Attopsemi's I-fuse™ provides small size, high reliability, low program voltage/current, low power and wide temperature to enable GLOBALFOUNDRIES 22nm FDX® for automotive and IoT applications.
Santa Clara, California --- November 19, 2018 – Attopsemi Technology, an OTP IP provider, announced today that the company’s 256Kb OTP (One-Time Programmable) IP passed 250°C and 1,000 hours wafer-level burn-in studies. When programming I-fuse™ within the specifications, no defect was found in tens of millions I-fuses™ after several stress conditions. Moreover, the post-stressed I-fuse™ resistance has very minor changes.
“Other than the advanced features of small size and low program voltage/current, we showed the world that I-fuse™ can sustain 250°C 1,000hrs and still maintain ultra-high reliability,” said Shine Chung, Chairman of Attopsemi. “I am thankful for GF’s superior CMOS process to demonstrate our I-fuse™ can achieve the performance of great merit,” added by Shine.
“We sincerely appreciate all the supports from GF in developing our proprietary I-fuse™ OTP technology on 22FDX®,” said Shine Chung. “After many years of dedicated works and collaboration with foundries and customers worldwide, our I-fuse™ technology has finally been demonstrated at elevated temperature. We have proven that I-fuse™ can ensure high reliability with smaller size by using a fraction of program current. With our superior OTP IP, we expect to bring substantial benefits to all semiconductor communities.”
