eMemory Launches Ultra-Low Power MTP Silicon IP for IoT Applications
Hsinchu, Taiwan (June 5, 2015) – eMemory Technology announced today its newly developed ultra-low power Multiple-Time Programmable (MTP) silicon IP offers superior features including 3μW low power consumption, 0.7V low operation voltage, over 100,000 times endurance, compact size, and excellent cost advantages. It can replace external EEPROM commonly used in IoT to increase data security, or to help customers switch from expensive embedded EEPROM process to logic process and enhance production cost competitiveness. All of aforementioned make the ultra-low power MTP silicon IP the optimal choice for IoT applications.
eMemory’s MTP silicon IPs support IoT related applications in the five major fields of connectivity, data processing, sensing, power management, and security. They are especially suitable for 2.4GHz Radio Frequency ICs (RFIC ICs), Microcontrollers (MCU), MEMS Controllers, CMOS Image Sensors (CIS), and Power Management ICs (PMIC). The low voltage and low power consumption advantages of the newly developed ultra-low power MTP silicon IPs can also bring added value to ICs widely used in IoT, including Radio Frequency Identification ICs (RFID ICs), Near Field Communication ICs (NFC ICs), and Bluetooth ICs.
eMemory’s ultra-low power MTP silicon IP is fully compatible with standard CMOS logic process and does not require additional masks. It is easily transferable between foundries, and can be integrated into different process platforms to increase production flexibility. The silicon IP has been implemented in 0.11um low-leakage process platform, supporting a wide range of functions including configuration setting, status storage, trimming, and security key storage. Replacing traditional external EEPROM with eMemory’s MTP silicon IPs can prevent data thieving and reduce production costs. The features of low erase/write power consumption can also effectively increasing battery life, making the ultra-low power MTP silicon IP an outstanding choice for boosting customers’ competitiveness in the IoT market.
