Infineon Technologies LLC announced the availability of its second-generation non-volatile Static RAMs (nvSRAM). The new generation of devices are qualified for QML-Q and high-reliability industrial specifications to support demanding non-volatile code storage and data-logging applications in harsh environments, including aerospace and industrial applications.
The 256 kb STK14C88C and 1 Mb STK14CA8C nvSRAMs are qualified in 32 pins 300 mil dual-in-line ceramic packages for MIL-PRF-38535 QML-Q specifications (-55°C to 125°C) and for Infineon’s industrial standards (-40°C to 85°C). Both 5 V and 3 V versions support boot code, data logging, and calibration data storage for aerospace, communications, and navigation systems, in addition to industrial furnaces and railroad control systems. Infineon also offers wafer sales to support systems in package solutions.
Infineon’s nvSRAM technology combines high-performance SRAM with best-in-class SONOS non-volatile technology. Under normal operating conditions, nvSRAM acts similarly to a conventional asynchronous SRAM. In the event of a power failure, a nvSRAM automatically saves a copy of the SRAM data into non-volatile memory, where the data is protected for over 20 years. Infineon has shipped more than two billion SONOS-based non-volatile embedded or standalone memories.
