ST uncrates 32Mbit flash for autos

August 30, 2006 – STMicroelectronics has enhanced its 32Mbit flash memory chip, based on 0.11-micron process technology and intended specifically for the automotive market.

Features of the chip include ?45nsec access times across a range of temperatures, and 75MHz maximum burst frequency, operating on a 3.3V memory core supply. Protection features include flexible hardware/software protection, a secured command set for modifying operations, a bank erase command and a one-shot program from an internal buffer, and a unique embedded device ID to allow the use of cryptographic algorithms to protect against illegal software modifications.

Engineering samples are available now, with volume production slated for 3Q06, and a 16Mbit device planned for later this year.
