Synopsys DesignWare AEON NVM IP Available for 180nm Process

Synopsys announced DesignWare AEON Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) IP for multiple 180-nanometer (nm) process technologies. The DesignWare AEON NVM IP includes few-time programmable (FTP), multiple-time programmable (MTP) radio-frequency identification (RFID) and erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) IP solutions. DesignWare AEON embedded NVM IP is also available for 65nm to 250nm process technologies. DesignWare AEON NVM IP is ideal for wireless, RFID and analog and mixed-signal SoC designs.

DesignWare AEON Embedded NVM IP Highlights

  • No high voltage generation circuitry is required
  • All programming and re-programming is done using a standard CMOS technology with no additional masks or process adaption
  • Enables designs to operate from a single core supply
  • Eliminates the complication of generating a separate, high-voltage signal for NVM programming, or supporting a high-voltage I/O pad
  • Supports extended temperature ranges beyond industry standard (up to 125 degrees C for commercial and industrial products and up to 150 degrees C for automotive products)
  • Over 100 different memory configurations — all qualified to the appropriate industrial specifications
  • Ideal for wireless, RFID and analog and mixed-signal SoC designs

DesignWare AEON Products
