SPI serial EEPROM devices from Microchip

They enable customers to easily upgrade 32Kbit designs to 10MHz, while leveraging the company's high-endurance, quality, on-time delivery and short lead times.

PEEC architecture
The 25XX320A SPI serial EEPROMs promise fast byte- and page-level erase and write operations, as well as rapid data-access times. They are built on Microchip's proprietary PMOS Electrically Erasable Cell (PEEC) architecture, which enables high-density devices to be placed in small packages, while maintaining high endurance (10 lakh erase/write cycles), industry-leading retention time (200 years) and the ability to operate at high speeds even in harsh environments, such as in high-temperature automotive applications, the company said.

"The 25XX320A devices are a natural extension of our portfolio as customers continue to create higher-speed SPI designs in smaller packages," said Randy Drwinga, VP of Microchip's memory products division. "The devices fit easily into existing sockets and provide an instant upgrade path, as well as an excellent second source for customers wanting more speed at the 32Kbit memory density level."

Package options
The 25XX320A serial EEPROMs are offered in 8-pin PDIP, SOIC, MSOP packages, as well as standard and non-standard (rotated) TSSOP package pinouts. This enables customers to easily upgrade from previous versions, or drop the new devices into existing sockets designed for other 32Kbit SPI devices on the market, without board changes.

Samples and volume-production orders can be placed today.
