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

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
