Fujitsu Launches Automotive Grade I2C-interface 512Kbit FeRAM with 125-degree C Operation
YOKOHAMA, Japan, Aug. 7, 2023 /Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/ --

Fujitsu Semiconductor Memory Solution Limited announced the launch of an 
I2C-interface 512Kbit FeRAM with automotive grade, MB85RC512LY. Evaluation 
samples are currently available. 


The MB85RC512LY is a non-volatile memory with 512Kbit memory density and 
operates at a low power supply voltage from 1.7V to 1.95V. It features 
extremely low operating current such as a maximum of 0.4mA at 3.4MHz operation. 

This product guarantees 10 trillion read/write cycle times in the high 
temperature at 125 degrees C. The FeRAM product is optimal for industrial 
robots and automotive applications such as Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems

Since the new FeRAM has an I2C interface, customers using an I2C interface for 
their platform do not need major design modifications in developing an 
end-product by using the memory parts.

Using the above features, the new FeRAM product can solve the following issues 
arising from the use of memory products.

The automotive-grade FeRAM family has variations of 3.3V and 1.8V operation for 
both I2C- and SPI-interface products. With the launch of MB85RC512LY, the 
AEC-Q100 compliant FeRAM family has added 7 new products since the last year. 
In addition, 4 new types of 1Mbit products are currently under development.

Fujitsu believes that the required memory density needs to be varied because 
applications sought by customers are diverse. Fujitsu will continue to provide 
optimal memory products and solutions to enhance the value and convenience of 
customer applications.
