MagnaChip's 0.18um EEPROM process features a patented side-wall selective transistor cell (SSTC) structure driving multiple voltage levels from 1.8V, 1.8V+3.3V and 1.8V+5.0V. This advanced manufacturing process developed by MagnaChip provides a significantly reduced cell size that translates into a very cost-effective NVM technology solution with enhanced performance for foundry partners such as ELAN.

Namkyu Park, Senior Vice President of Marketing for MagnaChip's foundry division commented, "We are very pleased to announce MagnaChip's continued partnership with ELAN and the ramp of their touchpad products utilizing our advanced 0.18um EEPROM process technology. This process is ideally suited for mobile as well as PC applications such as notebooks and ultrabooks. We will continue to develop high-performance and cost-effective embedded EEPROM technology solutions that meet the growing needs of our foundry customers."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
