Adesto Technologies

adestoAdesto Technologies Corporation develops and sells application-specific ultra-low power non-volatile memory products. The company’s non-volatile memory products include DataFlash, Fusion Flash, and Mavriq family products. It offers non-volatile memory products for Internet of things applications including Internet-connected devices in the consumer, industrial, medical, and wearables markets. The company sells its products directly to original equipment manufacturers and original design manufacturers. Adesto Technologies Corporation incorporated in 2006 and is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California.

Adesto Technologies is the leading developer of Conductive Bridge RAM (CBRAM) memory technology. CBRAM is an ultra low power, CMOS compatible non-volatile memory that is customized for a wide range of discrete and embedded markets. Adesto Technologies Corporation currently partners with a number of leading semiconductor companies in deployment of CBRAM technology in the market place.

In September 2012, Adesto expanded the company’s value-added memory business by acquiring Atmel’s DataFlash and Serial Flash product lines.

Adesto Technologies specializes in innovative semiconductor and embedded systems solutions. As of my last update in 2022, Adesto was a leading provider of advanced memory, including low-power memory, non-volatile memory, and analog mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs). The company was acquired by Dialog Semiconductor in 2020, which further expanded Dialog's portfolio in the IoT (Internet of Things) and Industry 4.0 markets.

Products and Solutions

  • Memory Solutions: Adesto focused on developing innovative memory technologies to address the needs of IoT, consumer, industrial, and communications markets.

  • Non-Volatile Memory (NVM): This includes technologies like Conductive Bridging RAM (CBRAM) and DataFlash, which offer low-power, high-performance storage solutions for various applications.

  • Analog Mixed-Signal ICs: In addition to memory, Adesto provided a range of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for industrial applications.

Acquisition by Dialog Semiconductor

  • Acquisition: In 2020, Dialog Semiconductor, a provider of power management, charging, and connectivity solutions, acquired Adesto. This acquisition aimed to strengthen Dialog's position in IoT and industrial markets by combining Adesto's memory technologies with Dialog's portfolio.

One of the standout technologies in Adesto's portfolio is Conductive Bridging RAM (CBRAM). CBRAM is a type of non-volatile memory that offers several advantages over traditional Flash memory, such as faster write speeds, lower power consumption, and high endurance. It has applications in IoT devices, AI accelerators, and more.
