Spansion Inc. has started sampling the S25FL128P, a 128Mbit SPI flash memory device produced using 90nm MirrorBit technology. With a 104MHz SPI bus, the device is suitable for applications requiring high-density devices, such as high-end printers, FPGAs, networking equipment and STBs.

The S25FL128P maintains packages with consistent pinoutsthe Universal Footprintthat allow users to migrate from lower to higher density serial flash memory without having to alter board layouts. The Universal Footprint gives manufacturers the efficiency to develop products based on a single platform and leverage their hardware and software designs across multiple product lines.

The company also offers x8 parallel mode to speed up factory programming throughput and lower costs. The S25FL128P is available in industry-standard 16-pin SOIC as well as WSON 6x8 packages, which are RoHS compliant, and the option of standard materials.

"With the 128Mbit MirrorBit SPI solution, manufacturers can take advantage of the design capabilities and system cost benefits of high-performance, high-density SPI flash memory and tap into new market opportunities," said Sylvia Summers, executive vice president of Spansion's consumer, smart card and industrial division, in a statement.

The S25FL128P is the latest member of the MirrorBit SPI FL family, which also includes products from 4Mbit through 64Mbit. All devices are based on Spansion's two-bit-per-cell MirrorBit technology and feature fast read speeds of 50MHz (104MHz for the 128Mbit) for faster boot times on embedded products.
