STMicroelectronics has released the new 1Mbit serial EEPROM with SPI bus in the tiny SO8N package with 3.8mm body width. The device is said to be the first SPI serial EEPROM in the market to squeeze this memory density in a small package.

Also offered in the wider SO8W housing, M95M01 is designed for the storage of fast-changing parameter data in consumer electronics products such as DTVs, DVD players and gaming, as well as in medical equipment, industrial, car infotainment and computer peripherals.

M95M01 is organized as 128Kbits x 8, and supports byte and page write modes with a fast write time of 256bytes in less than 5ms (less than 13?s/byte typical). The chips are specified to retain data for over 40yrs and offer write endurance of above 1 million write cycles. The operating temperature range for these serial EEPROMs is -40C to 85C and the memory operates over a wide 1.8-5.5V supply-voltage range for maximum flexibility.

The very small size of the SO8N package, coupled with its fast SPI interface, will offer new opportunities for manufacturers of DTVs, DVD players and medical technology to reduce the board space required in their applications, while increasing the amount of fast access memory available for setup parameters, tuning information, user preferences and other data.

Samples of M95M01 are available now in both the SO8N and SO8W RoHS-compliant packages. Pricing for the M95M01 in volume is $1.50.
