STMicroelectronics Slims Ultra-Portable Displays with I2C Serial EEPROMs in Industry-Leading Tiny, Lightweight Package
STMicroelectronics is taking serial EEPROM to the next level of miniaturization with its latest UFDFPN5 devices measuring just 1.4mm x 1.7mm.
The low-profile UFDFPN5 package (also known as MLP5) is easy to integrate with standard production processes, is 40% smaller than UFDFPN8, until now, the smallest package size in widespread use and weighs 56% less at only 7mg.
Ideal for building ultra-small and lightweight LCD modules in next-generation notebooks and tablets, the new EEPROM package starts with the M24C16-FMH6TG. This 16Kbit device is compatible with 400kHz and 100kHz I2C™-bus modes, has maximum byte or page write time of 5ms, and draws very low current of 1mA in read or write mode and 1µA in standby. 32Kbit, 64Kbit and 128Kbit variants supporting I2C will follow during 2014.
The M24C16-FMH6TG is available immediately in high volume, priced from $0.17 in the UFDFPN5 package for orders of 1,000 pieces.For further information please go to www.st.com/eeprom.
