High-performance SPI NOR Flash memory ICs surpass AEC-Q100 reliability tests

12-06-2015 | Solid State | Semiconductors

Solid State Supplies (SSS) has announced availability of a new series of AEC-Q100-certified SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) multiple-I/O NOR Flash memory ICs from AMIC Technology. Specified for operation over the –40C to +125C temperature range, the addition of AEC-Q100 certification for the AMIC A25L series of 3V SPI NOR Flash devices makes them ideal for automotive and other industrial applications. Furthermore, a key feature of the series is that these SPI products are based on a robust and well-proven 90nm process technology platform, rather than being implemented in the latest 65nm Flash technologies. This means the delivery of high levels of reliability and long-term sustainability for highly demanding application supply chains. The AMIC SPI Flash series is available in a number of memory densities ranging from 512K up to 64Mbit, and in a range of package styles including SOP, DIP, USON, WSON and BGA. Electrical characteristics of the SPI series include: maximum clock rate of 100MHz; 2.7 to 3.6V single supply voltage for read, erase and program operations; and standby currents ranging from 15µA down to 2µA for the 64Mbit devices, says the company.
