HSINCHU, Taiwan and SEOUL, Korea -- Feb. 18, 2008 -- eMemory Technology Inc., a world renowned provider of logic embedded non-volatile memory (NVM) intellectual property (IP), today announced that it has signed an agreement to collaborate with MagnaChip Semiconductor Ltd., a leading Asia- based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products for high volume consumer applications, in the development of embedded NVM technology and the qualification of an 0.18um One Time Programmable (OTP) macro using both the CMOS logic and high-voltage processes.
eMemory's OTP technology can be applied in analog, LCD driver, and network ICs for the purpose of data storage, code programming, and trimming. The technology does not require any additional mask or process steps.
"We are pleased to announce that eMemory has become one of our IP alliance program partners. We believe eMemory's leading edge technologies, combined with MagnaChip's reliable, advanced manufacturing capabilities, will allow us to provide robust and cost-effective manufacturing solutions, Specifically, the alliance will permit us to better serve the increasing demand for compact size and the need for flexibility in high-voltage products," said Channy Lee, Executive Vice President and General Manager of MagnaChip's Semiconductor Manufacturing Service Division.
"As the demand for embedded NVM continues to expand, we are pleased to partner with a world leading foundry such as MagnaChip," stated Charles Hsu, President of eMemory. "MagnaChip offers fully qualified 0.18um logic processes for a variety of applications. We will work with MagnaChip to provide OTP solutions targeted at high growth analog, LCD driver and personal mobile applications."
