“We are pleased to collaborate with Kilopass to support our customers’ IP needs in 40/45nm. Kilopass delivers timely support to our wireless mobile and set-top box customers who are migrating to 40nm technology for high performance, lower power and higher integration.”

                                        —Dan Kochpatcharin, Deputy Director of IP Portfolio Marketing at TSMC


“Access to proven IP is extremely important as the industry moves to more advanced technologies and higher levels of SoC integration for our foundry customers. Our strategy is to build a comprehensive partner ecosystem that supports the growing need for optimized SoC solutions. This partnership with Kilopass is one such effort. Kilopass offers critical NVM IP required in a wide spectrum of applications.”

                                        —Jay Min, vice president, Samsung Electronics’ Foundry business


“Non-volatile memory is a very useful capability in several of our consumer and high performance mixed signal devices. Kilopass’ XPM™ has delivered an area-effective, high-yield solution.”

–Kevin Kattmann, product line director, High-Speed Converters, Analog Devices


“Controlling costs has always been a critical requirement for ESS; with each generation of products, the consumer market requires smaller and less expensive devices with more features. When we first started using Kilopass’ products three years ago, we were replacing EPROMS used to store HDCP keys. Kilopass’ technology allowed us to reduce the board form factor and reduce the total system cost by decreasing the BOM. Now,                                              Kilopass’ products have provided us with a migration path to second source foundries,                                              enabling lower cost solutions and guaranteed availability.”

                                      –Robert Blair, President and CEO of ESS Technology


“We chose Kilopass’ non-volatile memory technology for our chip designs because this important memory IP fulfilled a critical requirement of our customers’ applications. As a leading SoC design foundry, we need IP and design software partners that understand the short development time requirements of SoC chips.”

–Jim Lai, COO and President of Global UniChip Corp


“With Kilopass’ embedded non-volatile memory solution, Dongbu customers have access to high density permanent memory at a very low total cost of ownership compared with other alternatives. Dongbu chose XPM due to its smaller die area, high reliability and yield. XPM does not require wafer bake and supports in-system programming with no process or mask modifications to the Dongbu process which fits                                               well with our value proposition to customers.”

                                      –Jae Song, EVP of Marketing at Dongbu HiTek


“The embedded one-time programmable NVM technology from Kilopass Technology is mature, proven and eliminates risk. The best part is that, with it, we minimized the chip size. Its cost and performance also beat the alternative solutions we considered.”

— W.K. Chen, VP of R&D, Sunplus


“Device manufacturers, OEM, ODM and EMS partners of Data I/O will use and benefit from Kilopass’ XPM technology. At the same time this partnership introduces Data I/O to new customers and applications, it also benefits Kilopass customers by reducing programming costs and manufacturing risks through access to Data I/O’s global support team.”
