Microchip Technology Inc. today announced an expansion to its SPI Serial Flash Memory portfolio, with the introduction of the SST25WF020A, SST25WF040B and SST25WF080B devices. These devices offer 2-, 4- and 8-Mbit of memory and are manufactured with Microchip's high-performance SuperFlash® technology and NOR Flash cell architecture for superior quality and reliability.
With a low-operating voltage range from 1.65 to 1.95V, extremely low-power consumption, small-footprint, and low-profile packaging, these SPI Flash memory devices excel in a variety of applications. The memory is partitioned into uniform 4 Kbyte sectors and 64 Kbyte blocks, offering flexible erase capabilities and seamless partitioning for program and data code in the same memory block. These devices enable designers to improve product performance and lower system cost during the design cycles and manufacturing. The low-voltage range provides designers with a low-voltage option on the power-supply voltage for their chipsets and board designs, and reduces overall power consumption, making these Flash memory devices especially well suited for battery-operated accessories, portable medical devices, and Bluetooth®/Wi-Fi®-enabled devices such as remotes, headsets and hearing aids.
