Grenoble, France -
Magnetic Logic Unit (MLU) is a CMOS based rugged magnetic technology capable of offering important advantages in performance, size and security for embedded micro-controllers. MLUs solutions are used in mobile and security applications, such as smart cards and secure data servers, replacing Flash and RAM. Crocus' MLUs are also ideally suited to new applications in extreme operating conditions, particularly in high temperature automotive and industrial equipment.
For Crocus, the agreement further demonstrates the strategic importance its very promising MLU technology is having among major industry players seeking to enhance embedded security in connected devices.
"The potential impact of emerging non-volatile memory technologies is substantial. ARM is keen to investigate and understand how this may ultimately affect our broad ecosystem of silicon partners, OEMs and other stakeholders," said
Crocus will provide ARM with access to its MLU technology. This includes access to MRAM blocks in sub-90nm technology which can replace traditional Flash based non-volatile memory, plus MIP(TM) (Match In Place(TM)) enabled technology which enhances the security of keys and other secret data.
"Crocus is pleased to reach another key milestone in its MLU technology roadmap," said
Crocus has pioneered Magnetic Logic Unit (MLU), a disruptive CMOS-based rugged magnetic technology. MLU offers important advantages in high speed, security and robust performance at lower cost for its broadening portfolio of embedded products and non-volatile memory blocks. It licenses its MLU architecture to TowerJazz and other foundries for integration in production processes. Crocus is gearing up to market the standalone, tamper-resistant MLU-based microcontrollers it is developing with
Founded in 2004, Crocus is led by a senior management team with high-level industry experience forged in Motorola, AMD,
