Sidense Licenses 1T-OTP to Exar
Exar using Sidense’s SiPROM NVM macro in Connectivity product line
Ottawa, Canada – (September 11, 2012) – Sidense Corp., a leading developer of Logic Non-Volatile Memory (LNVM) one-time programmable (OTP) memory IP cores, has announced that Exar has licensed its 1T-OTP memory IP. Exar, a provider of high-performance analog mixed-signal integrated circuits and advanced sub-system solutions, is using Sidense's SiPROM OTP in their Connectivity product line. The 1T-OTP SiPROM helps enable in-system, field programmability of user settings and storage of configuration information in a very small footprint.
"Sidense's 1T-OTP SiPROM macro enables us to provide a very flexible and compact solution that can store IDs, mode and configuration information," said Carlos Laber, Exar's Sr. Vice President of Worldwide R&D. "We chose SiPROM because it provides many advantages, such as field-programmability in a small footprint."
"We are very pleased to have our 1T-OTP macros designed into more leading-edge products from a highly respected company such as Exar," said Tom Schild, Sidense's Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Sales. "This latest use for our 1T-OTP memory further demonstrates the pervasiveness of Sidense OTP in a broad range of high-volume applications, spanning many mature and leading-edge process nodes and variants."
