Kilopass Announces XPM Is First CMOS Logic NVM Technology to Complete Qualification on 80nm and 90nm Process Technologies

SANTA CLARA, CA | Posted on April 17th, 2008

Kilopass Technology, Inc., a leading provider of semiconductor non-volatile memory (NVM) intellectual property (IP), today announced that its extra-permanent memory (XPM) technology is the first high density embedded NVM technology to complete qualification for 80nm and 90nm process technologies with the successful qualification of its XPM-80GC and XPM-90LP product families. Both XPM product families passed all the certification criteria and are now available for mass production.

XPM technology's scalability makes it possible for Kilopass to quickly support new process technologies for low power, high volume consumer products.

"Our ability to quickly port XPM memory technology to a new process technology with higher performance, larger storage capacities, and smaller footprints gives us an edge in the competitive, consumer-oriented market and highlights the high-density process scalability of our XPM technology," remarked Craig Rawlings, Director of Marketing, Kilopass Technology.

The 80GC process is an 80-nanometer "half-node" process. It sits between the 90-nm and the 65-nm. The XPM-80GC underlying CMOS process provides higher performance for general purpose applications while the XPM-90LP underlying CMOS process provides both low active and standby power for handheld and mobile applications. Target applications for the 80nm and 90nm processes include general purpose consumer as well and mobile and wireless applications.

By passing Kilopass' rigorous foundry partner certification criteria, customers are able to review credible evidence, validating that XPM is a proper fit for high volume manufacturing applications and product applications requiring proven reliability.
