SANTA CLARA, CALIF.––November 11, 2014 –– Kilopass Technology, Inc., a leading provider of semiconductor logic non-volatile memory (NVM) intellectual property (IP), today announced thatAltair Semiconductor selected its anti-fuse XPM (eXtra Permanent Memory) NVM IP for a design shipping in a high-volume tablet offered by a major telecomm service provider. Altair chose the Kilopass one-time programmable (OTP) memory because it provides highly secure encryption key storage in a small physical size that can be field programmed and available in standard logic CMOS at multiple foundries.

“We are extremely pleased that Altair Semiconductor chose our XPM memory block for their high-volume chip design,” said Linh Hong, vice president of marketing and business development at Kilopass Technology, Inc. “Our enablement at multiple foundries in leading-edge deep submicron process technologies assures Altair of multiple sources of silicon supply from foundries with the most cost effective terms; a major advantage in the highly competitive world of tablets and smartphones.”

“As the leading developer and supplier of single-mode LTE chipsets, we buy IP that helps us meet our fast moving design windows and contributes to the value we provide”, says Eran Eshed, co-founder and vice president of marketing at Altair Semiconductor Inc. “Kilopass’ IP enables a highly-secure OTP memory that may be programmed in the field, and that is capable of being fabricated in standard logic at multiple foundries and process technologies.”
