“STMicroelectronics’ long history as a supplier to the world’s tier 1 automotive manufacturers demands a robust supply chain of semiconductor IP. Any IP suppler we use to construct our chips must have a solid track record of delivering reliable world class product,” said Marco Monti, Automotive and Discrete Group Executive Vice President and General Manager. “Kilopass has the right product at the process node we needed.”

Nuvoton_logo“Kilopass provides Nuvoton fundamental memory IP that we use in our microcontroller designs for storing content that must be secure or that calibrates elements of our design or customizes our applications,” said Erez Naory, VP Client IC products. “We continue to advance our product research and development and focus on the three major technologies of low power consumption, analog IC and security. We enter specific applications through product innovation and advancement in the technology of the production process. Having a IP supplier such as Kilopass helps us achieve these ends.”

CISTA_logoWilson Du, CEO and President of Cista System Corp. stated, “we needed a reliable intellectual property vendor of OTP NVM for the SMIC 130nm BIS process node. The low leakage SMIC process uses three aluminum metal layers for reduced cost and supports pixel sizes down to 1.4-micron for implementing our 8MP resolution CIS. We chose Kilopass because of its availability on the SMIC process and their reputation as a vendor with a breadth of offerings on the major foundries worldwide.

“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.”

“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.”

“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
