Hsinchu, Taiwan (July 31, 2018) –eMemory today announced its reprogrammable eNVM IP NeoMTP is qualified and now available for TowerJazz 0.18um BCD process, amid an increasing demand for the cost-effective memory solution from wireless charging and USB Type C customers.
Aside from the NeoMTP collaboration, eMemory will soon work with TowerJazz to develop its flagship one-time programmable memory IP NeoBit on TowerJazz 65nm 5V RF CMOS platform, targeting applications including RF and 5G.
eMemory, the leading IP provider of eNVM (embedded Non-volatile Memory) for power management applications, has been successfully working with worldwide foundries to deploy its eNVM solutions on BCD/HV process technologies tailored for emerging power management applications.
NeoMTP on TowerJazz 0.18um 1.8V/5V BCD process features a wide operating voltage range, autograde temperature compliance and over 10-year data retention with 1,000 write cycles. These features enable designers to meet high temperature and endurance requirements of automotive applications.
“eMemory has always been the No.1 choice in the power management space, and we are in the best position to address the needs of the wireless charging and USB C designers.” said Michael Ho, Vice President of Business Development at eMemory. “NeoMTP on TowerJazz BCD platform, a specialty process for complex power management ICs, is bringing forward some unique features that give the designers an edge in those fast-growing markets.”
NeoMTP provides the reprogrammable capability for changes of parameters in the wireless charger, such as power-on/off sequence, output current, thermal regulation etc. It also enables frequent firmware and feature updates in the USB Type-C, allowing the designers to extend product lifecycles and address varying needs of different application markets.
eMemory’s NeoMTP is the most cost-effective reprogrammable memory technology in the industry. The solution provides the high endurance required for today’s most complex applications, while at a far lower cost than embedded Flash. It is also increasingly used to replace external EEPROM on performance and security concerns.
The IP block on TowerJazz BCD platform supports 1,000 write cycles with an automotive Grade0 temperature range of -40°C ~ 150°C. The memory solution guarantees over 10-year data retention at 125°C.
The IP also features a wide operating voltage range from 2.6V to 5.5V, as well as high-speed and low-power Read.
eMemory (TPEX:3529) is a semiconductor IP provider specialized in embedded hard IP cores. Ranked as the world’s 7th largest silicon IP provider, eMemory has delivered best-in-class IP designs to over 1,300 foundries, IDMs and fabless companies globally since its establishment in 2000. The company has received TSMC’s “Best IP Partner Award” since its inception in 2010.
As a global leader in the eNVM (embedded Non-volatile Memory) market, eMemory provides patented eNVM solutions with the industry’s most comprehensive process technology coverage. The company also pioneers in providing the security IP core based on silicon biometrics.
eMemory’s eNVM IP offerings include one-time programmable memories (NeoBit/NeoFuse) and multi-time programmable memories (NeoMTP/NeoFlash/NeoEE). NeoPUF is the company’s proprietary security IP core.
