Starblaze Reaches Volume Production With Moortec’s Temperature Sensor


Moortec, providers of complete In-Chip Monitoring PVT
Subsystems have announced that Starblaze Technology have employed Moortec’s
28nm Temperature Sensor IP in their STAR1000 high-end consumer and starter
enterprise SSD controller which has recently reached volume production.

Starblaze Technology’s STAR1000 is an enterprise storage SSD
controller designed to deliver maximum flexibility and high performance with
minimal power consumption while meeting new security requirements for the SSD

"We looked at a number of different options for embedded
temperature monitoring but decided to choose Moortec’s solution as it not only
met but exceeded all our requirements for the project. The Moortec Temperature
sensor is highly accurate, easy to integrate and also silicon proven. Moortec
also offer a high level of technical support which made the whole process very
smooth" said Sky Shen, CEO, Starblaze Technology

Ramsay Allen, VP of Marketing at Moortec added “We are
excited to have been part of this project with Starblaze Technology who are now
a key player in the in the field of enterprise chip design with their work on
speeding up SSD applications and cloud based client services."

Moortec’s Temperature Sensor which Starblaze have employed
in the STAR1000 is a high precision low power junction temperature sensor that
has been developed to be embedded into ASIC designs. It can be used for a
number of different implementations including Dynamic Frequency and Voltage
Scaling (DVFS), device lifetime enhancement, device characterisation and
thermal profiling.

To meet the strict design targets, Starblaze Technology were
looking for a selection of IP from highly experienced silicon proven vendors.
After evaluating various solutions from a number of providers, Starblaze were
confident that Moortec’s high accuracy highly featured Temperature Monitoring
IP was the perfect fit for the design and offered everything they needed to
meet the power and performance optimisation requirements for their SSD
