More than 10 billion units shipped with Kilopass’ embedded non-volatile memory (NVM) IP have shipped in mobile, consumer, analog/mixed-signal, industrial, and automotive semiconductor products.Kilopass’ NVM technology has achieved broad adoption due to the measurable benefits it provides more than 170 customers. These customers gain greater manufacturing flexibility, improved performance and reduced BOM costs by replacing external EEPROM or NOR flash with Kilopass’ NVM for high capacity one-time programmable (OTP) NVM applications. They achieve higher gross margins through improved yields by using Kilopass’ XPM memory IP for trimming an analog IC, such as a clock chip.
Many consumer electronics applications have taken advantage of Kilopass’s embedded NVM technology, such as set top boxes, multimedia SoCs, application processors, gaming, GPS, and storage. High density and standard logic CMOS processing helps lower overall system cost while still retaining design flexibility.
Kilopass embedded non-volatile memory IP can be found in the CMOS image sensor, baseband processor, RF transceiver, power amplifier, display, and power management chip sets. Embedded logic NVM helps mobile handset chip makers meet the demands for new features and improved form factor.
Analog and mixed signal applications such as amplifiers, ADCs/DACs, audio/display drivers, PMUs, and telecommunications have used Kilopass non-volatile memory IP for trimming and configuration. Because it is field-programmable and has smaller area our memory IP enables high performance and new features.
Sensors, actuators, motor control, video surveillance, environmental control, RFID, M2M and high-speed framers/wrappers are just some of the industrial applications Kilopass antifuse NVM has been designed in. High reliability and best-in-class security helps our customers differentiate.
Automotive applications include control systems, DSPs, in-car communications, and infotainment systems. Reliability is a key concern for this market, which makes Kilopass’ XPM and Gusto IP the ideal memory solution.
