Ramtron Samples 64-Kilobit Serial F-RAM Memory
Ramtron announced broad sampling of its newest ferroelectric random access memory (F-RAM) product built on the company’s manufacturing line at IBM Corporation. The FM24C64C is a 64-Kilobit (Kb), 5-volt serial F-RAM device that performs at bus speed without write delays, and supports up to one-trillion (1e12) read/write cycles – a million times more than a comparable EEPROM device. The FM24C64C offers low power operation with 100 µA active current (at 100 kHz) and only 4 µA typical standby current. This F-RAM device is a direct hardware replacement for 64-Kb EEPROM and is ideal for nonvolatile memory applications that require frequent or rapid writes.
About the FM24C64C
The FM24C64C features a serial I2C interface, has an active current of 100 µA (typical at 100 kHz), and performs up to 1MHz bus frequency. The device is a direct drop-in replacement for 64-Kb serial EEPROM and is frequently used in industrial controls, metering, medical, military, gaming, and computing applications, among others. The FM24C64C is offered in an industry standard, RoHS compliant 8-pin SOIC package and operates over the industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
