ON Semiconductor has launched a SPI bus flash memory that has a 4Mbit configuration. The LE25U40CMD includes high performance dual output and dual I/O function. It uses a single 2.5V power supply. The device is housed in an 8-pin ultra-miniature package. The flash memory also comes with small sector erase capability which makes the device suitable for storing parameters or data that have fewer rewrite cycles that conventional EEPROMs cannot handle due to insufficient capacity.
The devices have an operating frequency of 40MHz and an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. They are rated to retain data for 20 years. Typical applications include portable information devices, smartphones, personal media players and wearables.
