Auto Industry Replaces Fuse Technology with Standard CMOS Based MTP; Adds Functionality, Testability and Reliability –
The automotive industry has always set the bar in terms of quality and reliability metrics. Yield issues that cause a production line to go down can cost a manufacturer millions of dollars per day, and a field failure that requires a product recall can run into the hundreds of millions of dollars. Read more.

Should Dual Rail Go Mainstream in Deep Nanometer Era? – Electronic Design
Deep sub-nanometer designs are stressed with large process variability. SRAM-bits have the most aggressive design rules in the SoCs, and the most variability. A dual rail solution offsets some of the variability at the cost of additional design efforts. Dual rail solutions appear to be complex, but several area, power, and performance tradeoffs can be made to simplify the design.  Read more.

Memory Interface IP Sector Heats Up – EE Times
Virage Logic and other memory interface IP vendors are now seeing an upswing in business, analysts said. The severe downturn is causing a growing number of OEMs to evaluate or rationalize their internal IP efforts. Read more.

AEON® Memory Technology Gets Automotive Qualification – EE Times
The non-volatile AEON memory technology has been qualified for automotive use according to the AEC-Q100 standard. The technology could compete with certain applications where hitherto EEPROMs and Flash memory has been used.   Read more.

Non-Volatile Memory Qualified for Rigorous Automotive Standard – Electronic Design
Virage Logic’s AEON multi-time programmable (MTP) non-volatile memory (NVM) solution is the first qualified to the stringent quality and reliability standards of the automotive industry using only standard CMOS processing. Automotive integrated circuits (ICs) demand reliability and qualification testing above and beyond the requirements of typical consumer or industrial applications. Read more.

Tool Automates Power Optimization of Embedded SoC Memories – Electronic Design
In developing PowerPro MG, Calypto worked closely with Virage Logic to ensure that the tool would support Virage Logic’s 40nm SiWare™ Memory compilers. The SiWare memories are highly configurable with options to control area, speed, power, and yield. From a power perspective, the memories offer multiple modes: a run mode, a standby mode (light sleep), a shutdown mode, and a dormant mode (deep sleep). Read more.
