New 0.13-Micron Memory Cores Developed for Mobile and Industrial Applications

14 May 2018

MagnaChip Semiconductor Corp. and Yield Microelectronics Corp. (YMC) have jointly developed a 0.13-micron multiple-time programmable intellectual property (MTP-IP) memory core targeted at mobile and industrial applications.

The non-volatile memory core is coupled with MagnaChip’s 0.13 micron mixed signal and BCD technologies for global foundry customers with system-on-chip performance for embedded microcontrollers capable of being programmed one thousand times.

The companies have collaborated for previous versions of the MTP memory core at the 0.35 and 0.18 micron tech nodes and mass-produced a variety of products including microcontrollers and touch and power management ICs.

The companies said the new version offers better performance compared with the previous version and the companies plan to expand this newly developed IP portfolio to meet automotive grade-1 requirements, mobile device specifications and other applications.
