lated with a superset of Ramtron F-RAM core memory and integrated products, the TWR-FRAM offers engineers that develop with Freescale’s ARM Cortex-based Kinetis and i.MX, ColdFire, PowerQUICC, QorIQ, and other microcontroller and microprocessor solutions an easy-to-use platform to demonstrate, evaluate, and develop Ramtron’s F-RAM into their design solutions.
F-RAM inherently features high endurance, fast single-cycle and symmetrical read/write speeds, low energy consumption, gamma radiation tolerance, and immunity to electromagnetic noise. The TWR-FRAM is designed to allow users to develop with Ramtron’s complete product line; offering core memory products up to 8 megabits and choice of memory interface (SPI, I2C, or parallel), as well as Ramtron’s processor companions, state savers, and an interface to Ramtron’s wireless memory products, such as the WM72016-6-EVAL, sold separately.
Pricing and Availability
Ramtron’s TWR-FRAM memory module is in stock and immediately available worldwide from Future Electronics, Digi-Key, and Mouser Electronics. The TWR-FRAM is also available for order from other Ramtron/Freescale mutually authorized distributors (such as Alltek, Tokyo Electron Devices, WT Micro, and Farnell). While specifically developed using Freescale’s Kinetis K53 Tower System kit (TWR-K53N512-KIT), the TWR-FRAM module is designed to work as a peripheral module with any Freescale Tower System controller or processor module, forming a complete Tower System assembly.
The suggested resale price for the TWR-FRAM is $99USD.
