Update: Synopsys Expands DesignWare IP Portfolio with Acquisition of Kilopass Technology (Jan. 10, 2018)
Santa Clara, CA, and Seoul, Korea -- October 8, 2008 -- Kilopass Technology, Inc., a leading provider of semiconductor non-volatile memory (NVM) intellectual property (IP), and Dongbu HiTek today announced that silicon verification and early life testing for Kilopass’ extra-permanent memory or XPM technology for the Dongbu HiTek 0.18um process technology Generic process node has been completed and that XPM is now available for customers’ use.
”With Kilopass’ embedded non-volatile memory solution, Dongbu customers have access to high density permanent memory at a very low total cost of ownership compared with other alternatives”, said Jae Song, EVP of Marketing at Dongbu HiTek.“Dongbu chose XPM due to its smaller die area, high reliability and yield. XPM does not require wafer bake and supports in-system programming with no process or mask modifications to the Dongbu process which fits well with our value proposition to customers.”
Earlier this year, Kilopass and Dongbu HiTek announced their collaboration and plans to deliver embedded NVM XPM technology for 0.18um and 0.13um process nodes. Contact Kilopass for 0.13um product availability.
Kilopass extra-permanent memory or XPM technology is being used by over 50 companies worldwide in over 30 million semiconductor devices. The XPM memory arrays are used for the storage of firmware, security codes, trim and calibration data and other application critical information.
