Atmel Introduces the Industry's First 128K-bit Serial EEPROM in an 8-pin XDFN 0.40 mm Package

    San Jose, California (ots/PRNewswire) -

    Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) announced today the industry's first 128K-bit Serial EEPROM device in an 8-pin XDFN package with overall z-height of 0.40mm. Building upon Atmel's robust Serial EEPROM DFN (Dual Footprint Non-leaded) portfolio, the XDFN package will accommodate the industry movement toward applications with the most stringent space constraints.

    The 8-pin XDFN (1.8 x 2.2 x 0.40mm) package is now offered in 2-wire Serial EEPROM (AT24) and SPI Serial EEPROM (AT25) protocols: 2-wire Serial EEPROM densities range from 1K-bit to 128K-bit and SPI densities range from 1K-bit to 16K-bit. The innovative XDFN package is ideal for a wide range of height constraint communication applications including headsets, Wireless LAN and Bluetooth(R) modules. Atmel is the first to market a Serial EEPROM device in a 0.40mm height leadless package, looking beyond industry standard SOIC and TSSOP offerings.

    "Our leading edge technology enabled us to accomplish such a breakthrough in package technology," said Jeff Takahashi, Director of Marketing for the Serial Interface Product Line. "Reduction of component packaging to fit into smaller application form factors is a continuous trend in the market place and with our XDFN package we are offering a migration path for storage from 1K-bit to 128K-bit with the smallest package height available (0.40mm) in a Serial EEPROM device," added Mr. Takahashi.


    The XDFN (1.8 x 2.2mm) package is now available in volume production in densities from 1K-bit up to 128K-bit in the 2-wire Serial EEPROM (AT24) and from 1K-bit to 16K-bit in the SPI Serial EEPROM (AT25) family. The 8-pin XDFN package is offered in Pb-Free (Green) / Halogen-Free and RoHS compliant packaging with the industry's high reliability NiPdAu finish.
