eMemory and Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. have revealed that they plan to expand the deployment of their partnership on SMIC's embedded non-volatile memory (eNVM) platform development. The platform covers both One Time Programmable (OTP) and Multiple Times Programmable (MTP) eNVM technologies such as NeoBit, NeoFuse, NeoEE and NeoMTP, across technology nodes ranging from 0.35um to 40nm, the companies indicated.

eMemory and SMIC have been collaborating since 2004. SMIC's processes that apply eMemory's eNVM solutions include logic, HV, analog and BCD processes; with applications ranging from digital set-top box (STB), multimedia players, power management IC, microcontrollers, Bluetooth controller IC and RFID IC.

The two companies recently teamed up to provide an OTP solution based on SMIC's 0.18um and 0.13um processes that claim to offer customers high reliability and cost effective power management solutions. These solutions can benefit analog and power management clients to gain tactical advantages for serving the vast smartphone, tablet and the emerging wearable devices market.

On the other hand, eMemory and SMIC are also actively developing eNVM solutions for applications that require high endurances and security features. The offered solution is capable of meeting a myriad of client requirements including low cost, superior performance and reliability. eMemory and SMIC expect continued success as the consumer electronics market in China flourishes.
