Why Embedded NVM is an Important Part of Every SoC

By Xerxes Wania, Sidense President and CEO, IP-SoC Conference, December 2015

Virtually every SoC needs some type of memory to perform one or more critical functions, including code storage, secure key storage, device configuration, analog/sensor trimming and calibration, and device identification. As device cost, power and security considerations continue to grow in importance, more of this memory is being embedded into the SoCs that contain processor, communication and encryption cores, along with other IP.
