A quarterly look at embedded NVM/OTP happenings
Why Customers Choose Sidense OTP
Tom Schild, VP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Sidense
An important part of developing and selling a product is understanding why your customers want the specific product you have vs. products offered by your competitors. This is the case for Sidense - we want to know why people want to use our antifuse-based one-transistor-OTP (1T-OTP) non-volatile memory IP instead of the OTP IP that they can purchase from several other companies. To understand what our customers need and want, we look at two general classes of applications for which they are developing their chips: automotive/industrial and consumer.
NVM on the Mind
Troy Gilliland, Synopsys (October 25, 2013)
As applications such as near-field communications (NFC), radio-frequency identification (RFID), and advanced sensors require more embedded non-volatile memory (NVM), designers are driven to incorporate advanced NVM technology to meet system demands. This article will highlight the key power, area, and reliability requirements of these markets and show how the requirements continue to change over time.

MRAM is a promising technology that delivers the speeds of SRAM and the non-volatility of flash with unlimited endurance. At one time, MRAM was even billed as a "universal memory," which is a single product that could replace today's DRAM, flash and SRAM. MRAM, however, is just now getting off the ground after years of delays, and the technology is no longer being promoted as a "universal memory."
Crossbar has unveiled a new Resistive RAM (RRAM) technology that will be capable of storing up to one terabyte (TB) of data on a single 200mm2 chip. The technology is based on a simple three-layer structure of silver, amorphous silicon and silicon and is capable of withstanding temperature swings up to 125°C, with up to 10,000 cycles, and retention of 10 years.
