Fujitsu has used an ultra small package for this memory part, which it presents as a solution for power-critical miniature applications in sensor and wearable markets.

The 1Mbit SPI FRAM is in an 8-pin wafer level chip scale package (WL-CSP) which is an additional package variant to the existing product MB85RS1MT. In comparison to the industry standard SOP-8 package, the new WL-CSP package, which measures 3.09 x 2.28 x 0.33 mm, reduces the surface mounting area by 77%, and the device height by 80%.

New F-RAM™ Expands the Density Range of the Most Energy-Efficient Nonvolatile RAMs for Mission-Critical Data Storage.

Cypress Semiconductor introduced a family of 4 Mb serial Ferroelectric Random Access Memories (F-RAMs™), which are the industry’s highest density serial F-RAMs. The 4Mb serial F-RAMs feature a 40-Mhz Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), a 2.0 V to 3.6 V operating voltage range and are available in industry-standard, RoHS-compliant package options. All Cypress F-RAMs provide 100-trillion read/write cycle endurance with 10-year data retention at 85 °C and 151 years at 65 °C.

Cypress F-RAMs are ideal solutions for applications requiring continuous and frequent high-speed reading and writing of data with absolute data security. The 4 Mb serial F-RAM family addresses mission-critical applications such as industrial controls and automation, industrial metering, multifunction printers, test and measurement equipment and medical wearables.

Over a week ago I’ve got a notice that Texas Instruments (TI) is giving away a 50% coupon for MSP430_FRAM related devices. Without hesitation ordered their MSP-EXP430FR5739 TI experimenters board that price went down to $14.50 including free shipping.

MSP EXP430FR5739 FRAM based microcontroller board is interesting piece of hardware. It features FRAM memory instead of Flash which is claimed to withstand almost unlimited number of Reads and Writes. It is also faster. It can substitute an EEPROM on board. But it is not very popular technology due to different manufacturing. On this development board there is MSP430 microcontroller which has 16KB FRAM, 1KB of SRAM. It carries eight LEDS, MTC thermistor, 3 axis digital accelerometer, optional LDR, couple buttons. So this is great for many uses.
