Sidense to Present at DesignCon in Silicon Valley

CTO Wlodek Kurjanowicz to Present a Technical Paper on "Evaluating Embedded Non-Volatile Memory for 65nm and Beyond"

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - January 28, 2008) - Sidense, a leading developer of Logic Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) IP cores, will be presenting a key technical paper at DesignCon in Santa Clara, California on February 6. The paper will review the history of antifuse technology in silicon products and describe in detail one type of antifuse based on non-reversible oxide breakdown. The presentation will conclude by comparing some key characteristics of different oxide-breakdown memory storage technologies, along with more traditional embedded non-volatile (NVM) technologies, for implementation at the 65nm process node and beyond.
