SAN JOSE, CA -- Cypress Semiconductor Corp. introduces a 1.8V, 64Mb NOR Flash memory with a Quad Serial Peripheral Interface (Quad SPI). The newest device in the Cypress FS-S NOR Flash family combines the Quad SPI interface with the industry's highest read bandwidth and fastest program time while enabling a small PCB layout. The device is ideal for high-performance applications, such as video game consoles, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), automotive instrument clusters and infotainment systems, networking equipment and set-top boxes.
High-performance system designs require the highest read bandwidth for program execution, a small, low-pin-count package, and the fastest program and sector erase times. The 64Mb FS-S Quad SPI NOR Flash memory leverages an 80-MHz Double Data Rate (DDR) mode to deliver read bandwidth of 80 MBps and enables the fastest program execution for high-performance systems. Available in industry-standard compact 8-lead SOIC and 24-ball BGA packages, the device saves board space and simplifies layout. The device provides a 0.475-ms program time per 512 bytes, increasing manufacturing throughput and enabling new data to be written quickly. For battery-powered applications, the memory extends battery life by providing low standby current and a deep-power-down mode. The FS-S NOR Flash family offers AEC-Q100 automotive qualification and supports an extended temperature range of -40 degrees C to +125 degrees C.
"Our new 1.8V, 64Mb FS-S NOR Flash device has a low pin count that is ideal for space-constrained wireless applications, and it is optimized for other high-performance applications, expanding the reach of the family," said Hiro Ino, Senior Director of the NOR Flash Product Family at Cypress. "This product marks a continuation of Cypress's strategy to expand our high-performance memory portfolio and our NOR Flash market leadership."
Cypress's 64Mb FS-S Quad SPI NOR Flash memory is now sampling in 8-lead SOIC and 24-ball BGA packages. Production will start in the second quarter of 2016. To learn more, go to http://www.cypress.com
