I would disagree @goafrit. $86M seems cheap to me and FRAM technology holds lots of promise. I don't think Samsung has FRAM development in house although I could be wrong...Kris

Psoc is uses flash to store code and system configuration. Using fram instead of flash could enable: 1. lower power 2. instead of optimizing memory size for 2 both ram and flash size,use one memory and let designer use it as it will. this will enable smaller size, less need for psoc variations and easier and more varied use. 3. write speed is much faster for fram, which enables faster reconfiguration. might enable better ways to design stuff. 4. higher fram endurace.

Not a smart move. Non-volatile memory business is Samsung world and in this commoditized sector, going in is simply not a good move. Also, Ramtron does not have great IPs to start with.

Ramtron, you need to resist with all your might. You do not want to become part of Cypress. Run for your life! That place is weird and a total misery pit.

Would a PSoC with Ramtron technology be a compelling product? Where else would Cypress use FRAM technology (other than just memory chips)?
