Cypress Semiconductor Introduces New Serial nvSRAMs with I2C and SPI Interfaces
Cypress Semiconductor introduced new serial non-volatile Static Random Access Memories (nvSRAMs) with I2C and SPI interfaces popular with metering, industrial and automotive applications. The new devices deliver operating frequencies up to 104MHZ for the SPI devices (3.4MHz for the I2C products) and are also offered with an optional integrated Real-Time Clock (RTC) that enables time-stamping of critical data to be backed-up.
Cypress’s nvSRAMs are manufactured on its S8™ 0.13-micron SONOS (Silicon Oxide Nitride Oxide Silicon) embedded non-volatile memory technology, enabling superior reliability and improved performance. nvSRAMs are ideal solutions for applications requiring absolute non-volatile data security such as Electronic Smart Meters, PLCs, Motor Drives, Electronic Data Recorders in Automobiles, RAID systems, Medical and Data Communication Systems.
The new Serial nvSRAM family includes 1-Mbit, 512-Kbit, 256-Kbit and 64-Kbit devices in multiple configurations. These devices feature superior performance with an industry-first SPI operating frequency up to 104MHz, SPI Modes 0 and 3, infinite READ/WRITE and RECALL cycles with 20 years of data retention. These devices are available in industry-standard small footprint 8-SOIC and 16-SOIC packages.
Cypress’s Serial nvSRAMs are available in I2C (1-Mbit: CY14B101J) and SPI (1-Mbit: CY14B101QA) interfaces in small footprint 8-SOIC and 16-SOIC packages. The devices are also available in 512-Kbit, 256-Kbit and 64-Kbit densities and with an optional integrated Real-Time Clock. The devices are currently sampling with high volume production beginning in April.
