With so many types of memory products on the market, you need to be sure that you can trust both the technology and its supplier.
Overview Of the Various Memory Products
For an electronic device to do multiple things simultaneously, it needs memory. But you need to make sure it has the correct type and that you can rely on it over the entire lifecycle of your product. This post gives a quick overview of the many different types of memory products that we provide and some valuable pointers to help you make the right choice for your application.
Serial EEPROM devices are low-power, reprogrammable and nonvolatile memory devices with wide operating ranges, making them well suited for data and program storage. They come in a wide variety of tiny, innovative packages that help to save board space and reduce costs in designs like sensors, hearing aids, medical disposables and other space-constrained applications.
Serial SRAM and Serial NVSRAM
Suppose you need a quick and inexpensive way to add more RAM to your application. In that case, our 8-pin, SPI-compatible serial SRAM and serial NVSRAM devices are a good choice because they can save you from needing a more costly microcontroller (MCU) in your design. They allow unlimited instantaneous memory writes, making them perfect for applications like meters, data loggers, data recorders and black boxes.
NOR Serial and Parallel Flash
Our SuperFlash® technology is an innovative, reliable and flexible type of NOR Flash memory. Its split-gate cell architecture uses a robust thick oxide process resulting in a nonvolatile memory solution with extremely fast erase time, excellent data retention and higher reliability.
Memory Design Resources
Our MemoryLink Product Selection Tool provides a comprehensive overview of our memory products and supporting development boards. You can download this interactive PDF and then use the embedded links to quickly navigate to product-specific information and learn about helpful development tools.
Remember to Partner With Microchip
If you want to reduce your design risk, save money and bring your product quickly and successfully to market, it makes sense for you to partner with us for your memory needs. We offer reliable products, dedicated support and a proven supply chain. Our client-driven obsolescence policy ensures that until you decide you no longer need a product, we will continue to supply it, so you don’t need to worry about it going obsolete. Contact your local sales office to discuss your requirements with one of our knowledgeable sales staff members or Field Applications Engineers (FAEs). They are there to help you navigate the maze of available memory options to help you pick the best product for your design.
