Alliance Memory Releases AS5F Series of SPI NAND Flash Memory Products

October 5, 2020 Perry Cohen

Alliance Memory announced the release of the AS5F series, a collection of SPI NAND flash memory 1.8V-3V products. The devices can store densities from 1Gb to 8Gb and feature clock frequencies up to 120MHz.

"While embedded systems have traditionally relied on SPI NOR flash for boot code and parallel NAND flash for data storage, several markets are migrating to SPI NAND flash memory products, which can fulfill both of these functions," said president and CEO of Alliance Memory David Bagby, in a press release. "Not only does this reduce BOM costs, but the devices offer superior performance - increased reliability, faster boot-up, and higher write and erase speeds - in a smaller form factor."

The series offers over 60,000 program erase cycles and 10-year data retention. Additionally, the products offer 25mA read/program currents and 30mA erase currents.

Operating at a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, the AS5F series supports standard, dual, and quad SPI operations. Per the release, they work ideally with and meet the requirements for multimedia data storage applications, AI implementation, Wi-Fi routers, mobile devices, xDSL/xPON technologies, data cards, IP cameras, set-top boxes, digital TVs, and smart home devices.
