SMIC, eMemory extend collaboration to 28nm
Taiwan-based eMemory Technology, a provider of embedded non-volatile memory (eNVM) IP, has announced its partnership with China-based foundry chipmaker Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMIC) covers silicon from 0.35-micron to 28nm processes.
eMemory’s one-time-programmable (OTP) and multiple-time-programmable (MTP) eNVM technologies – NeoBit, NeoFuse, NeoEE and NeoMTP – have been widely deployed in SMIC’s logic, HV, analog and BCD processes ranging from 0.35-micron to 28nm, the IP provider indicated. The tie-up between eMemory and SMIC has already provided cost-effective solutions for applications including microcontrollers (MCU), power management ICs (PMIC), multimedia players, digital TVs and digital set-top boxes (STB).
Besides, eMemory and SMIC have recently expanded their offerings to include solutions for ultra-low power MCUs, analog ICs, RFID ICs and other IoT-related solutions, while strengthening cooperation on SMIC’s Poly Contact for Ultra Low Leakage (SPOCULL), ultra-low power (ULP), and eFlash processes, the Taiwan-based firm said.
In addition, eMemory is working with other China-based foundries including Hua Hong Semiconductor and Shanghai Huali Microelectronics (HLMC).
