Cypress Introduces the Industry’s First 4Mb Serial F-RAM

Last Updated: April 29, 2015
New F-RAM™ Expands the Density Range of the Most Energy-Efficient Nonvolatile RAMs for Mission-Critical Data Storage
 
 
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 29, 2015 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today introduced a family of 4Mb serial Ferroelectric Random Access Memories (F-RAMs™), which are the industry’s highest density serial F-RAMs. The 4Mb serial F-RAMs feature a 40-Mhz Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), a 2.0V to 3.6V operating voltage range and are available in industry-standard, RoHS-compliant package options. All Cypress F-RAMs provide 100-trillion read/write cycle endurance with 10-year data retention at 85˚C and 151 years at 65˚C. 
 
Cypress F-RAMs are ideal solutions for applications requiring continuous and frequent high-speed reading and writing of data with absolute data security. The 4Mb serial F-RAM family addresses mission-critical applications such as industrial controls and automation, industrial metering, multifunction printers, test and measurement equipment and medical wearables.
 
“Mission-critical systems require high-performance memories that can capture data instantly and reliably on power loss,” said Rainer Hoehler, Vice President of the Nonvolatile Products Business Unit at Cypress. “Cypress’s new 4Mb F-RAM family delivers absolute data security with the industry’s highest-density serial F-RAM devices.”
 
Availability
The 4Mb serial F-RAMs are sampling today in industry-standard 8EIAJ and 8TDFN packages, with production expected in the fourth quarter of 2015. Learn more about the 4Mb F-RAM family at www.cypress.com/4MbFRAM
 
About Cypress F-RAMs
Cypress offers a broad portfolio of F-RAM products with densities from 4Kb to 4Mb and supply voltages from 2.0V to 5.5V. Cypress F-RAMs feature virtually unlimited endurance of one-hundred trillion read and write cycles, making them an ideal solution for write-intensive applications. F-RAM is the industry's most energy efficient nonvolatile RAM solution; the F-RAM cell is inherently low power and operates without a charge pump. Cypress F-RAM is an ideal solution for applications requiring high-performance, high-reliability, low-cost nonvolatile memory solutions, including automotive, industrial, computing, networking, smart meter, and multifunction printer applications.
