16 Mbit FRAM for automotive and industry


"The memories operate from 1.71V to 3.6V, support bandwidth up to 54Mbps via a low-pin interface, and are available in a RoHS-compliant 24-ball FBGA package," according to the company. “These products combine low energy consumption with instant nonvolatile and unlimited read/write cycle life.”

They claimed that the read and write performance was equivalent to static RAM with a parallel interface and battery power. with an access time of 35 ns.

For automotive use only the larger 2 Mbit x 8 is available, AEC-Q100 Automotive Class 3 qualified in two versions from -40°C to +85°C with 40 MHz SPI interfaces for operation over 1.71 – 1.89 V or from 1.8 to 3.6 V. Data retention is described as “151 years”. Typical power consumption is 2.7 mA when operating at 40 MHz, 14 µA standby, 1.5 µA off, and 100 nA sleep.
