PARIS Ramtron International Corp. said its FM25V10-G, a 1-Mbit, 2.0-3.6V serial F-RAM memory device, has been upgraded to AEC-Q100 Grade 3 standard, the automotive-grade qualification established by the Automotive Electronic Council’s Stress Test Qualification for Integrated Circuits.
Ramtron said its FM25V10-G is part of its V-Family nonvolatile F-RAM memory, which features an operating voltage range of 2.0 to 3.6-volts.
The FM25V10-G is a 1-Mb serial SPI device that has an operating current of 3.0 mA (Idd at 40MHz) in an industry standard 8-pin SOIC package.
Ramtron specified that the product operates at full bus speed of 40MHz, features NoDelay writes, virtually unlimited read/write cycles, and low power consumption. The device is a drop-in replacement for 1-Mb serial Flash and serial EEPROM memories in automotive, industrial controls, metering, medical, military, gaming and computing applications.
Ramtron said it is sampling the FM25V10-G in a RoHS-compliant, 8-pin SOIC package, and unit pricing starts at $5.05 for the FM25V10-G and $5.19 for the optional unique serial number device (FM25VN10-G) in quantities of 10K.
