AN96614 - Migrating from SPI EEPROM to Cypress's SPI F-RAM™
AN96614 provides an overview about advantages and differences to be considered when migrating from a SPI EEPROM to high-reliability and energy-efficient Cypress’s SPI F-RAM.
Cypress’s F-RAM has fast random access SRAM memory cells and provides virtually infinite (1014) read/write endurance cycles, orders of magnitude higher than an EEPROM. The F-RAM performs write operations at the bus speed without incurring any write delays (NoDelay™) unlike serial EEPROMs and flash memories. Data is directly written into the F-RAM array; the next bus cycle can start immediately without checking the readiness of the device before subsequent access.
Cypress’s serial SPI F-RAM devices are available as drop-in replacements to the standard SPI EEPROM devices. This application note shows the differences between an industry-standard SPI EEPROM and Cypress’s SPI F-RAM solution. These differences need to be considered when migrating from an SPI EEPROM-based solution to Cypress’s SPI F-RAM solution.
Dear valued customer,
Thank you for choosing our products. They come with all the know-how and passion that our engineers have put into it. As you probably already know, Cypress is now Infineon. This is a major step for our company, but also for the good of you.
