MagnaChip and eMemory to Offer 0.18um EEPROM IP

SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., Dec. 16, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation ("MagnaChip") (NYSE: MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed signal semiconductor products, today announced that it has completed qualification of 0.18um Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM) intellectual property developed in partnership with eMemory Technology, Inc., a leading Taiwanese non-volatile memory (NVM) IP provider. By adding eMemory's advanced EEPROM IP to MagnaChip's existing non-volatile memory IP portfolio, MagnaChip can provide enhanced foundry services for its global customers requiring high-performance embedded NVM IC design solutions.

MagnaChip developed its patented EEPROM cell using a Side-wall Selective Transistor Cell (SSTC) structure featuring a world-class cell size. The embedded EEPROM IP utilizes an advanced 0.18um manufacturing process and includes multiple voltage levels of 1.8V, 1.8V+3.3V, and 1.8V+5.0V. This newly released EEPROM IP is particularly well suited for enhancing the performance of touch controller ICs and consumer MCUs, computer periphery controllers, LED light controllers and other applications which require optimized features such as reduced die size and faster read speeds.

eMemory's EEPROM IP offers the advantages of a 1.8V single power supply, competitive IP macro size, high access speed, and a shorter IP development period. Moreover, with the feature of serial direct access (SDA) for Multi-DUT testing, eMemory's EEPROM IP can significantly reduce product testing cycle time and costs.

"eMemory has been collaborating with MagnaChip for many years, starting with One Time Programmable (OTP) IP. Based on a strong partnership with MagnaChip, the new EEPROM IP will further strengthen eMemory's NVM solutions for a wide variety of product applications. Looking towards the future, eMemory will continue to work closely with MagnaChip to broaden eMemory's NVM IP product portfolio that is targeted at various process technologies and emerging applications to fulfill market requirements," said Rick Shen, President of eMemory Technology.

"We are very pleased to have qualified the 0.18um EEPROM IP in collaboration with eMemory, a well-respected provider of NVM technology," said Namkyu Park, Executive Vice President and General Manager of MagnaChip's Semiconductor Manufacturing Services Division. "This newly qualified EEPROM IP will enable MagnaChip to continue to provide a broad variety of high performance NVM IP solutions to meet the application-specific needs of our foundry customers."
