Update: Aplus Flash Technology is no more in business
San Jose , CA -- June 8, 2006
- Aplus Flash Technology, a privately-held, fabless provider of nonvolatile memory (NVM) products and customized NVM IP, today announced that Datang Microelectronics Technology Co., Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Datang Telecom Technology, and one of the largest telecommunications equipment manufacturers in China, has successfully field tested its IC telephone card, which uses Aplus' EEPROM IP as its memory core.
"Datang's telephone card project success is significant for Aplus due to the large and growing telephone card market in China, where Datang is a large supplier, selling millions of cards per year," said Dr. Henry Ma, Vice President of Business Development and the head of Aplus' Shanghai office. "With the success of the Datang project, Aplus has demonstrated its technology leadership with its EEPROM IP, which has been proven to be the cost-effective and high performance EEPROM IP of choice in the China market."
Aplus' EEPROM IP is offered in standard 1KB to high-density 64KB blocks, as well as customized blocks for various communication, smart card and RFID applications. Offering high yields of over 97% on its low-density blocks, a wide operating range of 1.8V to 6.0V, and P/E endurance cycles of over 1 million, Aplus' EEPROM IP is silicon proven and available in a traditional 0.35um, 2-Tr 2P2M Flotox process technology at Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC), a pure-play foundry in China. Its small die sizes and flexibility make it most suitable for smart card and communication applications that require data alteration down to a byte-level.About Aplus Flash Technology:
