Virage Logic Offers Embedded Memory Webinar

Virage Logic Corporation (NASDAQ:VIRL), the semiconductor industry’s trusted IP partner and pioneer in Silicon Aware IP(TM), announced that it will present a free online technical webinar titled, “How to Achieve Dramatic Area Savings and Power Reduction for Consumer and Secure Applications with Next Generation Embedded Non-Volatile Memory.” The live webinar will be broadcast via TechOnLine on Tuesday, February 27, 2007, at 11:00 a.m. PST, 2:00 p.m. EST.

Attendees of this informative webinar will learn how the next-generation NOVeA(R), manufactured on a standard CMOS logic process with no additional masking, process steps or process modifications, delivers significant area and power reductions to better address today’s advanced consumer and secure application requirements.

“At less than 50 percent the area of previous NOVeA versions, this new offering provides developers of cost-sensitive consumer and secure applications with dramatic area savings,” said Pat Lasserre, director of NOVeA marketing for Virage Logic. “Additionally, the new NOVeA consumes roughly 30 percent less power than previous NOVeA versions, which is important in consumer applications and in passive RFID tags where the read distance is governed by power consumption. With its 100 percent cell redundancy architecture, NOVeA also provides designers with high yield and reliability.”

To support the low-cost and high-performance requirements of today’s consumer and secure applications, Virage Logic’s NOVeA provides a multi-time programmable embedded non-volatile memory (NVM) which is key in applications such as Flash memory cards, DVD players and recorders, and set-top boxes which require sophisticated security and digital rights management (DRM) capabilities. NOVeA is also key in wireless applications such as RFID tags and ZigBee. For more information about the recently introduced next-generation NOVeA, see “Virage Logic Launches Next Generation Embedded Non-Volatile Memory,” January 29, 2007.

Registration and information about the free, one-hour webinar is available.
