Kilopass Ultra-Low Power OTP NVM Provides Storage for Northrop Grumman Advanced Silicon Processor That Prevents Counterfeit Electronic Parts Entering DoD Supply Chains

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kilopass Technology Inc., a leading provider of semiconductor logic embedded non-volatile memory (eNVM) intellectual property (IP), today announced that a tiny 0.01-mm2 advanced silicon processor, developed by Northrop Grumman, contains a patented ultra-low power Kilopass OTP NVM for encryption key storage. The advanced silicon processors are developed under a Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) project to prevent counterfeit devices from entering the Department of Defense (DoD) supply chain. Kilopass’ OTP NVM uses 10 microwatts of power and is less than 0.003 mm2 in size, which is equivalent to 1/30th the size of a grain of salt. Each advanced silicon processor is referred to as a dielet. The 320-bit OTP NVM contains the dielet’s identification and encryption key, allowing authentication of the dielet’s host component, as being from a known trusted supply source.
