Microchip Technology has expanded its SPI serial EEPROM product line with two high-density (256 Kb), high-speed (up to 10 MHz) devices. The 25AA256 is available in a 1.8 to 5.5 V voltage range, and the 25LC256 has a 2.5 to 5.5 V voltage range. Both industrial-temperature grade and extended-temperature grade versions are available. These devices feature 200-year data retention and endurance of one million erase/write cycles. They are offered in the low-profile (0.9 millimeter) DFN package for applications with limited space requirements. Standard packaging is also provided, including TSSOP, PDIP and SOIC. The new SPI devices are supported by Microchip’s SEEVAL®32 Serial EEPROM Designer’s Kit. This development system enables designers to reduce the time required for system integration and hardware/software debug.
