The Most Flexible Type of Nonvolatile Memory Devices

Atmel is a leading supplier of Serial EEPROM devices and has shipped over 12 billion devices in the past decade. Because of the ability to alter single bytes of data, Serial EEPROM devices are used to store personal preference and configuration data in a wide spectrum of consumer, automotive, telecommunication, medical, industrial, and PC applications. Atmel offers Serial EEPROM devices in I2C, Microwire and SPI compatible protocols. The devices come in a number of industry-standard package types including space saving DFN, VFBGA, SOT23, and WLCSP packages. Atmel Serial EEPROM devices feature low pin count and are optimized for use in automotive and industrial temperature applications where low-power and low-voltage operation are essential.

Key Features

  • Broad portfolio — Serial EEPROM devices are offered in 1-Kbit to 1-Mbit densities in I2C, Microwire, and SPI compatible protocols available in voltages from 1.7V to 5.5V.
  • Diverse packages options — The Serial EEPROM devices come in industry standard PDIP, SOIC, and TSSOP package types, as well as space saving DFN, VFBGA, SOT23, and WLCSP packages.
  • High performance — Atmel Serial EEPROM devices offer low active and standby currents and operate at fast clock frequencies.
  • Automotive designs — Atmel offers automotive-qualified Serial EEPROM devices in environmentally friendly "green" versions designed to withstand broad extended temperature ranges.
  • Customer resources — Application notes, software drivers, IBIS and Verilog models available to aid customer's application development.
