Designers can integrate digital content with analogue trimming or data storage into deployments such as 5G New Radio
X-FAB Silicon Foundries, an analogue/mixed-signal and speciality foundry, together with Attopsemi, innovator of I-fuse
X-FAB’s XR013 is a feature-rich, open-platform, 130nm technology that is optimised for RF applications. These include:
- Cellular infrastructure
- Wi-Fi connectivity
- Automotive V2X communications
- IoT and many more
With this cooperation, designers can now integrate digital content with analogue trimming or data storage into next-generation deployments, such as 5G New Radio (NR). A key benefit of using Attopsemi I-fuse OTP memory on the XR013 RF platform is the flexibility with which RF products can address different regional market requirements via a single chip design (as different configurations can be stored). This will lead to project development cost savings, as well as facilitating inventory management.
“We’re very excited about the prospect of our I-fuse
“Close collaboration with Attopsemi has created a cost-effective OTP memory solution for our customers using XR013,” said Dr Greg U’Ren, Director of RF Technology at X-FAB, added. “This will be pivotal in enabling our customers to increase their on-chip functionality, giving them a strong foundation for further innovation and allowing the requirements of different geographic locations to be attended to.”
The qualified Attopsemi I-fuse OTP solution is available for clients from X-FAB’s customer portal “My X-FAB”.
