Fujitsu Launches New Member of FRAM V Series with Extended Wide Voltage Range of 2.7 V to 5.5 V provides Fujitsu’s customers with greater flexibility and improved efficiencyFujitsu Semiconductor Europe (FSEU) today announced a new addition to its wide voltage range FRAM (Ferroelectric Random Access Memory) product series (V series). FRAM is now extensively used in applications such as power meters, factory automation or monitoring systems. The newly launched MB85RC256V offers the highest density level in the V series and is Fujitsu’s first FRAM product that operates in an even wider voltage range of 2.7 V to 5.5 V, which provides even greater flexibility for customer applications. By supporting the complete voltage range for 3.3 V and 5 V systems, the MB85RC256V unit offers customers greater efficiency in their design and logistic processes.

The new V series member will offer 256-kbit memory density with a configuration of 32k words x 8-bits. The device features I²C serial interfaces at a maximum operating frequency of 400 kHz at an operating voltage of 2.7 V to 4.5 V or a maximum of 1 MHz at an operating voltage of 4.5 V to 5.5 V. All products in this series are available in EEPROM-compatible 8-pin plastic SOP packages. As regards reliability, Fujitsu has achieved significant improvements in the V series. The specifications for the MB85RC256V offer 10 years’ data retention at 85 °C and an endurance rating of 1 trillion (1012) read/write cycles, ensuring that operation is guaranteed over the industrial temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C.

Fujitsu offers a broad spectrum of FRAM devices equipped with I²C, SPI or parallel interfaces, covering densities ranging from 4 kbit to 4 Mbit. As a special type of non-volatile memory, FRAM combines the advantages of SRAM and EEPROM with fast write access, extremely low power consumption and virtually unlimited read/write endurance. By keeping development and manufacturing in-house, Fujitsu can maximise co-operation between design and factory teams. This, in turn, provides a stable foundation from which the company can offer valuable, high-quality products to the market along a stable supply chain.

Sample quantities of these new products start shipping today. Batch orders can be placed immediately.
