Macronix International has announced a new high performance Quad SPI NOR flash for the Xilinx 7 Series and UltraScale FPGAs. These FPGA’s are geared towards the aerospace and defense, industrial, and public safety applications. The Macronix MX66U51235FME is the industry’s first commercially available extended temperature range product to meet the grueling demands of the Aerospace and Defense (A&D) market.
The Macronix MX66U51235FME is a 512Mb density Quad SPI NOR flash device. It was specifically developed to support a growing number of applications that require high density NOR with 1.8V operating voltage and an extended temperature range from -55°C to 125°C (designated by the “E” in the part number).
“Macronix is a leader in Non-Volatile Memory and ranked #2 in the NOR Flash market by independent sources a fact that is being increasingly recognised by ecosystem leaders. This partnership with Xilinx demonstrates our commitment to our ecosystem partners and our advanced engineering capabilities,” said Ful-Loug Ni, Vice President, Marketing, Macronix. “We look forward to further cooperation with Xilinx to create innovative & new memory architectures in the future.”
“Macronix provides configuration flash memory devices that are a companion device for our Defense-grade (XQ) solutions,” said Yousef Khalilollahi, Senior Director of the aerospace and defense business, Xilinx. “Macronix’s memory solutions provide the right technology, quality and reliability required by our Aerospace and Defense customers.”
