Microchip's new Multipurpose Flash Plus devices deliver high speed, low power, small footprint for NOR Flash apps
Microchip Technology Inc. has expanded its Multipurpose Flash Plus (MPF+) portfolio with four new compact 512K x16 Parallel Flash CMOS devices: the SST39VF401C, SST39F402C, SST39LF401C and the SST39LF402C. Manufactured with high-performance CMOS SuperFlash technology, these low-power, 2.7-3.6V, x16 Parallel NOR Flash devices boast a split-gate design and thick-oxide tunneling injector for superior reliability and design simplicity. All four devices help reduce engineering design cycles, and improve overall product performance and responsiveness.
The SuperFlash technology featured within the SST39VF401C/402C and SST39LF401C/402C guarantees fixed program and erase times that do not deteriorate over time. The devices deliver active current as low as 5 mA (typical) and standby current of 3 microamperes (typical) to extend battery life in accessories, sensors and battery-operated equipment.
The SST39VF40XC devices start at $0.69 each in 10,000-unit quantities. Available in 12 mm x 20 mm 48-lead TSOP, 6 mm x 6 mm, 0.8 mm pitch 48-ball TFBGA, and 4 mm x 6 mm 0.5 mm pitch 48-ball WFBGA packages. Samples and volume production are available today.
