Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC) and eMemory, a manufacturer of embedded non-volatile memory (eNVM) products, announced that they are expanding their partnership over one-time and multiple times programmable eNVM technologies across nodes ranging from 0.35um to 40nm. Since 2004, SMIC has been applying eMemory's eNVM solutions to its processes, such as logic, HV, analogue and BCD, which are used in products including digital set-top boxes, multimedia players and microcontrollers.

SMIC and eMemory's most recent collaboration involved an OTP solution based on SMIC's 0.18um and 0.13um processes, which offer customers high reliability and cost effective power management solutions. These solutions can benefit analogue and power management clients to gain tactical advantages for serving the vast smartphone, tablet PC, and the emerging wearable devices market.

On the other hand, eMemory and SMIC are also actively developing eNVM solutions for applications that require high endurances and security features. The offered solution is capable of meeting a myriad of client requirements including low cost, superior performance and reliability.

"Our partnership with eMemory further strengthens the quality of our products so we can provide our customers highly competitive products with smaller sizes and better performance at lower costs. We look forward to forging a closer relationship with eMemory on our future high-end products," said Dr. Tianshen Tang, senior vice president of SMIC Design Service.
