Spansion has launched a line of 1.8V flash devices, the Spansion FS-S serial flash line, to broaden its serial NOR portfolio. The new flash devices are suited for a broad range of network, medical, utility, industrial, automotive, and consumer applications, including network storage, tolling systems, automotive, smart meters, FPGAs, digital still cameras, medical devices, printers, base stations, and Bluetooth devices. The family currently offers 128Mb and 256Mb densities, with other densities planned in the near future.

With read speeds up to 133MHz in single/dual/quad I/O mode and 80MHz in DDR mode, the FS-S family delivers up to 80MB/s of read throughput and is 50 per cent faster than competing solutions, according to the company. The performance of up to 1.08MB/s—twice the programming speed of competing solutions—accelerates manufacturing throughput and lowers programming costs dramatically. Spansion's FS-S family also offers the fastest erase time in the industry of up to 0.5MB/s.

Spansion FS-S Serial Flash memories offer high densities with reduced pin count coupled with the flexibility and fast performance required by a variety of embedded applications and are ideal for code shadowing, execute in place (XIP), and data storage. The Spansion FS-S family of serial flash devices is available now.
