Key Players from the IC Industry Join Kilopass at DesignCon to Discuss Memory Needs and Options for Consumer Products

David Bursky, Semiconductor Journalist, Chairs Panel with Representatives from Microsoft, Kilopass, Silicon Laboratories, TSMC, and Zoran Corporation

Who/What At DesignCon, Kilopass Technology, a leading provider of semiconductor non-volatile memory (NVM) intellectual property (IP), has organized a panel session with representatives from several key players from the IC industry to address the topic of Memory Needs and Options for Consumer Products at a Business Forum panel session.

In addition, Kilopass will be exhibiting and showcasing its silicon-proven, low-cost and highly secure XPM memory technology. XPM offers the benefits of post-manufacturing programming of non-volatile memory implemented in standard-logic CMOS processes, including 180nm, 130nm and 90nm. Applications for embedded XPM memories include analog trimming and calibration, chip IDs, security keys, DRM (Digital Rights Management), HDMI, memory repair, CMOS image sensors, digital logic configuration, and secure firmware storage.

Memory Needs and Options for Consumer Products

The rapid expansion of feature sets in consumer products such as cell phones and PDAs is pushing the limits of embedded memories. Price pressure, the need for vendor IP and user data security, and performance requirements are forcing designers of consumer-product chips to evaluate both traditional and emerging memory technologies for their designs. This panel discusses the pros and cons of several existing memory technologies along with some up-and-comers targeted at future consumer appliances-handling communications and entertainment applications. Attendees will also learn about memory technology requirements for the rapidly evolving consumer chip market.
