Kilopass Memory IP Can Now Be Searched and Explored at

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 1, 2007 -- Kilopass™ Technology Inc. and Chip Estimate Corporation announced today that Kilopass has joined the Chip Estimate Prime Intellectual Property (IP) Partner program. As a Prime IP Partner, Kilopass is enabling centralized access to information about the company's embedded Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) IP at™. was launched in 2005 to provide comprehensive chip planning capabilities to the electronics and semiconductor communities. In addition to the comprehensive IP catalog, designers can use the InCyte software available through the website to plan their next chips. Kilopass' XPM™ memory IP addresses consumer, military, enterprise, mobile and security applications.

Kilopass' embedded NVM IP supports a broad range of memory sizes for most SOC applications including chip ID, encryption keys, access and authentication codes, Digital Rights Management (DRM), High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) keys, analog trim and calibration, memory and pixel repair, firmware and/or hardware configuration.

"The combination of centralized access to our XPM memory IP and Chip Estimate's chip planning tools for IP exploration helps our customers find the best configurations for their applications," said Craig Rawlings, Director of Marketing at Kilopass.

"This newly added IP from Kilopass enhances the options SoC design teams can consider when seeking Non-Volatile Memory IP for their applications," commented Sean O'Kane, Director of Partner Alliances for Chip Estimate. "XPM memory IP extends our IP portfolio and better serves designers looking for innovative embedded memory technology."
