GenevaSTMicroelectronics is sampling a 1-Mbit serial EEPROM with SPI bus in the tiny SO8N package with 150-mil (3.8mm) body width.
Also offered in the wider SO8W, the M95M01 is intended for the storage of fast-changing parameter data in consumer electronics products such as digital TVs (DTV) DVD players and gaming, as well as in medical equipment, industrial, car infotainment and computer peripherals.
The M95M01 is organized as 128-Kbits x 8, and supports Byte and Page Write modes with a fast Write time of 256 Bytes in less than 5ms (less than 13- microseconds/byte typical). The chips are specified to retain Data for more than 40 years, and offer Write endurance of more than 1 million Write cycles.
The operating temperature range for these serial EEPROMs is -40°C to +85°C, and the memory operates over a wide 1.8V to 5.5V supply-voltage range.
Pricing: In volume is $1.50.
Availability: Sampling with volume production planned for July 2007.
