StarChip will use its expertise in designing high-endurance, low-power, area-efficient and robust NVM macros to support SST’s partners.

StarChip® has announced a licensing and design partnership agreement with Silicon Storage Technology, Inc. (SST), a wholly owned subsidiary of Microchip Technology Inc..

This agreement is for the purpose of developing, marketing, selling and distributing products based on SST’s SuperFlash® non-volatile-memory (NVM) technologies.

In addition, StarChip will use its expertise in designing high-endurance, low-power, area-efficient and robust NVM macros to support SST’s partners.

StarChip already introduced its SIM devices with SST’s SuperFlash technology, including StarChip devices with Flash-based code and data storage. The normal Flash endurance has been enhanced with StarChip’s E3 (ECUBE) patented mechanisms.

The E3 (ECUBE) (Enhanced Endurance Engine) delivers a powerful combination of flexibility and best-in-class endurance, offering up to 2 Billion cycles for SIM and M2M applications.

Commenting on the Agreement, Chris Brown (Manager of IP & Technology Licensing for Europe) said: “we are seeing a high demand for flash nvm macro design work at present and this partnership should allow us to service a greater level of concurrent activities. Starchip have proven their nvm design capabilities to us and will be a great partner.”

Yves Fusella, CTO of StarChip, said: “We were really impressed by the native performances and the maturity of the SST ESF technologies. The very close & successful collaboration with SST engineers helped us to improve the native endurance and address new applications like M2M. We are very enthusiastic about partnering with SST on this Design Center activity.”
