Intersil has received a license for AEON/MTP memory from Impinj to enable advanced features in Intersil’s digital power management chips. Digital power management controller chips utilize embedded NVM to store crucial system power information such as configuration and digital voltage settings. AEON/MTP’s true multiple-times programmability (MTP) ideally suits power management applications by allowing data to be constantly retrieved and updated as system characteristics change.

AEON/MTP also supports the advanced configurability and control features required by PMBus. Targeted at advanced logic CMOS manufacturing processes, AEON NVM cores offer MTP capability but require no additional mask layers or processing steps. Impinj's portfolio of NVM cores, including AEON/MTP, are available at the world's leading foundries in volume production at 0.18-μm and 0.25-μm process nodes with 0.13-μm in qualification. AEON/MTP can be evaluated under Impinj’s “Try It Now” program that provides a free, six-month evaluation license
