June 28, 2011 -- Kilopass Technology, Inc. and the Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC) today announced the next phase of their embedded NVM IP partnership. Kilopass is expanding its one-time programmable (OTP) NVM product offering to SMICs 55-nm logic CMOS process. Kilopass has already successfully taped out in SMIC's 65-nm process.

In partnership since 2005, Kilopass and SMIC began with the development of Kilopass OTP NVM on SMIC's 180-nm and proceeded on with SMIC's 130-nm and 90-nm logic CMOS processes. The collaboration expanded to include 65nm and now continues with the addition of the 55-nm node.

SMIC's customers with applications requiring embedded NVM for storing mixed-signal trim data, boot code, and security key for multimedia processors, MCUs, and RFID ICs, have benefitted from having Kilopass' secure, embedded, OTP, NVM solution for their system-on-chip (SOC) designs.

"Kilopass success taping out its OTP NVM IP on our 65-nm logic CMOS process nodes validates SMIC's position as an advanced technology provider, and demonstrates SMIC's commitment to bringing our customers world-class solutions with the highest reliability, stability and cost-effectiveness," said Chris Chi, Senior Vice President and Chief Business Officer of SMIC.

About Kilopass 2T antifuse technology

Built using standard CMOS logic, without changes to masks, manufacturing steps, or equipment used, Kilopass patented 2T antifuse technology provides an OTP NVM solution for SOC applications demanding embedded memory. Scaling from 180nm to 28nm, Kilopass 2T antifuse technology achieves a 20X reduction in cell size, making it very compact in large SOC designs. Kilopass 2T antifuse technology has also been qualified through a stringent high temperature operating life (HTOL) and high temperature storage life (HTSL) standard in process nodes including 40nm.


Kilopass OTP NVM memory IP is now available at SMIC in 180-nm, 130-nm, 90-nm, 65-nm and 55-nm processes.
