Memory IP (Novelics)
The Mentor embedded Memory IP seeks to achieve optimum dynamic power,leakage,density,speed,reliability and cost for low-power and high-performance ASIC,ASSP,以及SOC设计。These memory IPs are implemented with the standard logic CMOS process with no additional masks or process steps to minimize cost and to maximize reliability and portability.Users of this Memory compete in low-power consumer,无线，high-speed computing,工业的，and networking applications.
Features and Benefits
The memory's faster speeds,lower power and reduced leakage will translate into electronic devices that are less expensive,身体更小，run cooler,and have longer battery life..
The Mentor Graphics patented designs include breakthroughs in the fundamental methods of implementing memory circuits,including new patented bit cell,peripheral circuits,以及明显减小半导体面积的感测放大器电路，access times,and power consumption.消费和商业电子产品将受益于：
- Reducing the costs of processing chips by reducing the semiconductor area required for memory by up to 50 percent with coolSRAM-1T and eliminating the extra mask layers and special processing steps required by competing technologies;;
- Allowing more powerful features with faster memory access time compared to the industry standard;;
- Significantly increasing battery life through decreased system power consumption.
所有支持的内存技术都是通过一个通用的基于Web的规范和电路生成工具MemQuest™提供的。memquest允许多种内存格式，including coolSRAM-1T,库尔斯拉姆6T，coolSRAM-8T,酷睿-6TcoolREG-8T,库拉姆and coolROM to be designed using the same tool.
MemQuest allows designers to customize the various attributes of the memory such as size,纵横比，面积，access time,dynamic power consumption and leakage current.This results in compiler generated custom memory designs in a matter of hours,而不是典型的几个月的开发时间，减少上市时间和生产成本。MemQuest concurrently optimizes the desired specifications and automatically generates the simulation models and physical circuit design.
嵌入式存储器IP可以提高半导体在几乎每个电子空间的性能，including low-power consumer,无线，高性能计算，工业的，automotive and networking applications.
