Ramtron gets Grade 1 automotive qualification for nonvolatile state savers
Ramtron International has announced that two of its nonvolatile state savers, the FM1105-GA and FM1106-GA, have received AEC-Q100 Grade 1 qualification. The state saver device saves the state of signals on demand and restores them to the correct state automatically upon power up. F-RAM technology uniquely enables this capability due to its fast write time, virtually unlimited write endurance, and low-power requirements.
Toshiba to launch world’s first 32nm process NAND flash memory
