Micron Technology Inc. has announced that it is extending its line of automotive memory products to reach an extended temperature range of -40C to 105C, critical for keeping the memory operating under extreme heat conditions.

Today's vehicles feature a growing variety of entertainment, convenience and advanced safety options including navigation, telematics and driver assistance. These features require automotive manufacturers to design more technologyinto less spaceto keep the systems running. With the additional devices packed into a vehicle, these clusters of technology generate additional heat, creating a challenging environment to maintain operation. Micron promises to address this challenge with the extended temperature range of its new automotive temperature (AT) memory products, which promise outstanding performance and reliability.

Micron's new AT memory products include PSRAM, SDR, DDR2 and Mobile DRAM components and come in an array of organizations, densities and packages. Specifically, a key advantage of the company's Mobile DRAM is its x32 configuration, enabling a low-cost option by using fewer components for wide-bus architectures. Micron's AT memory products are also well-suited for applications that require an extended temperature range, such as mobile and industrial where heat is often an issue with stacking in multichip packages.

Micron's line of AT memory parts are now in mass production.
