Numonyx B.V. has expanded its line of NOR flash memory to include the 5V Axcell M29F flash memory devices suited for both automotive and embedded customers. At densities of 16-, 8-, 4- and 2Mbit, these devices will bring fast memory execution as well as flexible and stable NOR flash memory supply for automotive, military, factory automation and avionics applications.

Automotive and embedded applications require high quality as well as high reliability and stability of supplysometimes for up to five years or more. Yet, as most memory suppliers press toward newer and newer technology, production of these critical products is often discontinued, potentially leaving embedded and automotive segments that include thousands of products without critical memory supply, or a path to drop-in compatible replacement products. The 5V, 110nm Numonyx Axcell M29F is a robust design solution that uses a long-standing, stable process technology and meets the high quality standards of the market.

"Customer demand for 5V memory solutions remains a significant business in automotive, industrial and telecom segments," says Glen Hawk, Numonyx VP and general manager of the embedded business group. "The availability of the Numonyx Axcell M29F strongly confirms our focus on key embedded segments and commitment to long-term customer support."

"Infineon has established its C166 microcontroller architecture very well in the automotive and industrial market with over 500 million pieces soldeither with embedded flash like in its new XE166 family or with external NOR flash working with its C166 family," said J�rgen Hoika, senior marketing manager for microcontrollers at Infineon. "With the introduction of 5V NOR flash memory solutions, Numonyx brings continuity of supply for all 5V-powered automotive and industrial application platforms using Infineon's C166 family."

The Numonyx Axcell M29F will be available with automotive-grade solutions qualified with AEC-Q100 specification to operate at extreme temperatures of -40C to 85C and -40C to 125C for both automotive and industrial market segments. It will be offered in TSOP48 and SO44 packages, with leaded and lead free options, and as known-good-die solutions.

Initial samples for customer evaluation will be available in June, with full product qualification and production in September.
