Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has rolled out a 256Mb NOR Flash memory with a Quad Serial Peripheral Interface (Quad SPI). The FL-L NOR Flash device combines the Quad SPI with a 4KB uniform sector size to deliver what the company describes as the industry's highest read bandwidth and fastest programme time while enabling a small PCB layout.

Using small, uniform physical memory sectors allows the device to optimally store programme code and parametric data. The device is intended for high-performance applications such as video game consoles, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), automotive instrument clusters and infotainment systems, networking equipment and set-top boxes.

High-performance system designs require the highest read bandwidth for programme execution, a small low-pin-count package and the fastest programme and sector erase times. Cypress' 256Mb FL-L Quad SPI NOR Flash memory leverages a 66MHz DDR mode to deliver read bandwidth of 66MB/s and enable the fastest programme execution for high-performance systems, stated the company. The device is available in small 48mm2 packages that save board space and simplify layout. The device provides a 0.30ms programme time per 256 bytes, increasing manufacturing throughput, and a 50ms sector erase time, enabling new data to be written quickly. The memories provide low standby current and a deep-power-down mode that extends battery life for battery powered applications. The FL-L NOR Flash family offers AEC-Q100 automotive qualification and supports an extended temperature range of -40C to 125C.

Cypress' 256Mb FL-L Quad SPI NOR Flash memory is sampling in space-saving 24-ball BGA, 16-pin SOIC and 8-contact WSON packages. Production will start in 1Q16.
