NSCore NVM IP validated as “Ready for IBM Technology”

FUKUOKA, Japan — NSCore, Inc., a leading provider of non-volatile, one-time programmable (OTP) memory announced today that its PermSRAM® non-volatile memory intellectual property (IP) has been validated as “Ready for IBM Technology” for IBM’s 0.18 micron CMOS foundry technology.

“Achieving the ‘Ready for IBM Technology’ mark is a significant milestone and one that benefits both NSCore and IBM customers”

The “Ready for IBM Technology” program is designed to help customers speed time to market, reduce development risk and lower development costs. The “Ready for IBM Technology” designation, as used by NSCore, signifies that PermSRAM has been tested and validated in silicon and has met compatibility and integration specifications established by IBM for 0.18 micron CMOS foundry process technologies.

“Achieving the ‘Ready for IBM Technology’ mark is a significant milestone and one that benefits both NSCore and IBM customers,” said Tada Horiuchi, President and CEO of NSCore. “IC designers looking to enhance and differentiate their mixed signal and digital IC’s in IBM’s 0.18 micron CMOS process now have access to qualified high yielding, reliable non-volatile memory.”

NSCore will be exhibiting at DesignCon at the Santa Clara Convention Center on February 2-3 ( Customers interested in learning more about NSCore and its “Ready for IBM Technology” NVM IP are encouraged to visit the company’s booth #321.
