An expanded line of multiple-time programmable intellectual property (MTP-IP) devices promises to simplify the engineering process. The 0.18m MTP-IP devices were jointly developed by Korea's MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation and Taiwan's Yield Microelectronics Corporation to address the increasing MTP-IP demand for microcontroller (MCU) and touch IC applications.

The new MTP-IP was developed by using MagnaChip's 0.18m mixed signal 5V processes, which significantly reduce the number of mask layers and manufacturing process steps, making it possible to provide cost-competitive MTP solutions. This was accomplished through the use of smaller MTP cells offering diverse memory sizes ranging from low density to high density options.

The new MTP-IP is operable at a wider range of voltages from 1.8V~5.5V, making the solution suitable for MCU applications.

In addition, the newly developed MTP-IP solution also provides high performance and reliability for more stringent customer applications and covers the wide-range of multiple-time programmable memory densities needed in the consumer electronics market. MagnaChip is enhancing its MTP-IP portfolio for customers by adding MTP-IP for 0.18m, mixed-signal 5V only processes as well as 0.35m BCD processes and 0.18m BCD and mixed-signal processes. Beyond current MCU and touch control panel applications, these new MTP-IP solutions are targeting the mid-to-low-tier consumer appliance markets, particularly in China.

"Our continued partnership allows us to offer cost-effective, high-performance non-volatile memory solutions to meet the increasing application-specific needs of our global foundry customers," said MagnaChip CEO YJ Kim.
