2018-02-05 - New high temperature FRAM for automotive and industrial applications

Fujitsu Electronics Europe has launched a second high temperature FRAM MB85RS128TY. This 128kbit FRAM device is designed for an operating temperature of up to 125C and is qualified according to AEC Q100 industrial standard. Following the release of a first automotive FRAM in February 2017, this second device in this high temperature product family aims to serve the automotive and industrial market.

The device incorporates 128kbit FRAM memory density, SPI serial interface with a maximum operating frequency of 33MHz, an extended operating voltage range of 1.8V to 3.6V and an operating temperature range of -40C to 125C. As a non-volatile memory, it guarantees 10 trillion read/write cycles across its full temperature range.

The company has been offering FRAM technology to the market since 1999. As a non-volatile memory technology, FRAM offers unique advantages of fast random access, high read and write endurance and low power consumption. These features enable direct and reliable storage of logging data without any delay and simplify the system architecture on the customer side. FRAM technology has been widely adopted in various industrial applications. With the new high temperature portfolio, the company is aiming to serve new markets such as the automotive sector and industrial automation.
