Mobiveil’s Universal NOR Flash Controller Allows SoC Designers to Leverage Adesto’s EcoXiP Flash Memory to More than Double CPU Performance over Existing Options
MILPITAS, CA — Nov. 19, 2016 — Mobiveil, Inc., a fast growing supplier of silicon intellectual property (SIP), platforms and IP-enabled design services, today announced it is working with Adesto Technologies (NASDAQ: IOTS), a leading provider of application-specific, ultra-low power non-volatile memory products to bring new, high-performance capabilities to customers designing eXecute-in-Place memory solutions. Mobiveil will adapt its Universal NOR Flash Controller (U-NFC) to leverage the unique characteristics of Adesto’s new EcoXiP flash memory. Incorporating Mobiveil’s U-NFC controller to control the new Adesto EcoXiP flash will provide SoC designers an eXecute-in-Place solution that more than doubles the performance of alternative approaches using standalone NOR-Flash memory.
“The U-NFC supports XiP through an Octal Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), thus enabling speeds of up to 266 Mbytes/s for a 12-pin SPI option,” said Mobiveil CEO Ravi Thummarukudy. “Instead of having to add flash on-chip to hold program data or to have external flash or EPROM loading to on-board SRAM for program storage, adding the U-NFC, the designer can execute directly from the large capacity off-chip EcoXiP Flash.
In addition to enabling XiP, the U-NFC controller provides support for auto boot, read-while-write, wrap transfer, continuous burst transfer, and memory-mapped access to the connected Flash device. Multi-master support with priority and continuous wrap burst transfer support are optional.”
“EcoXiP is designed from the ground-up to be the ultimate solution for serving as the main program memory in an intelligent IoT system,” said Narbeh Derhacobian, chief executive officer of Adesto Technologies. “It greatly exceeds competitive solutions in performance. EcoXiP provides 2.4X CPU performance compared to existing quad devices and 1.4X CPU performance compared to best-in-class octal devices. This solution eliminates the process node restriction that on-chip flash puts on a design. It also saves the cost of adding on-chip SRAM, and saves power since a XiP flash device can be turned off when the system is in a standby state.”
