X-FAB and Anvo-Systems Dresden Cooperate to Provide High-Speed Non-Volatile Memory Solutions

Leading analog/mixed-signal foundry supplier X-FAB Silicon Foundries and non-volatile memory specialist Anvo-Systems Dresden today announced a cooperative agreement to offer high-speed non-volatile memory solutions that combine SRAM, DRAM and SONOS FLASH technologies; the compact design results in a small silicon footprint that keeps device costs low. In this partnership, Anvo-Systems Dresden provides the IP and design expertise, and X-FAB provides the semiconductor manufacturing process, capacity and quality assurance. The new nvSRAM solutions are ideal for solutions requiring high reliability and security, such as for medical, communication, automotive, bio-technology and industrial control and metering applications.

Anvo-Systems Dresden’s novel nvSRAM approach offers multiple cost and energy-saving advantages compared to traditional Flash and EEPROM solutions. It combines the typical SRAM features with extremely robust, energy-efficient and cost-effective SONOS FLASH technology. The nvSRAM IP blocks come with unlimited and fast (20ns) read and write operation and a standard SRAM interface. A full parallel data backup up to 125Mb/s guarantees fast store operation. Because the energy for storage is gathered during the normal operation cycle, no additional customer control circuitry is needed. In addition, the compact design and small silicon footprint hold down device costs.

To guarantee stable and reliable production of the nvSRAM solutions, X-FAB has installed a dedicated 0.18 micrometer manufacturing process on 8-inch wafers optimized for highly reliable memories based on SONOS architecture. The special memory solutions developed by Anvo-Systems Dresden survive γ-ray sterilization.

Anvo-Systems Dresden, after introducing its serial nvSRAM product families earlier this year, recently released a new parallel 256k nvSRAM product family with 25ns access time, unlimited Read/Write cycles, multiple STORE options and unique security features. The company will present its parallel nvSRAM solution at the electronica show in Munich next week (Hall A6, Booth 565).

As part of X-FAB’s X-CHAIN design and supply chain partner network, Anvo-Systems is among more than 30 companies specialized in chip design, test, assembly, supply chain management or turnkey IC solutions. The network partners provide additional services to X-FAB’s customers that go beyond the pure-play foundry approach.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
