Milpitas, CA— July 12, 2019 — CFX, the One-Stop Shop for nonvolatile memory technology and products announced today commercial availability of anti-fuse OTP technology on SMIC 55HV process. “Gate oxide dielectric anti-fuse OTP technology is a game changer for designers of integrated circuits implemented on advanced technology nodes”, states George Wang, CEO of CFX. “The SMIC 55nm High Voltage process combines dense low voltage logic transistors with optimized high voltage transistors. The addition of the CFX OTP technology makes the SMIC 55HV process the ideal platform for complex mixed signal devices such as display drivers, image sensors and PMICs.”
OTP Implemented on Standard CMOS Process
CFX’s Anti-fuse technology uses the thin gate oxide of advanced CMOS logic processes as the dielectric. As gate oxide thicknesses scale with technology geometries, the programming voltage becomes lower and allows the integration of all programming circuitry in the same OTP block. The result is a dense, reliable OTP memory technology without any changes to the standard CMOS process.
Silicon Proven Technology
The first design using the CFX OTP on the SMIC 55 HV has been fabricated and the OTP IP block has been tested and verified. A test report for the OTP memory is available. Volume production and qualification will complete in late 2019. Customers interested in using the CFX OTP IP should contact CFX directly.
