Automotive NOR Flash products support voltages down to 2.3V
Microchip Technology Inc. has unleashed automotive-grade NOR Flash products with wider voltage and a larger temperature range. The SST26VF SQI product family is an extended-voltage Serial Quad I/O Flash device targeting extended automotive temperature grades.
The devices are available in densities of 16Mbit, 32Mbit and 64Mbit, and operates at Automotive Grade 2 and 3 and extends the operating voltage from 2.7V down to 2.3V and temperature up to 105°C.
The SST26VF offers numerous features and benefits achieved with SST's proprietary, high-performance SuperFlash technology, which significantly improves performance and reliability, and reduces power consumption for high-bandwidth, compact designs. The SST26VF family consumes 15mA in typical high-speed operating conditions, which benefits automotive applications working to meet growing energy saving requirements.
The robustness of the SuperFlash technology memory cell brings high endurance to rewrite cycling and excellent data retention with extremely low failure rate and good performance at high temperatures, stated the company. All of these features are critical parameters to meet the vigorous requirements for automotive quality and reliability. The product also supports the long life cycle required by the automotive industry.
