Hermitage, PA, February 2, 2011--Novocell Semiconductor, Inc., a leading supplier of non-volatile memory intellectual property (IP), today announces the release of NovoBlox Nano, a new, enhanced high density version of Novocell’s reliability leading NovoBlox OTP. NovoBlox Nano OTP is available in densities ranging from 8K to 256K bits. Compared to the original NovoBlox memories, the Nano architecture minimizes the real estate needed on chip by an average of 70%--leading to one of the industry’s densest designs.
Novocell’s NovoBlox technology is based on a unique, patented SmartBit cell that uses dynamic programming and sensing to ensure hard breakdown of the antifuse, guaranteeing programming and eliminating tail bits. The Nano technology allows the area previously needed to accommodate an 8K block to accommodate a 64K block.
