ipXchange did a brief video with GigaDevice at Embedded World, where they showed off their range of memory products and the easy-to-use sample board for evaluating their devices in conjunction with an MCU-based project.
Given this, we thought we’d follow up with a short piece on GigaDevice’s automotive-grade NOR and NAND flash products, which have just celebrated their “1 million units shipped” milestone. These provide an alternative to devices from Micron, Microchip, Winbond, and many other big-name manufacturers.
GigaDevice’s GD25 and GD55 SPI NOR flash and GD5F SPI NAND flash products are AEC-Q100 qualified and are available in 3.3 V or 1.8 V versions. A wide operating range of -40°C to 125°C for the NOR devices and -40°C to 105°C for the NAND devices also makes them a good fit for industrial applications, with a boasted defect rate of less than 10 ppm and 20 years of data retention supporting the reliability of these devices in the field.
The GD25 and GD55 NOR flash devices are available in densities ranging from 2 Mb to 2 Gb, and this increases to 1 Gb to 4 Gb for the GD5F NAND flash devices.
