Cypress introduces a 4Mb serial F-RAM
Published: 30 April 2015 - Marianne Evans
Cypress Semiconductor has introduced a family of 4Mb serial Ferroelectric Random Access Memories (F-RAMs), which are the industry’s highest density serial F-RAMs. The 4Mb serial F-RAMs feature a 40-Mhz Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), a 2.0V to 3.6V operating voltage range and are available in industry-standard, RoHS-compliant package options. All Cypress F-RAMs provide 100-trillion read/write cycle endurance with 10-year data retention at 85°C and 151 years at 65°C.
Cypress F-RAMs are ideal solutions for applications requiring continuous and frequent high-speed reading and writing of data with absolute data security. The 4Mb serial F-RAM family addresses mission-critical applications such as industrial controls and automation, industrial metering, multifunction printers, test and measurement equipment and medical wearables.
“Mission-critical systems require high-performance memories that can capture data instantly and reliably on power loss,” said Rainer Hoehler, vice president of the Nonvolatile Products Business Unit at Cypress. “Cypress’s new 4Mb F-RAM family delivers absolute data security with the industry’s highest-density serial F-RAM devices.”
