Virage Logic embedded memories span the requirements of most SoC applications, from ultra low voltage, low power digital hearing aids to very high performance Internet routing and search engines. The STAR Memory System features multi-megabits of embedded memory coupled to a small embedded self-test and repair processor. This strategy insures exceptionally high memory yields and obviates the need for a variety of expensive production equipment. The new NOVeA non-volatile embedded memory enables designers to include reprogrammable NVM in their SoC designs. The NOVeA NVM is produced in a standard logic process. The widely used ASAP embedded memories are optimized for area, speed and power.
