Kilopass Technology Inc., a start-up company developing embedded memory intellectual property, has signed up a Taiwanese SoC design company called Global UniChip Corp., to make use of its embedded nonvolatile memory called XPM.

Global UniChip follows Fulhua Microelectronics Corp. in licensing XPM. The Fulhua deal was announced in February 2004.

The technology is intended as a replacement for ROM and EPROM. It allows post-manufacture programming of non-volatile memory implemented in standard logic CMOS processes. According to the company's website the memory is available for manufacturing processes from 0.13?m up to 0.35?m although the company did not disclose particular processes or manufacturers for which XPM is proven in silicon at the time this story was posted.

"UniChip has a strong team of industry veterans with the necessary experience and capabilities customers seek in SoC design service providers. They will help accelerate the adoption of our XPM technology into designs created for high volume products," said Jack Peng, founder, president and CEO of Kilopass, in a statement.

Kilopass was selected as one of Silicon Strategies' 60 emerging start-ups in version 1.0 of the list in April 2004.
