Microchip Technology Inc. has unleashed a 4Kb I2C Serial Presence Detect (SPD) EEPROM device. According to the company, the 34AA04 is geared to work with the next generation of Double Data Rate 4 (DDR4) SDRAM modules used in high-speed PCs and laptops, while also supporting older DDR2/3 platforms.

This device is designed for the price-competitive consumer products market and is capable of operation across a broad voltage range (1.7-3.6V). This device is JEDEC JC42.4 (EE1004-v) Serial Presence Detect (SPD) compliant and is designed to be compatible with DDR4 SDRAM modules. The 34AA04 includes reversible software write protection for each of four independent 128 x 8bit blocks and supports an SMBus compatible bus time out. The device features a page write capability of up to 16 bytes of data and three address pins allow up to eight devices on the same bus.


The 34AA04 is backward compatible with existing DDR2 and DDR3 SPD EEPROMs. To ensure backward compatibility, the memory array of the 34AA04 is divided into two separate 256-byte banks to overlay with the architecture of older SPD EEPROM devices. The 34AA04 serves a range of applications in the consumer-electronic market (e.g., PCs, laptops, graphic cards), among others.

The 34AA04 devices are available for sampling and volume production, in 8-pin SOIC, TDFN, UDFN, TSSOP and PDIP packages, starting at $0.20 each, in 10,000 unit quantities.
