SureCore Opens Low-Power SRAM IP Customization Service

25 September 2018

SureCore Ltd. announced a low-power, SRAM IP, application-centric, customization service that delivers specific power and performance requirements for wearable, wireless, augmented reality and IoT devices whose requirements go beyond standard low-power memory IP.

SureCore's application-centric, patented and silicon-proven, low-power design techniques prioritize power optimization over speed and area. The new service covers a wide spectrum of memory requirements covering multiple read/write ports, ultra-low leakage retention modes, low dynamic power, near-threshold operation, write masking and BIST/DFT support.

The SureCore service develops memory variants including SRAM and register files based on either standard foundry or custom bit cells. The latter is capable of delivering ultra-low operating voltages, improved leakage characteristics and improved performance.

The application-centric service is rooted in SureCore's innovative design approach and innovative memory architectures that include:

  • Segmented arrays and bit line voltage control that delivers optimal dynamic power and performance.
  • SMART-Assist circuitry for near-threshold operation across process and temperature extremes.
  • Highly granular sleep modes, coupled with independent sub-banks.
  • Custom single and multi-port bit cells.
  • Pipelined read circuitry that meets demanding performance goals.

The new customization service produces results based on a rigorous verification regime, which incorporates statistical, parametric and physical validation, and ensures that SureCore's application-centric memories meet demanding quality requirements. Design flows based on industry-leading, memory characterization tooling delivers multiple PVT corners quickly, accurately and automatically. All industry-standard EDA views are supported.
