July 24, 2012 -- eMemory Technology, Inc. announced today that its embedded Multiple Times Programmable (MTP) memory silicon IP, NeoEE, has already passed electrical verification on a leading wafer fab's 65-nm process platform, and is expected to complete reliability verification by the end of 2012.
eMemory's 0.18-Ám, 0.16-Ám, and 0.11-Ám NeoEE technology platforms have already passed verification at the primary wafer fabs of the Asia region, and will provide a more comprehensive layout of MTP eNVM silicon IPs with cost advantages that are expected to find application in SOC-related products such as near field communication (NFC), 2.4-GHz RFICs, RFID Tags, and Bluetooth controllers.
NeoEE is an embedded, non-volatile, high read-write-cycle memory technology. NeoEE can be written or erased up to 10,000 to 100,000 times, and due to its complete compatibility with current logic processes, no extra masks are needed to integrate NeoEE into different types of process platforms, which translates into an extremely low cost for adoption by semiconductor foundries. NeoEE also has distinct advantages of low power consumption and competitive silicon IP layout area.
NeoEE can provide functional blocks in two modes: EEPROM architecture or Flash architecture, and its primary function is application to consumer electronics, such as in storing pairing passwords needed by ICs, system execution-related settings data, and use status, etc. NeoEE is a perfect match for consumer electronics products needing embedded mid- to low-capacity storage with high reliability.
eMemory's silicon IP has already passed total output of 4 million customer wafers. With manufacturing platforms at 16 wafer fabs worldwide, eMemory's eNVM silicon IP can be applied in over 400 types of electronic products, including consumer electronics, as well as industrial and automotive applications. Looking forward, eMemory will provide comprehensive eNVM technology and platform layouts, including advanced process OTP and high-capacity MTP eNVM, so that eMemory eNVM solutions can be built into all kinds of manufacturing platforms to provide customers of different fields with comprehensive low-level to high-level product lines.
