The latest device in Ramtron's V-Family of F-RAM products is the FM28V020, a 256 Kb, 2.0 to 3.6 V, parallel nonvolatile RAM in an industry standard 28-pin SOIC package that features fast access, NoDelay writes, virtually unlimited read/write cycles, and low power consumption. The FM28V020 may be used as a drop-in replacement for battery-backed SRAM in industrial control, metering, medical, automotive, military, gaming, and computing applications, among others. The device is a 32K x 8 nonvolatile ferroelectric random access memory (F-RAM) that reads and writes like a standard SRAM and retains data after power is removed. The FM28V020 provides data retention for over 10 years while eliminating the reliability concerns, functional disadvantages, and system design complexities of battery-backed SRAM (BBSRAM).
