The Ideal Memory for Code Storage

NOR Flash is the ideal memory for code storage in embedded systems due to its fast random read performance which supports XIP (eXecute In Place) functionality. With fast read performance, many host controllers can execute code directly from the NOR Flash device, without needing to first copy the code to a RAM.

Quality and Support

Cypress offers a wide range of AEC-Q100-qualified Serial NOR Flash products with support for temperatures up to +125°C. PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) support is available for automotive customers. Cypress complements all its products with world class quality and support.
