Excelon™, Cypress’ next-generation Ferroelectric RAM (F-RAM), delivers the industry’s highest-performance mission-critical non-volatile memory by combining high-speed low-pin-count interfaces, low-power operation, unlimited read/write cycle endurance and instant nonvolatility. This makes Excelon the highest-reliability data-logging memory for smart connected factories and the automobiles of tomorrow. Click here to visit the Excelon F-RAM product webpage.
Common Features of Excelon-Ultra/Auto
High-Performance, Highly-Reliable and Instant Non-Volatile Memory in Low-Pin-Count Interfaces
Next-generation industrial and automotive systems need high-performance non-volatile memories to log user and sensor data continuously, over long periods of time, and to instantly capture system state data in the case of power loss. In these next-generation systems, there is also a need to reduce the number of microcontroller pins used to interface with external memories. This need is driving a conversion from parallel to low-pin-count serial interface memories. For these systems, Excelon-Ultra and Excelon-Auto families provide the highest-performance-to-date FRAMs with the addition of a 108-MHz low-pin-count QSPI interface with unlimited read/write endurance, fast writes, and instant non-volatility. Excelon-Ultra and Excelon-Auto are superior to battery backed SRAMs traditionally used in these systems due to higher reliability and a reduced maintenance requirement resulting from the elimination of batteries. Additionally, Excelon reduces the BOM cost by replacing a multi-component solution (SRAM + battery + power management controller) with a single chip solution. Excelon-Auto F-RAMs are AEC-Q100 qualified and Functional Safety compliant to meet the demanding data-logging requirements of Automotive Event-Data-Recorder (EDR) systems.
