Cypress Semiconductor Corp. Licenses 55-Nanometer Embedded Flash IP to United Microelectronics Corporation

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. and United Microelectronics Corporation announced that UMC licensed Cypress's SONOS (Silicon Oxide Nitride Oxide Silicon) embedded Flash memory intellectual property for the 55-nanometer process technology node. Cypress SONOS delivers an easy-to-integrate nonvolatile memory cell with unmatched scalability for future development. The primary applications include wearables, Internet of Things applications, microcontrollers and logic-dominated products. Cypress's 55-nm SONOS embedded nonvolatile memory process provides significant advantages over other embedded NVM offerings. SONOS requires fewer additional mask layers to insert it into a standard CMOS process, specifically, three to four additional masks compared with the eleven to twelve additional masks generally needed for other embedded Flash technologies. SONOS does not alter standard device characteristics or models when added to baseline CMOS process, preserving existing design IP. SONOS delivers intrinsically high yields and reliability, 10 years of data retention, 100,000 program/erase endurance cycles, and robust resistance to soft errors. UMC qualified Cypress's S65(TM) 65-nm SONOS process technology back in 2013. Cypress and UMC have demonstrated the ability to scale SONOS to smaller nodes, expediting future IP development.
