|Serial F-RAM Nonvolatile Memory - Cypress Semiconductor’s Serial F-RAM (Ferroelectric RAM) memories combine nonvolatile data storage with the fast speed of RAM. Serial F-RAM offers densities ranging from 4 Kb to 2 Mb, SPI and I²C interfaces, and industry-standard packages. Serial F-RAM has three distinct advantages over traditional nonvolatile memories: fast write speed with no write delay, virtually unlimited endurance, and low energy consumption. Serial F-RAM provides fast writes at full interface speed. Serial F-RAM does not have any write delays; data is instantly nonvolatile.
|PSoC 5LP ARM® Cortex™ - Cypress Semiconductor's PSoC 5LP is a low power, ARM® Cortex™-M3-based programmable, system-on-chip devices offering unmatched high-precision analog functionality and the flexibility to design custom system solutions. The devices use PSoC® 5LP with PSoC Creator components to shorten design schedules, accelerating time-to-market. With its unique array of configurable blocks, PSoC® 5 is a true system-level solution providing microcontroller unit (MCU), memory, analog, and digital peripheral functions in a single chip.
|QDR II+ and DDR II+ Xtreme SRAMs - Cypress Semiconductor's QDR II+ and DDR II+ Xtreme are fit-, form-, and function-compatible with existing QDR II+ family devices, allowing manufacturers of network switches, routers, and aggregation platforms to boost performance by simply increasing clock speeds within the system without any board design changes.
|USB to UART Bridge Controller - Cypress Semiconductor's USB to UART Bridge Controller (CY7C64225) is a fully integrated USB to UART controller that provides USB connectivity to devices with a UART interface. The device includes a USB 2.0 Full-Speed Controller, Voltage Regulator, and internal EEPROM in a 28-pin SSOP package. These features make the product ideal for upgrading legacy peripherals to USB interface.

White Paper: Performance and Energy Comparison of F-RAM and EEPROM
This white paper quantifies the overall impact that Ramtron low-energy F-RAM has on the energy consumption and nonvolatile memory performance within a practical system. A comparison is made between F-RAM Low Energy Memory and a standard EEPROM. A simple data collection system that consists of a sensor, a low power microcontroller and a nonvolatile memory is considered in the system analysis.
Ferroelectric Technology Brief
Ferroelectric Random Access Memory or F-RAM has attributes that make it the ideal nonvolatile memory. It is a true nonvolatile RAM. In the past two years the technology has moved rapidly toward its emergence as a mainstream memory selection. This technology note provides a brief explanation of its operation as well as an overview of the technology development status.
Data Retention Performance of 0.5µ F-RAM Products
This document presents retention test data on both 5V and 3V 0.5µ products. Data retention can be predicted based on accelerated testing. The results support the change to the retention specification from 10 to 45 years.
Endurance of 0.5µ FRAM Products
FRAM is also known for its high endurance, a fast write speed, and low power consumption. Endurance is defined as the ability of the device to sustain switchable polarization after many switching cycles. It is one of the critical performance characteristics for FRAM applications. Due to the high endurance of FRAM devices, evaluating the endurance behavior in a reasonable amount of time becomes difficult.
