuitry, and are easily
controlled through a simple microcontroller interface. The level of
galvanic isolation can be scaled from 100V to 10kV, based on the needs
of the system. Device options include both a non-latching TS13001 and
latching TS13101 device for replacing most relay applications. These
products enable next generation home automation systems that are thin,
compact, portable and reliable.
“We developed this unique and innovative isolated technology with
TowerJazz because they offered the best process for our needs,” said
Ross Teggatz, President of Triune Systems. “Our Neo-Iso™ technology
further leverages TowerJazz’s processes to provide truly unique
solutions that can drive exciting and differentiated home automation
applications, and we look forward to developing several new products
based on this technology.”
"Triune has been a strong partner and we are excited to see innovative
products such as the Neo-Iso™ isolated load switches introduced on our
power management platform," said Dr. Marco Racanelli, Senior Vice
President of Power Business Group, TowerJazz. “Working with customers
like Triune that push performance and innovation boundaries is what
helps us bring to market best-in-class process technology. Our latest
0.18um power management platform combines some of the industry's lowest
on-resistance high voltage devices, with 0.18um digital capability and
non-volatile memory, serving the consumer, industrial, and automotive

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Chris Webber, security strateg...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.
