Cypress Semiconductor Corp. recently started volume shipments of microcontrollers containing its proprietary 40-nm Embedded Charge-Trap (eCT) Flash manufactured at United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC). The shipments are part of a multiple-year collaboration between Cypress and UMC to integrate Cypress’s flash technology with UMC’s 40-nm Low Power (40LP) logic process.
With a 0.053 µm2 cell size, the eCT Flash macro is capable of 8-ns random access and 30-μs word-programming speed, making it well suited for high-performance applications as well as stringent automotive reliability requirements. The eCT Flash macros are also available for licensing from Cypress.
