Comprised of two familiar and reliable memory technologies on a single chip, EEPROM and SRAM, EERAM offers a robust and dependable data solution that is also the lowest cost non-volatile SRAM solution. EERAM does not require an external battery to safely store data during a power loss event. Instead, a small, external capacitor is needed to provide the energy needed to store the contents of the SRAM on to the EEPROM when system power is lost.
"We want to provide customers with easy, inexpensive, and reliable memory solutions with unlimited endurance," said Randy Drwinga, vice president of Microchip's Memory Products Division. "EERAM is an excellent solution for customers looking to constantly record or monitor data, and now Microchip provides this solution at a cost that is unmatched for metering, automotive and industrial applications."
