Second high temperature FRAM for automotive and industrial applications announced by Fujitsu

Fujitsu Electronics Europe (FEEU) has launched a second high temperature FRAM MB85RS128TY. This 128kbit Ferroelectric Random Access Memory (FRAM) device is designed for an operating temperature of up to 125°C and is qualified according to AEC Q100 industrial standard.

Following the release of a first automotive FRAM in February, this second device in the company’s high temperature product family aims to serve the automotive and industrial market.

MB85RS128TY incorporates 128kbit FRAM memory density, SPI serial interface with a maximum operating frequency of 33MHz, an extended operating voltage range of 1.8V to 3.6V and an operating temperature range of -40°C to 125°C. As a non-volatile memory, it guarantees 10 trillion read/write cycles across its full temperature range.

Fujitsu has been offering FRAM technology to the market since 1999. As a non-volatile memory technology, FRAM offers unique advantages of fast random access, high read and write endurance and low power consumption. These features enable direct and reliable storage of logging data without any delay and simplify the system architecture on the customer side. FRAM technology has been widely adopted in various industrial applications. With the new high temperature portfolio, Fujitsu is aiming to serve new markets such as the automotive sector and industrial automation.

With the new MB85RS128TY, Fujitsu responds to customer requests for a FRAM with lower storage density. This goes in line with Fujitsu’s approach to offer tailor-made solutions that flexibly fit its customers’ individual needs.

Engineering samples of MB85RS128TY are available now. AEC Q100 qualifications are scheduled to be completed in July 2017.
