Jul 12, 2016

CHANDLER, Ariz., July 12, 2016 — Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP), a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, through its Silicon Storage Technology (SST) subsidiary, announced today qualification and availability of SST’s low-mask-count embedded SuperFlash® non-volatile memory (NVM) on GLOBALFOUNDRIES' 130 nm BCDLite® technology platform. SST’s embedded SuperFlash memory solution requires the addition of only four masking steps to GLOBALFOUNDRIES’s BCDLite technology that provides power, microcontroller (MCU) and industrial IC designers with a cost-effective, high-endurance embedded Flash solution. In high-volume power applications such as battery charging (5V-30V), the GLOBALFOUNDRIES 130 nm BCDLite platform paired with the SST SuperFlash embedded memory capability enables advanced battery monitoring that accurately gauges the age and health of the battery.p>
