Kilopass Technology Inc., a provider of semiconductor non-volatile memory (NVM) IP for standard CMOS logic, has signed a foundry technology agreement with Tower Semiconductor Ltd. Kilopass' XPM technology enables SoC designers to use low-cost non-volatile code and data storage, while shortening an SoC's time-to-market. Based on Tower's 0.18?m CMOS process technology, Kilopass' embedded non-volatile XPM memory technology is designed to enhance manufacturability through 100 percent compliance with Tower's standard CMOS rules.

Ishai Naveh, VP of non-volatile memory marketing, Tower Semiconductor, said, "The addition of this NVM capability is vital for Tower's customers in the broad consumer, security, and communications markets. By combining Kilopass' embedded non-volatile memory IP with Tower's 0.18?m process technology, we've been able to provide our customers with the increased functionality and security that their applications require. This was achieved with no additional masking steps, low power consumption, and shortened time-to-market."

Charles Ng, VP of sales and marketing, Kilopass, added, "By leveraging Tower's advanced 0.18?m process platform with our XPM technology, we can deliver the cost-effective, high-density non-volatile storage requirements that customers need to build their next-generation designs."
