Microchip expands Serial Quad I/O family with 3V 32-Mbit SQI serial Flash memory
Microchip just announced that it has expanded its Serial Quad I/O (SQI) Flash memory family with the new 3V, 32-Mbit SQI Flash memory, SST26VF032. Building on the success of the SST26 Series family, the 4-bit, multiplexed I/O SST26VF032 features an enhanced serial-interface architecture that provides low-power, high-performance and flexible data/code-protection schemes. With an 80 MHz operating frequency and a specialised instruction set, the SST26VF032 targets execute-in-place (XIP) applications, allowing programmes to be stored and executed directly from the Flash memory. This increases overall system performance without the need for code shadowing on a RAM device. The SST26VF032's compact 6 mm x 5 mm, 8-pin WSON and 8-pin SOIC package options reduce board space and lower system costs. This device is ideal for a wide variety of applications, such as mobile handsets, DVD and Blu-ray™ players, printers, digital TVs, network appliances, GPS devices, DSL and cable modems, smart meters and more.
