Synopsys DesignWare® Medium Density Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) IP, an alternative to embedded flash memory, provides up to 512 Kbits of on-chip memory in standard CMOS and BCD processes without requiring additional masks or processing steps. The NVM IP eliminates the need for external electrically erasable programmable read only memory (EEPROM) or flash memory when integrating microcontrollers in analog IC designs such as smart meters, PMICs
and touchscreen controller applications.
Delivered as a hard IP block, the DesignWare Medium Density NVM IP includes all the necessary support and control circuitry, including all high-voltage generation and distribution required for programming. Also included are test modes that reduce the required test time and improve production test coverage as well as a comprehensive validated test flow to accelerate time-to-market.
