Serial Flash Memory Targets Portable Devices

April 22, 2008 5:55 am | Comments

Targeting execute-in-place (XIP) applications in devices where size, power consumption, and high data rates are important, the 3.0-V SST26VF016 Serial Quad I/O 4-bit multiplexed I/O flash memory is available in an 8-contact WSON (6 mm x 5 mm) or 8-lead SOIC (200 mil) package. Handling up to a 350 Mbit/s sustained burst data rate and 8-, 16-, 32- or 64-Byte burst mode operation, the 16-Mbit device operates at 80-MHz and can erase small block sectors in as little as 25 ms or the entire memory in 50 ms.

Connector Provides Fast External Data Backup

April 22, 2008 5:49 am | Comments

Aimed at singlelane external storage applications with less than six feet of cable the eSATA input/output connectors from FCI provide external data backup and protection at speeds up to 3 Gb/s. They operate at both Gen1 and Gen2 speeds so regardless of the implementation the outside of the device enclosure will meet Gen1m specifications when operating at Gen1 speeds and Gen2m specifications when operation at Gen2 speeds.
