Spansion Introduces Industry's 1.8V High-Speed Serial NOR Flash Memory

Spansion Inc. introduced the newest 512Mb density member of the FS-S serial NOR flash family. Spansion's FS-S family boasts the industry's 1.8V serial peripheral interface (SPI) read performance at 80MBytes/s with quad DDR (Double Data Rate) at 80MHz clock speeds, 50% faster than most other high-density 1.8V SPI devices currently available. The FS-S 512Mb device also supports reads operation at 133MHz clock speeds in single, dual, and quad IO mode as well as fast programming throughput of 1.08MB/s. Spansion FS-S devices are offered in the industrial (-40C to +85C) and industrial plus (-40C to +105C) temperature ranges. These products reduce the number of signals for connection to the host system by serially transferring all control, address and data information over four to six signals reducing the cost of the memory package and signal switching power, as well as either reducing the host connection count or freeing the host connectors for use in providing other features. Spansion S25FS512S Key Features: Single 1.8V power supply for core and I/O voltage. Quad all (QPI, 4-4-4) read mode; all transfers are 4 bits wide, including instructions. Extended addressing â “ 24- or 32-bit address options. JEDEC JESD216B standard, Serial Flash Discoverable Parameters (SFDP) that provide device feature and configuration information. Configurable initial read latency (number of dummy cycles) for faster initial access time or higher clock rate read commands. Evaluate Erase Status command to determine if the last erase operation on a sector completed successfully. Advanced Sector Protection (ASP) Permanent Protection. Individual sector protection controlled by boot code or password. Unique 128-bit ID for system authentication and additional security.Multiple packages supported 16-pin SOIC (300mil), 8-land WSON 6x8mm and 24-ball BGA 6x8mm. Temperature ranges offered: industrial (-40C to +85C) and industrial plus (-40C to +105C). Spansion S25FS512S is currently sampling and will be fully qualified in April 2015.
