GlobalFoundries and eVaderis announced that the two companies are co-developing an ultra-low power microcontroller (MCU) reference design using GF’s embedded MRAM on the 22nm FD-SOI (22FDX) platform.
The two companies say that this new reference design will bring together the superior reliability and versatility of GF’s 22FDX eMRAM and eVaderis’ ultra-low power IP. The new platform will support a broad set of applications such as battery-powered IoT products, consumer and industrial microcontrollers, and automotive controllers.
The jointly developed reference design will be available in Q4 2018. Process design kits for 22FDX with eMRAM and RF solutions are available now. Customer prototyping of 22FDX eMRAM on multi-project wafers (MPWs) is underway, with risk production planned for 2018. Off-the-shelf eMRAM macros are available now, featuring easy design-in with both eFlash and SRAM interface options.
