Embedded Memory Compiler IP

Silvaco delivers a large portfolio of Embedded Memory Compilers and Specialty Memory. Optimized for low power, high performance, high density, and high yield across a broad range of process technologies, our solutions enable designers to achieve the optimal trade-off between performance, power, and area. Utilizing advanced power management capabilities, our memory compilers can support the most demanding low-power, low-leakage and low voltage design requirements. We also provide high performance cryogenic memory compilers for the ultimate in high-speed memory solutions.

SRAM, Register Files, ROM

Silvaco offers leading-edge single port and dual port SRAM, 1-port and 2-port Register File, and ROM memory compilers for general purpose, low power or high performance applications.

Silvaco SRAMs can be configured to operate at low voltages and have ultra-low leakage capabilities in standby to extend the effective battery life of end products. These compilers also support low voltage modes delivering high performance at the lowest power.

Our memory compilers target multiple nodes and processes in multiple foundries and have been proven in hundreds of designs and applications. Silvaco memory compilers support both CMOS and FDSOI processes and technology nodes down to 4nm.

Our compact programmable ROM array architecture (with a single programming layer) features high-speed memory read times enabled by reduced stray capacitance. Silvaco’s unique architecture enables reduced area with lower dynamic consumption compared to traditional ROM.

Flexible Design Architecture

  • Optimized power/performance/area for all types of ASIC and SoC designs
  • Supports high-performance, cost-sensitive, and low-power applications
  • Supports multiple foundries, nodes, and process variants

Advanced Power Management
Advanced Power Management

  • Multiple power modes for low-leakage requirement
  • Compiler options for dual rails, embedded switches, and many additional architectural features

Multiple power modes for static power savings are available providing the flexibility to select the best trade-off between power saving and wake up time. Retention, retention-nap, and shut-down modes provide a progressive reduction of leakage power compared to stand-by mode.
