Kilopass Technology and Cadence
Kilopass Technology develops leading-edge one-time programmable (OTP) non-volatile memory (NVM) intellectual property (IP) blocks for system-on-chip (SoC) applications. This memory is used to safeguard firmware and to store security codes, calibration data, and other application-critical information.

When Kilopass started working on a new product line, they were faced with an aggressive 9-month timeline to complete the industry’s first 4Mb embedded OTP NVM. This complex design would require a solution that automated layout, optimized communications among designers and implementation engineers, and allowed them to support multiple foundries and process nodes.

Find out how the Cadence Virtuoso unified/custom analog flow (6.1) helped Kilopass tapeout several weeks early.
