|Hua Hong NEC Establishes NVM Technical Cooperation Relationship with Cypress|
Shanghai Hua Hong NEC Electronics Co. Ltd. ("Hua Hong NEC") and Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) have signed an agreement whereby Cypress will license its 0.13um SONOS (Silicon Oxide Nitride Oxide Silicon) embedded nonvolatile memory (NVM) technology to Hua Hong NEC.
Embedded nonvolatile memory is one of the strategic niche technology platforms offered by Hua Hong NEC. Its 0.35um embedded EEPROM, 0.35um embedded OTP and 0.25um embedded Flash technologies have been in mass production for several years and have helped Hua Hong NEC to deliver outstanding performance in the area of embedded NVM. Cypress's 0.13um SONOS technology will extend Hua Hong NEC's rich technology offering and enhance its market leadership in embedded NVM, while enabling Cypress to drive adoption of the technology.
SONOS flash memory has numerous advantages, such as excellent salability, high endurance, low power, radiation hardness, and is highly compatible with standard CMOS technologies. In addition, SONOS can provide more cost-effective solutions with a low mask adder, compared to other embedded NVM technologies.
"We are delighted to cooperate with Cypress on embedded flash/EEPROM technology at the 0.13um node. By leveraging Cypress's experience with SONOS technology, Hua Hong NEC can offer its customers a more comprehensive and higher quality foundry service," said Dr. Steve Liu, president of Hua Hong NEC. "0.13um SONOS NVM technology will also put Hua Hong NEC in a leading position in the area of embedded flash/EEPROM. This will be a powerful technology for applications such as smart cards and microcontrollers."
"Hua Hong NEC is a well-established leader in the embedded flash/EEPROM foundry market," said Shahin Sharifzadeh, executive vice president of wafer fabs and technology at Cypress. "This agreement will help to drive Cypress's SONOS technology as the predominant solution for a variety of embedded NVM applications."
