Infineon Technologies AG has announced the availability of 8- and 16Mbit serial FRAMs for the automotive and industrial sectors, claiming these are the highest capacity such devices.
The expected application for the FRAMs is data-logging in harsh operating environments.
The memories operate from 1.71 to 3.6V, support up to 54Mbytes per second of data throughput over a low-pin count interface, and are available in a RoHS-compliant, 24-ball FBGA package.
The read and write performance of these serial memories is equivalent to parallel-interface, battery-backed SRAMs with 35ns access time.
“With the increase of automation and the rapid growth of connected sensors, datalogging requirements are driving the need for higher density memories that capture data reliably and instantly in the event of a power loss,” said Ramesh Chettuvetty, who heads the RAM product line within Infineon’s automotive division.
Industrial-grade 8- and 16Mbit FRAMs can be ordered in a 24-ball FBGA package and are capable of supporting operating temperatures up to 105°C.
The AEC-Q100 qualified, automotive-grade 16Mbit devices can also be ordered presently and are available in the same 24-ball FBGA package.
