      Dear All

         

      I am new for this area and I supposed to work with FM1608M-120-PG  chip ( RAMTRON)

         

      1.Please advice which IDE i need to be installed for develop source code and experiments

         

      2.please advice with PC upload software for programming

         

      3.please advice with serial programmer ( Hardware )

         

      Your reply is highly appreciated

         

      Thank you

           I have not been able to find FM1608M-120-PG on Cypress website. my guess is that it is EOL

             

          is it a parallel memory?

            Dea zeta,

               

            Thanks for the reply

               

            I am also couldn't find this RAM in the CYPRESS, eventhough top of the RAM one lable called "RAMTRON" and  ramtron weblink direct to the CYPRESS

               

            Is this prallel ram?  YES THIS IS PARALLEL RAM

               

             

               

            Please advice if you get more

               

            thanks in advanxce

              Cypress bought Ramtron a few months ago so Ramtron parts are now Cypress parts, you could ask your FAE representative to see if that part is no longer suported.

                 

              if it is a parallel RAM then it is just a temporary memory so:

                 

               1.Please advice which IDE i need to be installed for develop source code and experiments

                 

              The IDE and tools depend on the Microprocessor or microcontroller you interface it width.  A parallel RAM is of no use without a microprocessor.

                 

              2.please advice with PC upload software for programming

                 

              again it depends on the microprocesor you are using, the ram retaing dada only while there is power.

                 

               

                 

              3.please advice with serial programmer ( Hardware )

                 

              no programmer the microprocesor stores and loads.

                I found new FRAM FM1608B as per Cypress FM160B and FM1608 identically same in software 

                   

                 

                   

                Can I able to read this FRAM usnig hardware reader like we read 2402 searies EEPROM

                   

                 

                   

                My favarite MCU is PIC16f877a which is microchip product 

                   

                 

                   

                I would like to starts project to read and write to this FRAM using this MCU

                   

                 

                   

                Would please advice me if there any hardware to read this FRAM otherthan using MCU

                   

                 

                   

                Thanks in advance
