Flash memory chips for instrumentation transmitters, other electronic devices
Microchip Technology expands serial flash portfolio for new generations of low-power devices.
Microchip Technology Inc., a provider of microcontroller, analog, and Flash-IP solutions, has announced the newest member of its 25 series Serial Flash (SPI) memory family based on its proprietary SuperFlash technology. Microchip says the low-voltage (1.8 V), 8 Mbit device features extremely low standby power consumption of just 5 µA, active read current of 2 mA at 33 MHz, and is the highest-density product in the 25 series family. Featuring a 75 MHz clock frequency and operating temperature range of -40 to 85 °C, the device supports the latest generations of low-power electronic devices, such as tablet computers, Bluetooth headsets, Wi-Fi devices, and wireless instrumentation transmitters.
“Microchip now offers a full 1.8 V serial Flash memory product portfolio, with densities ranging from 512 Kbit to 8 Mbit,” said Randy Drwinga, vice president of Microchip’s Memory Products Group. “With its low power consumption and high-speed clock, the device enables longer battery life and extremely responsive systems.”
Microchip says the new SST25WF080 device is available in an 8-pin SOIC and also in an 8-bump die Z-Scale package. Samples and volume-production quantity orders can be ordered, today.
