MagnaChip to Offer Competitive Embedded Multiple Time Programmable (MTP) IP Solutions

SEOUL, South Korea and CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation ("MagnaChip") (NYSE: MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products, today announced that it has signed a joint development agreement with Yield Microelectronics Corporation (YMC) to develop a family of embedded 0.18um standard Multiple Time Programmable (MTP) IP solutions.

The MTP-IP joint development agreement covers a variety of standard memory cell sizes suited for embedded applications such as touch control panels, code storage, trimming design and microcontrollers. By adding YMC's MTP-IP solutions to MagnaChip's existing non-volatile memory (NVM) technology portfolio, MagnaChip will provide enhanced foundry services to its global customers through competitive IC designs and NVM performance targeted at next generation mobile and industrial applications.

Touch control panels are widely used in mobile devices, navigation equipment, digital cameras and other consumer products. By adopting YMC's MTP-IP solutions, foundry customers can take advantage of high voltage (HV) features in addition to added NVM functionality. Utilizing these solutions will directly lead to improved signal-to-noise ratio characteristics and increased performance of touch control panels in comparison with pure CMOS process. YMC's MTP-IP solutions allow the control unit in each touch panel to be integrated and create an optimal touch sensing solution.

In addition, YMC's MTP IP can utilize MagnaChip's CMOS manufacturing process to replace existing embedded flash. This is a competitive advantage for foundry customers seeking to provide new generation touch panels with high-performance and cost-effective embedded solutions. With the addition of YMC's MTP solution utilizing MagnaChip's Bipolar-CMOS-DMOS (BCD) manufacturing processes, customers will have the added flexibility of being able to expand into new areas and applications such as microcontrollers.

Namkyu Park, Executive Vice President and General Manager of MagnaChip's Semiconductor Manufacturing Services Division, commented, "We are very pleased to announce MagnaChip's continued close partnership with YMC and the joint development of their MTP-IP solutions utilizing our flagship 0.18um BCD technology. MagnaChip will continue to provide a broad variety of high performance and cost effective NVM IP solutions to meet the increasing application-specific needs of our foundry customers."
