Mie Fujitsu and Kilopass Sign Agreement for OTP Projects

17 April 2016

Pure-play foundry Mie Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited (MIFS) and non-volatile memory intellectual property (IP) vendor Kilopass Technology Inc. have signed an agreement to develop one-time programmable (OTP) projects for the Internet of Things (IoT) and automotive segments.

Under terms of the agreement, Kilopass will port its OTP non-volatile memory IP to MIFS’ 40 nanometer low-power process technology. MIFS is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited that is a pure-play foundry with 300mm wafer manufacturing facilities on a 40LP CMOS logic process. Other process technologies include 55nm, 65nm and 90nm CMOS processes.

With Kilopass’s IP, foundry customers will be able to use the technology for battery-powered apps, both rechargeable and non-rechargeable, for the IoT and automotive applications. Kilopass says its non-volatile memory IP offers fast access time, is more competitive than eFlash and is cost effective because it does not require special masks for overlay tolerance or process control.

Mie Fujitsu says Kilopass is developing a roadmap for OTP products that aligns with MIFS on its own upcoming projects beginning with the 40nm process node for infotainment communications.
