Featuring an extended voltage and larger temperature range, Microchip has announced a family of automotive-grade NOR Flash products. The SST26VF family is available in 16, 32 and 64Mb densities and operates at Automotive Grade 2 and 3, extending the operating voltage from 2.7 down to 2.3V and temperature up to +105°C.
The SST26VF offers numerous features and benefits achieved with SST’s proprietary, high-performance SuperFlash technology, which significantly improves reliability and performance, including the industry’s fastest erase times, whilst reducing power consumption for high-bandwidth, compact designs. The SST26VF family consumes 15mA in typical high-speed operating conditions, which benefits automotive applications working to meet growing energy-saving requirements.
The robustness of the SuperFlash technology memory cell brings high endurance to rewrite cycling and excellent data retention with extremely low failure rate and good performance at high temperatures. All of these features are critical parameters to meet the vigorous requirements for automotive quality and reliability. The product also supports the long life cycle required by the automotive industry.
