Infineon’s SEMPER Nano NOR flash is 256 Mbit and aims to reduce electronics’ size and increase efficiency. Just a few days ago Infineon announced its 256 Mbit SEMPER Nano Nor Flash memory the company is reporting would help consumer and industrial electronics become smaller and more power-efficient.
The memory is optimized for smaller battery-operated electronic devices. This is to include the wearable and industrial markets, including fitness trackers, health monitors, GPS trackers, hearables, and drones. Other complex system function applications include precision tracking, enhanced security, noise cancellation, and information logging, to name a few.
There is a need for decreased physical size and greater memory size. Omida has reported that the Bluetooth enable headphones and headsets market is poised to reach a billion units by 2024.
Designers and developers are faced with the need for more memory in tighter spaces, that maximize battery life more efficiently. The Flash SEMPER Nano NOR combines a small footprint with high density as well as low power. This latest memory comes with support for designers and engineers looking to design devices around the smaller more efficient memory.
“Semiconductors play a critical role in enabling innovative applications that have the potential to change the way we live. With smarter lifestyle devices, we can make better health choices, keep track of our loved ones, and ensure their safety,” said Sandeep Krishnegowda, VP of Marketing and Applications, Flash Memory Solutions, Infineon Technologies. “With SEMPER Nano, we enable our customers to add more functionality to their smart devices by offering more memory in an ultra-compact footprint while simultaneously enhancing system reliability with built-in ECC.”
This line of memory is supported by the SEMPER Solutions Hub, a well-known portal with the many building blocks needed to integrate the memory into a new or developing device. The tools and software available are meant to shorten design and development times and quicker time to market.
The memory is available in 256Mbit 1.8V configurations in commercial and industrial grades. The units supply 40Mbytes/s SPI throughput and well-developed standby and active currents. The device features the MIRRORBIT technology and is available in Known Good Wafer (KGW), wafer-level chip scale package (WL-CSP) as well as BGA formats.
Also available is the SEMPER Nano Pmod-compatible memory to help ease hardware development and assembly.
