STMicroelectronics has announced that all its serial EEPROM devices, from 2Kbit to 64Kbit densities, and from both the SPI and I²C interface series, are now available in the tiny 2-by-3mm MLP8 package, enabling significant space and cost savings for portable consumer and communications products.

ST claims to be the first to market a comprehensive "low-density" serial EEPROM range in this package size. The ultrathin (0.6mm), fine-pitch, dual flat MLP delivers improvements compared to other packages, and the product families offer footprint compatibility throughout the 2-64Kbit density range.

The tiny memory chips in the M24 (I²C bus interface) and M95 (SPI bus interface) families operate over a 1.8-5.5V supply-voltage range, and are specified to function for more than 1 million write cycles and to retain data for more than 40 years. They are suitable for compact CE applications, such as digital cameras, camcorders, MP3 players, remote controls and games consoles, as well as in communications products including cell phones, handsets and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and wireless-LAN cards.

All serial EEPROM devices in the new packaging size are available in volume, except the 64Kbit I²C variant, which will enter volume production in 2H 2007. Samples of all devices are available.
