Macronix Provides Advanced Flash Memory To STMicro


Macronix International, an integrated device manufacturer in
the non-volatile memory (NVM) market, has announced that STMicroelectronics
(ST) is using Macronix OctaBus flash memory for several STM32 microcontroller
(MCU) platforms, including the STM32H72x/73x, STM32L5 and the recently
announced STM32U5. Macronix's MX25 OctaBus family is providing the
high-performance memory on select STM32 Discovery Kits and Evaluation Boards.

“Finding an external memory solution that allows our STM32
devices to demonstrate the full range of their exceptional performance and
features is key to the success of our industry-leading family of MCUs,” said
Daniel Colonna, marketing director, Microcontroller Division,
STMicroelectronics. “By helping developers exploit the full capabilities of the
STM32 MCUs, Macronix, with its OctaBus non-volatile memories, is a member of
the ST Partner Program and a contributor to the extensive STM32 ecosystem.”

“We're pleased to continue our valuable partnership with
STMicroelectronics and to deliver innovative solutions that unleash the
exceptional performance of the wide STM32 offering,” said F.L. Ni, vice
president of marketing at Macronix. “STM32 family is designed to cover the full
spectrum of performance, high memory integration and power savings for smart,
connected products.”

The highly advanced STM32 devices embed up to two Octal SPI
ports supporting the OctaBus interface, which comprises Macronix's octaflash 8
I/O NOR and OctaRAM memories. OctaBus memory devices have been designed to meet
current and emerging trends of demanding applications that require extremely
high performance, reliability and an enhanced user experience.

The MX25LM/UM OctaBus memories meet the growing demand for
"instant-on" performance and real-time system responsiveness for
external memories in automotive, industrial and consumer applications. The
ultra-high-performance OctaBus memory products can perform up to an operational
frequency of 250MHz with 500MB/s read throughput, which is the industry's
fastest. The OctaBus memory devices enable system architects to meet customers'
demanding expectations for systems with a rich graphical user interface and
achieve ultra-fast response times.

The MX25LW/UW OctaBus memory family has exceptional features
for efficient management of over-the-air (OTA) software updates and data
logging. Those features of the MX25LW/UW family are also a natural extension as
execute-in-place (XIP) memory for STM32 MCUs. OctaBus memory offered in
densities up to 2Gb can support the most advanced graphical user interfaces.

The STM32 family of 32-bit microcontrollers, based on the
Arm Cortex-M processor, is designed to offer new degrees of freedom to MCU
users. It offers products combining very high performance, real-time
capabilities, digital signal processing, low-power / low-voltage operation, and
connectivity, while maintaining full integration and ease of development.

AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
