SST25WF080 serial flash memory

Extending its 25 series serial flash (SPI) memory family based on the SuperFlash technology, Microchip Technology Inc. has introduced the SST25WF080 serial flash memory device.

The low-voltage (1.8V), 8Mb device features extremely low standby power consumption of just 5?A, active read current of 2mA (typ., at 33MHz) and is the highest-density product in the 25 series 1.8V SPI family. Featuring a 75MHz clock frequency and operating temperature range of -40 to +85C, the device supports the latest generations of low-power electronic devices, such as tablet computers, HDDs, Bluetooth headsets, Wi-Fi and wireless-control devices, as well as camera modules.

"Microchip is now the only company in the industry to offer a full 1.8V serial flash memory product portfolio, with densities ranging from 512Kbit to 8Mbit," said Randy Drwinga, VP of Microchip's memory products group. "With its low power consumption and high-speed clock, the device enables longer battery life and extremely responsive systems in today's consumer electronic devices."

The SST25WF080 device is available in an 8-pin SOIC package for $0.95 each, in 10,000-unit quantities; and also in an 8-bump die Z-Scale package. Samples and volume-production quantity orders can be ordered, today.
