Plymouth, UK, 2nd September 2019

Moortec Semiconductor Ltd, providers of complete In-Chip PVT (Process, Voltage and Temperature) Monitoring Subsystems announced today that InnoGrit has chosen Moortec’s 28nm thermal sensing solution to optimise performance and increase reliability for InnoGrit’s recently announced Shasta and Shasta+ SSD controllers aimed at client applications such as consumer electronics and IoT devices.

InnoGrit specialises in developing high-performance, energy-efficient technologies that reduce network traffic in relation to the storage and transport of large amounts of data required by next-generation applications, including Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud, and other big data systems. Storing and transporting AI data is highly intensive in terms of CPU activity which requires ever increasing levels of computing power.

This increase in computing activity requires greater amounts of power being supplied to the chip, which in turn leads to increased internal heat generation. Embedded, highly accurate in-chip monitoring of real time thermal conditions across the silicon die is vital to allow for the optimisation of activity versus power being supplied. By applying tightly controlled thermal guard-banding schemes, device lifetimes can be extended, enabling schemes for shut down protection, electromigration management and the avoidance of thermal runaway effects.
Dishi Lai, VP of SOC Engineering said, “Moortec’s highly accurate embedded thermal sensing solution has allowed us to manage temperature better, squeeze performance further, and increase the compelling position of our Data Acceleration Engine chip within the marketplace”.
