Optimizing Sensor Performance with 1T-OTP Trimming

By Jim Lipman
Sidense Corp.

Introduction

A sensor is a device that detects a change in a stimulus and converts it into an electronic signal that can be measured or recorded. The stimulus can be many things, including a physical property, environmental parameter, chemical composition or a location, to name just a few. All sensing elements have nonlinearities that include an intrinsic nonlinearity over sensing range along with offset and sensitivity nonlinearity variations over temperature.

Is it really a good strategy to compensate marketing weakness by issuing a legal battle?

SemiWiki Blog "Is it really a good strategy to compensate marketing weakness by issuing a legal battle?" by Eric Esteve (April 17, 2013)

The decision made by United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, "Affirming" the District Court for the Northern District of California's summary judgment of non-infringement on Kilopass' patent claims and its dismissal, with prejudice, of all remaining claims against Sidense, is certainly good news for IP and EDA vendors playing a fair sales and marketing game in the field.

What really means high reliability for OTP NVM?

SemiWiki Blog "What really means high reliability for OTP NVM?" by Eric Esteve (April 2, 2013)

When Sidense announced that their OTP macros are fully qualified for -40ºC to 150°C read and field-programmable operations for TSMC's 180nm BCD 1.8/5V/HV and G 1.8/5V processes, this represents a design challenge probably as difficult to meet that, for example, pushing a Cortex A9 ARM CPU embedded in a 28 nm Application Processor to run at 3 GHz instead of 1.5 GHz.

Podcast "Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry", Electronic Engineering Journal

Podcast "Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry", Electronic Engineering Journal by Amelia Dalton (interview with Xerxes Wania) – March 15, 2013

All aboard! The train is leaving the station.This week we’re taking the EE express from EDA station through some twisty turns in the mountainous region of ethics in our fair semiconductor industry, and then it's on over the hill to some awesome energetic engineering. We're checking out the EDA goodness that is CDNLive including the seriously Sci-Fi movie in one of this year's keynotes. On our next stop, we're looking into the role that ethics plays (and should play) in the semiconductor industry with Xerxes Wania (CEO - Sidense), and we're also grooving to a whole new way to do The Harlem Shake - engineering style.

Boost your car with OTP based Analog Trimming and Calibration

SemiWiki Blog "Boost your car with OTP based Analog Trimming and Calibration" by Eric Esteve (March 1, 2013)

Embedded NVM technology based functions can be implemented in large SoC designed in advanced technology nodes down to 28nm, as there is no requirement for extra mask levels, like when integrating NAND Flash, negatively impacting the final cost. And it is also possible to integrate One Time Programmable (OTP) to store trim and calibration settings in an analog device, usually designed in more mature technology node, so that the device powers up already calibrated for the system in which it is embedded.
