Renesas Electronics has developed what it claims as the industry's first 40nm memory blocks for automotive real-time applications.

The developed technology will be used in 40nm embedded flash microcontrollers (MCUs) for automotive applications that are due to sample in the autumn of 2012.

The company has experience in developing flash metal oxide nitride oxide silicon (MONOS) technology with high quality and reliability. Renesas was among the first to launch 90nm automotive flash MCU products in 2007.

Renesas says its flash MONOS technology is scalable while providing both high reliability and high performance at the same time. Evaluation results available from 40nm flash test devices prove that excellent characteristics for three critical parameters (data retention, program/erase cycle endurance and programming time) have been achieved successfully. The 40nm process node enables integration of several functional safety-related and communication interface.

The Renesas 40nm flash memory IP guarantees 20 years of data retention, and can be read from up to 170C junction temperature. Additionally, the code flash supports read speed of 120MHz, and the data flash achieves industry-leading long data-retention period of 20 years even after 125,000 of program/erase cycles.
