Ramtron announced that its FM25V10-G – a 1-Megabit (Mb), 2.0-3.6V serial F-RAM memory device – has been qualified to AEC-Q100 Grade 3 standards. This rigorous automotive-grade qualification, established by the Automotive Electronic Council’s Stress Test Qualification for Integrated Circuits, expands Ramtron’s portfolio of AEC-Q100 compliant memory to 15 devices, which are designed to meet the demanding requirements of the automotive market. The Grade-3 qualification ensures device operation over the automotive temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees Celsius.
The FM25V10-G is a member of Ramtron’s V-Family nonvolatile F-RAM memory, which features a wide operating voltage range of 2.0 to 3.6-volts. The FM25V10-G is a 1-Mb serial SPI device that has an operating current of 3.0 mA (Idd at 40MHz) in an industry standard 8-pin SOIC package. The product operates at full bus speed of 40MHz, features NoDelay™ writes, virtually unlimited read/write cycles, and low power consumption. The device is a drop-in replacement for 1-Mb serial Flash and serial EEPROM memories in automotive, industrial controls, metering, medical, military, gaming, and computing applications, among others.

“The FM25V10 demonstrates automotive-grade compliance of our highest density product to date,” comments Ramtron marketing manager, Mike Peters. “Adding Grade 3 qualification to our V-Family product line allows us to offer power-efficient, high-performance nonvolatile memories to automotive customers over the entire density range of 4-kilobits to 1-megabit.”
