Taiwan leadframe makers enjoy brisk orders for automotive power modules

Taiwan-based leadframe makers Jih Lin Technological know-how and Shuen Der Field (SDI) have noticed apparent buy visibility via the close of 2023, buoyed by strong demand for automotive ability modules from IDMs, according to marketplace sources.

IDMs which includes Infineon, NXP Semiconductors and STMicroelectronics have outsourced much more of their generation for automotive MCUs to foundries and backend residences. As for automotive ability modules, all those IDMs outsource only the backend portion to OSATs like ASE Technological innovation, the resources reported.

Jih Lin and SDI have minimize into the supply chain of the world’s key automotive IC IDMs by giving packaging leadframes for their custom electric power modules, the sources indicated.

Jih Lin has liked strong leadframe need for automotive electric power devices, with purchase visibility extended to conclusion-2023, said firm chairman SY Tsai on the sideline of a June 21 shareholders assembly.
