Adds New Package And Temperature Range Options To Industry leading High density F ram Portfolio
September 18, 2014
CYPRESS SEMICONDUCTOR CORP ("CY-Q") - Adds New Package And Temperature Range Options To - Industry-leading High-density F-ram Portfolio Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced the enhancement of its Ferroelectric Random Access Memory (F-RAM(TM)) portfolio with a 44-pin TSOPII package option for its 1 Mb parallel asynchronous interface F-RAM and an extended temperature range of -40˚C to +105˚C for its 2 Mb Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) F-RAM. The new package option enables pin-to-pin replacement for standard battery-backed SRAM solutions for mission-critical applications in industrial automation, computing, networking and automotive electronics. F-RAM's inherent nonvolatility provides instant data capture and retention for one hundred years with no batteries. Eliminating the need for a battery reduces system cost and complexity. The extended temperature range for the 2 Mb SPI F-RAM addresses the challenging operating conditions faced in many high-performance applications in harsh environments.
