LONDON Sidense Corp. (Ottawa, Canada), a develop of antifuse-based non-volatile memory, has announced that its one-time programmable (OTP) technology has been designed into a software-programmable semiconductor product from XMOS Semiconductor Ltd. (Bristol, England).
XMOS has received working silicon of a four-processor chip implemented in 90-nm general-purpose logic CMOS from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. "XMOS has developed software-defined silicon technology that gives customers high levels of configurability and programmability at low cost.
Sidense's OTP technology helped us achieve the aggressive performance and cost profiles we were aiming for," said Mark Lippett, XMOS' vice president of engineering, in a statement issued by Sidense.
"By providing the industry's fastest read access times and smallest footprints, we were able to provide XMOS with the ideal and most reliable OTP solution for the competitive consumer electronics space," said Steven Cliadakis, vice president of worldwide sales at Sidense, in the same statement.
