Impinj debuts 'few-time' non-volatile memory IP

Seeking to provide more options for IC designers, Impinj Inc. has introduced what the company calls a ''few-time'' programmable logic non-volatile memory solution.

The product, dubbed Aeon/FTP, is a family of logic non-volatile memory intellectual property (IP) solutions. Aimed at applications that require up to 100 write-erase cycles, Aeon/FTP is said to be a hybrid between a one-time and a multiple-time programmable memory IP.

Applications include wireless networking, digital content protection and the precision analog markets. ''For a wide range of applications, traditional one-time programmable memories are too restrictive, and multiple-time programmable memories are too costly,'' said Larry Morrell, vice president and general manager of IP products at Impinj.

''The Aeon/FTP product exactly meets the needs of designers looking for the flexibility of MTP but who do not need thousands of write-erase cycles,'' he said.

Supporting bit counts from 64bits up to 16Kbits, the IP features a 100 write-erase cycle endurance, a 10-year data retention at 125C and is compatibility with standard logic CMOS with no extra masks or processing steps.

It is available at TSMC's 130nm, 90nm, and 65nm process nodes.
