Kulim, Malaysia, -- Oct 12, 2012 --SilTerra Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., a Malaysian home grown leading semiconductor wafer foundry, officially announced the production release of 0.18-micron embedded Flash technology, dubbed C18E. SilTerra has licensed SuperFlash © technology from Silicon Storage Technology Inc (SST), a leader in Flash memory technology, to co-develop and qualify the C18E embedded Flash memory technology to address the expanding microcontroller, RFID and smartcard markets. The technology is fully qualified to meet the industry recognized JEDEC standard.
The C18E technology is built on SilTerra’s proven 0.18-micron CMOS foundry matched technology together with SST’s proven split gate embedded SuperFlash technology. In addition, the C18E technology is capable of being integrated with RFCMOS and Mixed-Signal device modules to create highly programmable system-on-chip solutions.
The C18E technology with SST’s SuperFlash memory macro has been completely silicon characterized and it has also successfully demonstrated 10 years Data Retention and 100 thousand endurance cycles capability.
“I am delighted that with the production release of SST’s SuperFlash embedded Flash technology on Silterra’s proven 0.18um platform, SilTerra is now able to serve the fast-growing flash-enabled applications such as micro-controller, smartcard, RFID, touch controller across broader customer base. We thank SST team for their great support to transfer their SuperFlash technology to SilTerra, and look forward to grow our mutual businesses together.” said Yit Loong Lai, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing of SilTerra.
With this achievement, SilTerra is well positioned to offer full suite of non-volatile memory solutions from OTP (One-Time-Programming), to MTP (Multiple-Time-Programming) and now embedded Flash. Moving forward, SilTerra will explore partnership with SST to expand its embedded Flash technology in BCD technology and future advanced nodes.
