Kilopass Invites DAC Attendees to Learn About High Value SOC Design Requirements for One Time Programmable Memory

Craig Rawlings of Kilopass Presents on Security, Configurability, and Manufacturability and Usability

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) -


Kilopass Technology, Inc., a leading CMOS Logic, Non-Volatile Memory (NVM), Intellectual Property (IP) supplier, invites Design Automation Conference (DAC) attendees to stop by its booth at DAC (#754) to learn more about the three most popular applications segments for high value SoC design with one-time programmable (OTP) memory. Craig Rawlngs, Kilopass Director of Marketing, is also speaking at the booth (#2358) on the topic of High Value SoC Design requirements for one-time programmable (OTP) memory.


DAC exhibit hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, June 9 through Wednesday, June 11 and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, June 12. Kilopass is at Booth # 754.

Craig Rawlings will be presenting at the Chip Estimate Booth # 2358 at 11 a.m. on Monday, June 9; 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 10 and 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 11. DAC 2008 will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center, 800 West Katella Avenue, Anaheim, CA.

About OTP Memory Applications for High Value SoC Design

Security Applications. Many new standards such as HDMI, WiMax and BlueRay include security schemes that involve hardware security. OTP memory offers an on-chip repository for storing security data such as keys, and CMOS logic antifuse technology provides a physical layer of security for storing this sensitive information in silicon.

SOC Configurability. The intention of adding configurability is to reduce the number of unique mask sets needed to support a more complex product line or range of similar products. This way, a common platform chip architecture may be used to support multiple market segments with differing standards and requirements. Since a device with OTP memory is not configured until final test and shipment, time-to-market, inventory, and obsolescence risks are minimized.

Manufacturability - Usability. Applications for enhancing manufacturability and product usability include memory repair, pixel repair, ROM patches, digital trim and calibration of analog circuits, self-healing applications, auto-calibration for sensors and imaging applications and custom adaptation of product features. These applications all require the storage of system state information in permanent memory.

What's New

In April, Kilopass announced that it was the first IP supplier to complete qualifications of its high density embedded non-volatile memory technology, called XPM (X-tra Permanent Memory), at 90nm and 80nm. These qualifications support OTP configurations of up to 128 K-bits for CMOS SoC applications. Additionally, in the run up to DAC, XPM has been taped out by multiple customers at 65nm and Kilopass will complete 65nm qualification of its XPM technology in July 2008.
