Macronix Flash Memory Products Selected By STMicroelectronics

News

Macronix International, an integrated device manufacturer in the Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) market, has announced that STMicroelectronics has adopted Macronix's solution and used its Flash memory products in ST's new STM32L4 microcontroller Discovery Kit with memory, rich graphics, and communication peripherals.

Macronix's Quad-SPI Flash memory MX25R6435F provides ultra-low power consumption in WLCSP, currently the industry's smallest package, with benefits of longer battery life and suitable for portable small-scale devices or space constrained applications.  The MX25R6435F Quad SPI NOR Flash memory also has a deep power down current of 200nA as well as fast wake up time with a read current of 6mA, which is an ideal choice to store code and data, especially for low power and XIP applications.  MX25R6435F is also available in industry-standard packages, such as compact 8-land WSON, USON and SOP.

Macronix's MX25R6435F is manufactured on its own 75nm technology node and  the Macronix 10-year Product Longevity Program.

ST's new STM32L496/4A6 ultra-low-power microcontrollers (MCUs) use ARM Cortex -M4-core processing power and efficiency. They are also designed for a wide range of applications including wearables, industrial sensors, home automation and audio and metering systems.

The STM32L496/4A6 features up to 1MB of internal Flash, 320KB  internal SRAM (320KB), and advanced features such as ST's Chrom-ART advanced graphic acceleration, camera interface, 2 x CAN, and 4 x I2C. The Flexible Memory Controller (FMC) and dual Quad-SPI interface simplify off-chip memory expansion allowing practically unlimited application code size. With the new STM32L496/4A6 microcontrollers, ST is demonstrating its commitment to provide the best-in class ultra-low-power microcontroller solutions while adding performance and advanced features.

"Macronix's ultra-low power Quad- SPI Flash memory solution enabled to exploit the unique ultra-low-power features of the STM32L4 MCUs to offer a complete system solution focused on low power, performance and cost," said Daniel COLONNA, MCU Marketing Director, STMicroelectronics.

"We are pleased that STMicroelectronics has selected our ultra-low-power NOR Flash memory for its new advanced microcontroller (MCU) Discovery Kit and take the cooperation in between as a great recognition of the excellence of our products." said Macronix's Vice President of Marketing, Ful-Long Ni "Our MX25R Quad-SPI Flash memory has a small footprint that is ideal for space-constrained smart appliances and devices and its low power and wide voltage range operation are tailored to overcome the challenges of new wearable and IoT devices"



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

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

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. 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. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove 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.
