Semiconductors and Semiconductor Equipment
Company Overview of SuVolta, Inc.
SuVolta, Inc. develops and licenses complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) semiconductor technologies that reduce the power consumption of integrated circuits (ICs). It offers PowerShrink, a low-power CMOS platform with deeply depleted channel (DDC) transistor technology, and DDC-optimized circuits and design techniques that enables semiconductor companies to cut chip power in half. The company’s platform lowers power consumption without sacrificing performance in IC products, including processors, SRAMs, and system on chips. SuVolta, Inc. serves semiconductor companies and wafer foundries worldwide. The company was formerly known as DSM Solutions Inc. and changed its name to SuVolta...

SuVolta, Inc. Key Developments
SuVolta, Inc. and Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited Announce Volume Production of the First Deeply Depleted Channel Transistor-Based Chip, MB86S22AA Milbeaut Image Processor Integrated Circuit
Sep 4 13
SuVolta, Inc. and Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited announced volume production of the first Deeply Depleted Channel™ (DDC) transistor-based chip, MB86S22AA Milbeaut® image processor integrated circuit (IC). Manufactured on ‘CS250S’ technology, which combines Fujitsu Semiconductor's 55nm process with DDC technology, the IC has 30% lower power consumption and roughly twice the processing performance compared to the existing products, despite the new product having considerably more circuits with enhanced processing performance. MB86S22AA represents the culmination of a successful joint development program between the companies. Together, the companies are advancing the capabilities of ultra-low-power, high-performance products. Fujitsu Semiconductor is SuVolta's first licensee of the DDC technology. Since the collaboration was announced in June 2011, the companies have successfully brought up the DDC technology at the 65nm and 55nm nodes, meeting all production, yield and reliability requirements. MB86S22AA is the latest of the Milbeaut line of image processors which has established a wide-ranging track record in a host of applications from digital SLR cameras to smartphones.
SuVolta's DDC Technology Advancements Further Reduce Power Consumption and Increase Processor Performance
Jul 23 13
SuVolta, Inc. announced a series of new milestones, advancing its position as a technological innovator. The achievements further validate the company's approach to solving the power problem at the heart of nearly all electronic systems. The first announcement is the ARM Cortex-M series processor manufactured with SuVolta's Deeply Depleted Channel(TM) (DDC) transistor technology on a 65nm bulk planar CMOS process that shows significant processor speed gains with associated power reduction. Second, SuVolta and United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC) are announcing that the two companies are working jointly on the development of a 28nm low-power process technology that integrates SuVolta's DDC technology into UMC's High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) high-performance mobile (HPM) process to target mobile applications. When compared to an identical ARM Cortex-M0 processor manufactured in the conventional 65nm process, with a 1.2V supply voltage, the DDC transistor-based ARM implementation operating at 0.9V demonstrates the benefits: 50% lower total power consumption at matched 350MHz operating speed. 35% increased operating speed (performance) at matched power. 55% increased operating speed when operated at matched supply voltage.
SuVolta, Inc. Appoints Louis Parrillo as Chief Operating Officer
Jul 23 13
SuVolta, Inc. announced the appointment of Dr. Louis Parrillo as the company's Chief Operating Officer (COO). As COO, Dr. Parrillo will oversee technology and circuit design programs and resources, working on solutions with leading logic and memory manufacturers, and with fabless semiconductor companies. A renowned semiconductor veteran, Dr. Parrillo has a proven track record in implementing and obtaining results on complex programs both in large companies and start-ups. Dr. Parrillo joins SuVolta from Rambus where he was vice president, chief technologist, NVM/Storage Division.
