HLMC and Cypress Announce Initial Production Milestone of Embedded Flash Using 55-Nanometer Low Power Process Technology with SONOS Flash
Cypress' SONOS embedded nonvolatile memory (NVM) offers significant advantages over other embedded NVM technologies. SONOS provides a competitive cell size with lower manufacturing costs, as it requires only 3 mask layers to insert it into a standard CMOS process compared with the 9 to 12 additional masks generally needed for other embedded Flash technologies. SONOS delivers intrinsically high yields and best-in-class reliability, 10 years of data retention, 200,000 program/erase endurance cycles, and robust resistance to soft errors. Cypress has demonstrated the ability to scale SONOS to 40-nm and 28-nm nodes, expediting future IP development.
"With the escalating demand for low-cost and low-power embedded Flash for IoT applications, we are excited to reach this milestone and look forward to a fast production ramp to meet our customers' demand," said
"The combination of HLMC's robust 55-nm LP process technology and manufacturing expertise along with the high-performance and leading reliability of our SONOS Flash memory enabled a smooth path to achieve risk production of these low power embedded Flash products," said
