Ramtron Offers FRAM Memory in Tiny DFN Packaging

12/9/2004 - Ramtron International Corporation (Nasdaq:RMTR), the leading supplier of non-volatile FRAM memory products, has announced the availability of select FRAM (ferroelectric random access memory) products in DFN (dual flat no-lead) plastic packaging. The existing FRAM products that are now offered in this thin package with a small PCB (printed circuit board) footprint are the FM24CL16, FM25CL64 and FM25L256 devices.

The FM24CL16 is offered in a 3.0mm x 6.4mm package, and the FM25CL64 and FM25L256 are available in a 4.0mm x 4.5mm package. Both packages are only 0.75mm high. The 3.0mm x 6.4mm version is compatible with industry-standard TSSOP8 packages, making it suitable for a drop-in replacement. DFN packaging is planned for additional Ramtron FRAM products.

All new DFN packages are provided in "green" lead-free packaging that is compliant with EC RoHS (Restriction of Hazard Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment). DFN advanced packaging enables designers to use fast-write, high-endurance FRAM in low-headroom applications, while reducing cost and increasing available board space for other functions. These tiny memories are targeted for consumer video games, disposable medical tags and HDTV sets.
