San Jose, California (ots/PRNewswire)
- New Package Offers 33% Thickness Savings
Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) announced today the industry's
first 128K-bit Serial EEPROM device in an 8-pin ultra thin MLP (2 x
3mm) leadless package with overall height of 0.60mm.
The 8-pin ultra thin MLP (2 x 3 x 0.60mm) package is now offered
in densities from 1K-bit to 128K-bit for the 2-wire Serial EEPROM
(AT24) and 1K-bit to 64K-bit in the SPI Serial EEPROM (AT25) family.
This package is ideal for compact and portable consumer applications
such as MP3 players, digital cameras and remote controls. In
addition, the MLP package is ideal for a wide range of height
constrained communication applications including, Bluetooth modules
and mobile phones. Traditionally, the MLP (2 x 3mm) package has been
limited to low density Serial EEPROM devices. Atmel is the first to
market this package for high-density Serial EEPROM devices up to
128K-bit. Previously, the highest available density by the industry
in a 2X3 mm MLP was a 32K Serial EEPROM.
"Fitting a 128K-bit Serial EEPROM in an ultra thin MLP package
offers designers with maximum flexibility, in board space savings and
overall height, while maintaining the capability to migrate up in
density from 1K-bit up to 128K-bit without changing the board
layout," said Bassam Khoury, Managing Director for the Serial
Interface Product Line. "Atmel's leading edge technology enabled us
to accomplish this breakthrough in package technology."
The ultra thin MLP (2 x 3mm) package is available now in densities
from 1K-bit up to 128K-bit in the 2-wire family and 1K-bit up to
64K-bit in the SPI family. The 8-pin MLP package is offered in a
Pb-Free (Green), Halogen-Free and RoHS compliant packaging with the
industry's high reliability NiPdAu finish.
Atmel is a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of
microcontrollers, advanced logic, mixed-signal, nonvolatile memory
