Grenoble, France â December 7, 2012. Dolphin Integration announces that the memory architecture RHEA, achieving leakage as low as 0.84 pA/bit at 90 nm uLL embedded flash process has now passed the pre-silicon assessment criteria (Level 1) of TSMCâs stringent IP9000 qualification program.
âWe are happy to announce that the SpRAM RHEA generator is now available free of charge, for all TSMC 90 nm uLL process users. The RHEA architecture not only provides the best combination of density and leakage, but also features the capability to operate down to 1.0 V Â± 10% at the 90 nm uLL process. This is the right SpRAM architecture to meet the challenging needs of MCUs in automotive, consumer and industrial applicationsâ, said Elsa BERNARD-MOULIN, Dolphin Integration Marketing Manager for Libraries.
Dolphin Integration plays up the benefits of moving down to a 90 nm uLL process node:
- Storage capacity of more than 800 kbits/mm2
- Access time of 195 MHz for a 4k x 32 memory cutRHEA
- Equivalentleakage at 90 nm uLL versus 180 nm uLL thanks to source biasing implementation and a mix of HVT and SVT MOS, together with dynamic power consumption divided by 3
The SpRAM RHEA Generator is "Foundry Sponsored".
