TSMC today unveiled the foundry segment?s first 100MHz flash memory single-cycle access speed 90nm embedded flash IP targeting a wide range of automotive, communications and industrial microcontroller (MCU) products.
The company says the new macro provides extremely high performance and excellent system efficiency that meets the demanding requirement of faster on-chip flash memory access and increasing CPU processor speeds. With its 100MHz flash access speed, the new IP enables superior integration with high-performance processors to boost processing performance.
Built on TSMC?s 90nm logic process node, the new macro delivers significantly reduced size and several times faster speed than its 0.18-micron counterpart. It provides single chip memory and logic functionality, saving board space and enhancing system reliability.
