ReRAM-Forum Blog sponsor Adesto Technologies have reached a major milestone with the shipment of its one billionth DataFlash product! This follows Adesto’s acquisition of Atmel’s DataFlash and Serial Flash business groups almost exactly a year ago. The shipment milestone comes after more than 10 years of product life, enhancing applications in a broad range of industrial, computer, communications, security, medical and consumer electronics. “DataFlash products are among the most widely-adopted non-volatile memory devices for code and data storage in the world,” said Paul Hill, Director of Product Marketing. Recently, Adesto announced the fifth generation of the DataFlash product family, the DataFlash “E” Series, with products that promise lower energy requirements and smart features for higher system efficiency and lower system costs. The family includes 2 Mb to 64Mbit memory devices. Adesto’s E-series devices have a NOR Flash architecture so a single software command can erase/write a single byte. This differs from standard Serial Flash products with a NAND architecture which require a 4Kb block erase.
Adesto Technologies is a leading developer of non-volatile memory solutions based in Sunnyvale, California (USA). Its product portfolio includes DataFlash®, Serial Flash and Conductive Bridge RAM (CBRAM®) memory technology. CBRAM is an ultra-low power, CMOS compatible non-volatile memory that is customized for a wide range of discrete and embedded markets. Adesto Technologies Corporation currently partners with a number of leading semiconductor companies in deployment of CBRAM technology in the market place. A question often asked is whether CBRAM applications overlap with Serial Flash. Adesto responds that ‘Both technologies have their own strengths and for the foreseeable future we see them serving their respective markets.’ For more information, visit Adesto’s website.
