Microchip announces the 8-kbit and 16-kbit Microwire compatible serial EEPROMs in a 6-lead SOT-23 package. Approximately the size of the equal symbol (=) on the key of a standard keyboard, this device is suited for portable and handheld applications where board space is at a premium. These devices offer low write-cycle times, low supply current and low stand-by current. The 93XX76A and 93XX86A devices are designed to support a x8-memory organization and the 93XX76B and 93XX86B devices support a x16-memory organization. The 93XX76C and 93XX86C devices feature a standard Word Organization (ORG) pin, allowing for selection of either the 8- or 16-bit word lengths. The 93LC76A/B/C and 93LC86A/B/C have operating voltages down to 2.5 volts, active current of 1 milliamp (mA) and standby current of 1 microamp (μA). For battery-powered applications with lower voltage requirements, the 93AA76A/B/C and 93AA86A/B/C enable operation down to 1.8 volts. A third series, the 93C76A/B/C and 93C86A/B/C, are available for standard 5-volt applications requiring a higher power-on-reset (POR) voltage threshold. The footprint of the 6-lead SOT-23 package is 8.26 mm2. The device profile has a height of approximately 1.2 mm.
