Cypress’s new 64Mb and 128Mb NOR Flash memories with Quad SPI are designed to provide the high reliability and security for high-performance embedded systems that need to store critical data and operate at extended temperatures. Applications include Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), automotive instrument clusters and infotainment systems, industrial control and smart factory equipment, networking equipment, IoT applications, video game consoles and set-top boxes.
Key features of the new FL-L NOR Flash Memory devices include low power consumption, AEC-Q100 automotive-grade qualification, high read bandwidth for program execution, and fast program time at an extended temperature range.
Using small, uniform 4KB physical memory sectors allows the devices to optimally store program code and parametric data, according to the firm.
Both new devices are capable of 133-MHz Single Data Rate (SDR) and 66-MHz Double Data Rate (DDR) for bandwidth of 67 Mbps, and the 64Mb devices leverage a 54-MHz DDR mode to deliver read bandwidth of 54 Mbps, enabling fast program execution for high-performance systems.
Low standby current and a deep-power-down mode helps extend battery life for battery powered applications. The family offers AEC-Q100 automotive qualification and supports an extended temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.
The chips can increase customers’ manufacturing throughput with a fast 0.30-ms program time per 256 bytes. A 50-ms erase time enables new data to be written quickly.
Cypress’ FL064L 64Mb Quad SPI NOR Flash memory has started production in 24-ball BGA, 8-pin SOIC and 8-contact USON packages. The FL128L 128Mb device is sampling in 24-ball BGA, 8-pin SOIC and 8-contact WSON packages and will go into volume production in the second quarter of 2017.
