Spansion Inc. (NYSE: CODE), a global leader in embeddedsystems solutions, today strengthened the company’s automotive flash memory portfolioby introducing six automotive-grade devices to the company’s flash memoryportfolio. Spansion is adding three new Serial NOR and three new NAND memorydensities specifically qualified to meet the extended temperature ranges andstringent quality requirements of the automotive industry.
Spansion is complementing the Spansion FL1-K Serial NORflash family with automotive devices qualified for extended temperature ranges(from -40 degrees Celsius to 125 degrees Celsius) in 16Mb, 32Mb, and 64Mbdensities. Spansion is also introducing automotive-grade Spansion ML-G1 NANDflash memories qualified for -40C to 105 degrees Celsius, in 1Gb, 2Gb and 4Gbdensities. All six new Spansion devices have achieved AEC-Q100 qualificationand meet Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) requirements, industrystandards for automotive grade products.
“With our broad portfolio of automotive-grade flashmemories and proven quality, technical support and product longevity, Spansionhas maintained its leadership in automotive flash devices for more than 20years,” said Robin Jigour, senior vice president, Spansion Flash MemoryGroup. “Automotive OEMS are increasing their demand for automotive gradecomponents as applications like Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS),instrument clusters, infotainment and data logging systems become standardofferings in a wider range of vehicles.”
“Extremely high reliability and the ability tooperate at wide temperature variances are among the most critical needs ofautomotive applications,” said Alan Niebel, founder and CEO, WebFeetResearch. “Automotive-grade devices with AEC-Q100 qualification, whichfollow PPAP, meet the most stringent requirements defined by automakersworldwide. Spansion’s active role in the development, test, delivery andsupport of high-performance, high-quality embedded systems for automotive hasled to their market leadership.”
In addition to automotive applications, automotive gradeflash memories are ideal in the industrial space for solar inverters, powerswitches, factory automation and safety monitoring devices.
Spansion’s new automotive serial NOR flash part numbersinclude: S25FL116K (16Mb), S25FL132K (32Mb) and S25FL164K (64Mb). The new automotive NAND flash productsinclude: S34ML01G1 (1Gb), S34ML02G1 (2Gb) and S34ML04G1 (4Gb).
