OctaFlash memory powers instant-on applications

Integrated device manufacturer in the Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) market, Macronix International, has announced the new Ultra-OctaFlash, following its initial launch in 2015. The new ultra-high performance OctaFlash Memory can perform at an operational frequency of 250MHz with 500MB/s read throughput, which it claims to be the fastest in the industry. This new ultra-high performance solution is designed to meet the growing demand for 'instant-on' performance and real time system responsiveness in automotive, industrial and consumer applications.

With smartphone adoption on the rise, consumers now expect their modern electronic and digital devices, which are equipped with a graphical user interface, to perform with ultra-fast response times and be portable with instant connectivity. This supposedly market leading performance from the new ultra-high performance OctaFlash Memory can help system architects meet their customer expectations.

Furthermore, in the era of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Vehicles (IoV), the critical requirements for a successful memory solution are memory size, power consumption, and performance; all of which can be realised by the new ultra-high performance OctaFlash Memory.

Macronix’s newly launched ultra-high performance OctaFlash (x8 I/O) Memory can operate at frequencies up to 250MHz with a fast latency access time of 80ns, sequential byte reads as fast as 2ns and a maximum read throughput of 500MB/s, which Macronix claims to be the fastest in the industry. The new ultra-performance OctaFlash Memory can meet the instant-on and interactive graphical user interface (GUI) requirements of next-gen electronics.

Macronix’s new ultra-high performance OctaFlash Memory is packaged in an industry standard 24-ball BGA and is backwards compatible with existing Quad SPI and Dual-Quad SPI pin-out patterns, allowing users to easily migrate and minimises any significant PCB routing re-design.

The new ultra-high performance OctaFlash Memory is manufactured with Macronix’s advanced, high-reliable 55nm process. Samples of 1.8V, 256Mb and 512Mb densities are available now.
