SMIC, eMemory, Expand Non-Volatile Memory Collaboration

02 January 2014

eMemory Technology Inc. (Hsinchu, Taiwan), a developer of non-volatile memory for inclusion CMOS logic ICs, has signed up a deal to expand cooperation with China foundry Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC) to 180 and 130nm CMOS nodes.

As a result SMIC (Shanghai, China) includes one-time and multi-time programmable IP from eMemory in its eNVM offering including: NeoBit, NeoFuse, NeoEE and NeoMTP across technology nodes ranging from 0.35-micron to 40nm.

SMIC's processes that apply eMemory's eNVM solutions include logic, high voltage, analog, and BCD processes. The introduction of these non-volatile memories on the 180nm and 130nm nodes can benefit developers of analog and power management ICs to better serve customers in the smartphones, tablet computer and wearable equipment markets, said eMemory.

eMemory President Rick Shen commented, "Mainland China, as one of our major target markets, has the greatest purchasing power in the world for consumer electronics," said Rick Shen, president of eMemory, in a statement. "eMemory and SMIC will continue to broaden the collaboration scope to establish comprehensive eNVM technology and silicon IP product portfolios and to provide customers with more competitive process platforms."
