Industry's first 4Mb serial F-RAM targets mission-critical data storage applications

30-04-2015 | Cypress | New Technologies

Cypress Semiconductor has introduced a family of 4Mb serial ferroelectric
random access memories (F-RAMs) - the industry's highest-density serial
F-RAMs, says the company.

The 4Mb serial F-RAMs feature a 40Mhz Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), a
2V 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 85C and 151 years
at 65C.

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, says the
company.

"Mission-critical systems require high-performance memories that can capture
data instantly and reliably on power loss," said Rainer Hoehler, vice
president, Nonvolatile Products Business Unit, Cypress. "Cypress's new 4Mb
F-RAM family delivers absolute data security with the industry's
highest-density serial F-RAM devices."

The 4Mb serial F-RAMs are sampling today in industry-standard 8EIAJ and
8TDFN packages, with production expected in the fourth quarter of 2015.
