Based on its highly reliable automotive-grade 180 nanometer platform, X-FAB has announced the industry’s lowest power Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) solution for use in harsh environments.
X-FAB has rigorously qualified the eFlash IP block to comply with the AEC-Q100 standard, so that it offers engineers an automotive-grade solution capable of operating across a temperature range of -40 °C to 125 °C. With this low power option, X-FAB complements its existing NVM portfolio.
Both the eFlash IP block and the NVRAM compiler are immediately available via X-FAB’s XH0108 process for new designs. The combination of different NVM options with high-voltage features and low-leakage properties at a low mask count make the XH018 process a highly effective, reliable and cost-efficient solution for emerging energy harvesting and IoT devices.
Other available Flash blocks address automotive applications up to 175 °C in read operation. The SONOS technology enables reliable operation of the IP block when combined with high-voltage (HV) options ranging from 6 to 45 V.
The NVRAM compiler facilitates generating and integrating memories from 1-kbits to 16-kbits in a wide range of applications requiring fail-safe memories.
