Attopsemi’s I-fuse™ OTP provides ultra-low read voltage/current, ultra-low program voltage/current, small size and wide temperature to enable GLOBALFOUNDRIES 22nm FD-SOI for Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems’ (IPMS) 61GHz RFID tags in IoT applications.
Santa Clara, California — November 19, 2018
Attopsemi Technology, a revolutionary OTP IP vendor, announced today that it recently had 64×1 OTP (One-Time Programmable) IP working at 0.4V and 1uW read for Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems’ (IPMS) battery-less 61GHz RFID tags on GLOBALFOUDNRIES 22nm (22FDX®) FD-SOI process.
Attopsemi, a fuse-based OTP IP provider, has I-fuse™ IP across all CMOS processes from 0.7um to 22nm, 7nm, and beyond, including G, LP, ULP, mixed signal, high voltage, BCD processes, and FD-SOI, etc. Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS), a leading-edge research institute, developed high frequency and miniature RFID tags for industry, communication, and IoT applications.
“Our high performance RFID tags run at 61GHz that needs OTP with very low read voltage/power of 0.4V/1uW, and low program voltage/current of about 1.0V/1.0mA for authentication. We found GF’s 22FDX technology and Attopsemi’s I-fuse™ OTP can meet our requirements. We’re very glad to have these technologies to enable our high performance, battery-less 61GHz RFID tags,” said Hans-Juergen Holland, Deputy Head of Business Unit WMS, Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS).
“We sincerely appreciate GF and Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems’ (IPMS) support in developing our proprietary ultra-low power I-fuse™ OTP technology for RFID tags,” said Shine Chung, Chairman of Attopsemi. “This project has proved that we have innovative circuit techniques other than the innovative I-fuse™ techniques. After years of dedicated works, our I-fuse™ technology has finally found an application to prove I-fuse™ can provide low power read other than low power program. By using a fraction of program current and cell area than the other OTP solutions, we highly expect our I-fuse™ can bring more substantial benefits to the ultra-low power IoT applications.”
