Micron Technology Inc. has announced that it is expanding its line of automotive memory products to reach an extended temperature range of – 40 to -105 degrees Celsius. This is in order for automotive memory to retain its operation during extreme heat conditions. These new products adds to Micron's existing line of automotive memory and storage products, with temperature ranging from 40 to + 85 degrees Celsius, powering some of the world's most famous in-car electronic applications.

Today's vehicles feature a growing variety of entertainment, convenience, and advanced safety options including navigation, telematics and driver assistance. These features require automotive manufacturers to design more technology – into less space – to keep the systems running. With the additional devices packed into a vehicle, these clusters of technology generate additional heat, creating a challenging environment to maintain operation. As an answer to this challenge, the extended temperature range of Micron's new automotive temperature (AT) memory products offers outstanding performance and proven reliability for products designed to operate under these conditions.

"The keys to success in automotive electronic design are ensuring product longevity and reliability, which we accomplish through technology innovation and market commitment," said Richard Chaney, Senior Manager of Automotive Marketing for Micron. "As evidenced by our leadership in supplying our customers with the industry's highest automotive temperature range memory products and the latest Gartner ranking, we remain steadfast in our dedication to the automotive industry."

Micron's new AT memory products include PSRAM, SDR, DDR2, and Mobile DRAM components and come in an array of organisations, densities, and packages. Specifically, a key advantage of Micron's Mobile DRAM is its x32 configuration, enabling a low-cost option by using fewer components for wide-bus architectures. Micron's AT memory products are also suited for mobile and industrial applications that require an extended temperature range, where heat is often an issue with stacking in multi-chip packages.

Micron's line of AT memory parts is now in mass production. Additional information on Micron's AT memory products, plus its broader line of automotive memory and storage technology can be found at the company's website.
