Compact, Low-Power Devices Meet Demanding NOR Flash Market Requirements
Microchip Technology 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). Besides offering exceptional reliability, 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 ideal 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 × 6 mm, 48-pin WFBGA package, which is the industry’s smallest footprint for packaged devices, in these densities.
Pricing & Availability
The SST39VF80XC starts at $0.68 each, in a 6 mm x 8 mm 48-pin BGA package, in 10,000-unit quantities. The device is also available in 4 mm × 6 mm 48-pin WFBGA and 12 mm × 20 mm 48-pin TSOP packages. The SST39VF160XC starts at $0.98 each, in a 6 mm × 8 mm 48-pin BGA package, in 10,000-unit quantities. The device is also available in 4 mm × 6 mm 48-pin WFBGA and 12 mm × 20 mm 48-pin TSOP packages.
