Microchip Technology Inc. announced an expansion of its multi-purpose flash plus (MPF+) memory portfolio, with the introduction of the SST39VF80XC and SST39VF160XC. The SST39VF80XC offers 8 Mbit of memory, while the SST39VF160XC offers 16 Mbit of memory. Manufactured with high-performance CMOS SuperFlash® technology, these low-power, 3V, x16 parallel NOR Flash devices feature active current as low as 5 mA (typical) and standby current of 3 microamperes (typical). These devices feature fixed program and erase times that do not deteriorate over time. The SST39VF80XC offers fast, 7 microseconds program time (typical) and access times of 55 ns and 70 ns.
Both devices offer industry-compatible command sets, and are well suited for use in applications such as consumer electronics (e.g. Bluetooth® headsets, camera modules and gaming peripherals), automotive (e.g. car infotainment) and industrial (e.g. printers, alarms and meters). For applications that require reliable, low-power memory in compact packages, these new MPF+ devices are also available in an ultra-compact, 4 mm x 6 mm, 48-pin WFBGA package, which is the industry’s smallest footprint for packaged devices, in these densities.
