Sidense OTP for Low-Power 90nm Implementation Selected by Fujitsu Microelectronics
(Nanowerk News) Sidense, a leading developer of Logic Non-Volatile Memory (LNVM) IP cores, has announced that Sidense's one-time programmable (OTP) memory was selected by Fujitsu Microelectronics Limited for use in ICs fabricated in its low-power 90nm (CS100A-LL) silicon process. These chips using Sidense's SiPROM memory macros are targeted for use in a variety of consumer, industrial and automotive electronics products.
"Use of our memory cores by Fujitsu Microelectronics demonstrates the confidence they have in the security and reliability of Sidense OTP, amongst several other important factors," said Xerxes Wania, President and CEO of Sidense. "We are honored to work with a distinguished integrated device manufacturer such as Fujitsu Microelectronics, whose products are recognized and used worldwide."
Fujitsu Microelectronics and their foundry customers now have the option to use high-density Sidense SiPROM OTP products that are available for licensing immediately. SiPROM OTP products are available in macro configurations from 8 Kbits to 512 Kbits. Please contact Sidense or Fujitsu Microelectronics for further information.
Sidense Corp., the only logic non-volatile memory provider listed on EE Times 60 Emerging Startups list for 2009, provides secure, dense and reliable non-volatile, one-time programmable (OTP) memory IP for use in standard-logic CMOS processes, with no additional masks or process steps required. Sidense's patented one-transistor 1T-Fuse™ architecture (U.S. Patent #7402855 and others) provides the industry's smallest footprint and lowest power Logic Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) solution.
Sidense OTP memory is available at 180nm, 130nm, 110nm, 90nm, 65nm, and 55nm and is scalable to 40nm and below. The IP is available at UMC, TSMC, SMIC, Tower, Fujitsu Microelectronics, IBM and Chartered. Customers are using Sidense OTP for analog trimming, code storage, encryption keys such as HDCP, RFID and Chip ID, medical, automotive, and configurable processors and logic.
