Improved Memory Throughput Using Serial NOR Flash
March 29, 2012 // Cliff Zitlaw, Spansion // 0 commentsDownload White Paper 1Mo
NOR flash remains the preferred non-volatile technology for discrete memories in embedded systems. Today's NOR based SPI memories have reached 108MHz clock rates with a QuadIO (x4) interface to achieve a 54MB/s sustained read throughput while remaining compatible with the original interface specified nearly 25 years ago. The legacy SPI interface and bus protocol is reaching fundamental timing limits that will make difficult further increases to the SPI bus clock rate. This paper will describe both system level and memory device strategies that deal with these timing limitations allowing higher SPI bus throughputs.

This month, Cherry is giving away five of its Energy Harvesting Evaluation kits, worth over 266 Euros each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win. Cherry's energy harvesting technology benefit mostly applications where a complex wire assembly and/or batteries would be inappropriate.
The required RF-energy is created by the mechanical actuation of the switch and the data is transmitted wirelessly using RF-technology. The technology is very easy to install, fit and forget, with two standardised package versions for industrial applications: a rocker switch for actuation by hand and a snap-action switch for mechanical actuation.MORE INFO AND LAST MONTH' WINNERS...
