Faraday, Infineon collaborate to develop SONOS eFlash platform on UMC’s 40uLP course of

Hsinchu, Taiwan – Faraday Know-how Company, a ASIC design service and IP supplier, introduced it has collaborated with Infineon to develop a SONOS eFlash platform on UMC’s 40uLP course of. This platform features a newly developed eFlash subsystem IP and full eFlash testing resolution with easy-to-integrate and quick knowledge entry options.

This whole resolution facilitates prospects to speed up product growth and utilise the flash reminiscence know-how extra simply; in the meantime, it additionally simplifies SONOS eFlash testing with a built-in self-test (BIST) operate to supply prospects strong high quality benefits.

To satisfy the demand for 40nm low-power and safe eFlash pushed by AI, sensible grid, IoT, and MCU purposes, Faraday and Infineon collectively developed this SONOS eFlash platform. This platform primarily accommodates a flash reminiscence block, controller and the brand new subsystem IP. This subsystem contains important bus interface, built-in clock management circuits and extra options, comparable to automated eFlash initialisation, simplified erase/write process to dump CPU overhead, learn/write safety, and a pseudo random write buffer, for IP integration and utilisation of SONOS eFlash IP. As well as, this subsystem with BIST permits the chips to be examined on normal testing gear to make sure the flash reminiscence high quality and reliability, as effectively for testing time discount.

“We’re excited to work with Faraday to develop this SONOS eFlash platform for purchasers,” says Vineet Agrawal, senior director of Infineon Applied sciences LLC Reminiscence Options. “The 40uLP SONOS eFlash has already delivered considerable mass-production tasks inside the previous couple of years. With Faraday’s complete SONOS eFlash IP subsystem, IP portfolio, and testing options, we consider this resolution will facilitate Faraday’s prospects to hurry up the event of a variety of high-performance and low-power merchandise within the close to future.”

“Infineon’s SONOS eFlash know-how has been market-proven in varied purposes on 40nm course of,” says Flash Lin, COO of Faraday. “By leveraging the benefits of Infineon’s SONOS eFlash on UMC 40uLP, manufacturing cycle time can profit from far fewer extra masks layers when in comparison with different eFlash options. Combining with the brand new platform and our complete ready-to-use 40nm IP merchandise, that are absolutely appropriate with 40uLP SONOS eFlash course of, we additional assist prospects simply obtain value, energy, and efficiency necessities for his or her next-generation designs.”
