Impinj Inc. and UMC announced a strategic partnership to deliver Impinj's AEON family of embedded nonvolatile memory (NVM) cores for UMC's 0.18?m and 0.13?m CMOS technologies.

The AEON NVM cores require no additional masks or processing steps for seamless integration into UMC's processes, resulting in shortened time-to-market for customers incorporating AEON memory into their SoC designs. By offering Impinj's AEON product family with UMC's standard logic CMOS processing, fabless semiconductor companies will benefit from silicon IP that can be easily integrated into their designs using UMC's process technologies.

"As the demand for embedded NVM continues to increase, we are pleased to partner with a foundry such as UMC," said Larry Morrell, VP of IP products, Impinj. "By offering our IP on UMC's industry leading processes we provide semiconductor designers access to the nonvolatile memory they need in the process technology they want."

Impinj and UMC will jointly qualify AEON/MTP and AEON/HV products in UMC's 0.18?m and 0.13?m technology nodes. The products provide true multiple-times programmable NVM with up to 100,000 programming cycles, support for high voltage I/O, 10-year retention, and bit-counts from 8 bits up to 8,000 bits.
