Low-Voltage 64 Megabit Serial Quad I/O™ SuperFlash® Memory from Microchip Improves Power Consumption in Battery-Powered Devices

CHANDLER, Ariz., Sept. 5, 2017 — A new 1.8V Serial Quad I/O™ SuperFlash® memory device is now available from Microchip Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: MCHP). The SST26WF064C, a low-voltage 64 megabit device, combines Dual Transfer Rate (DTR) with proprietary SuperFlash NOR Flash technology, making it ideal for wireless and battery-powered applications. DTR gives customers the ability to output data on both edges of the clock, which reduces overall data access time and power consumption. SuperFlash technology also reduces power consumption by providing the industry’s fastest erase times. Typical chip erase time for the SST26WF064C is between 35 and 50 milliseconds (ms), whereas competitive Flash devices take more than 30 seconds to erase.
