Adesto Technologies has launched a new line of extended voltage range (1.65 V-4.4 V Vcc) serial Flash memory products.The new “Fusion XV” family further enhances and optimizes IoT, wearable, wireless sensors, and other energy conscious applications.
Adesto’s Fusion XV serial Flash memory brings together advanced features, such as ultra-deep power down, active interrupt, and other energy saving capabilities, with a new, extended voltage range. Extending the memory’s operating voltage range from 1.65 V to 4.4 V allows designers to meet the demands of the latest chipsets and lithium polymer battery chemistries without additional circuit complexity or overhead.
“Adesto is committed to enhance the value of our customers’ products by meeting their specific application needs,” said Paul Hill, director of product marketing. “Designers now require external memory for over-the-air update and data storage to supplement the embedded memory of the chipset. They want to connect the chipset and external memory directly to the battery without additional voltage regulation and components. Adesto’s Fusion XV memory provides this in a density, performance and cost range that can’t be met by conventional serial flash or serial eeprom solutions today.”
“Adesto’s Fusion XV devices have a range of features that enhance the system,” he said. “By enabling the use of a single rail power supply, Fusion XV provides the means to save additional component costs and reduce the component footprint, while improving system efficiency and energy consumption.”
Fusion’s small sector sizes and intelligent, active interrupt capabilities provide hardware designers system energy saving options not available in standard serial Flash devices. These features can optimize battery-operation and extend battery life on devices such as Bluetooth low energy (BLE) products, ZigBee, RF4CE, Z-Wave and other Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct applications.
Fusion XV serial Flash products not only use less energy during standard operation but also operate over the full Vcc range of the battery and chipset– maximizing on-board energy reserves. Products supported by Adesto serial memory will continue to operate even when the battery discharge voltage is as low as 1.65 V – further extending battery life and device function.
To support System-in-Package (SIP) and Multi-Chip Module designs, Fusion XV products are offered in 8-ball wafer level chip scale packages, with a slim 0.35mm z-height. Standard package options also include SOIC, UDFN and TSSOP packages.
