Magnachip adds 30V option to its 0.18um EEPROM

Posted: 10 May 2013 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share


Magnachip Semiconductor has recently broadened its line-up of high voltage options for its 0.18um embedded EEPROM process technology. The company successfully integrated a 30V option for its 0.18um embedded EEPROM technology. This additional high voltage option provides increased noise immunity by improving the signal-to-noise ratio characteristics of devices, a critical issue in touch sensing IC performance. This is especially true in applications such as smartphones, tablet PCs, notebooks, and smart TVs.

The latest trend in smartphone and tablet PC touch sensing applications has been a move towards thinner yet larger designs. This trend often makes the electronic circuitry more susceptible to internal and external electrical noise. The various sources of noise, particularly in mobile devices, include the close proximity of various semiconductor components within the system, battery chargers and even external factors such as temperature and humidity. Unwanted electrical noise can generate spurious signals creating false touches in the sensing circuitry.

MagnaChip's process technology enhances the functionality and performance of these newer IC designs by improving their signal-to-noise characteristics. MagnaChip's newly developed 30V process is ideally suited for the larger screen mobile applications that are now being introduced. This new process was developed utilising a lateral double-diffused MOS structure with sustained performance up to 30V.
