32K I2C and SPI EEPROMs offer up to 4 million erase/write cycles

The latest EEPROM family from STMicroelectronics, the worlds no.1 EEPROM supplier, guarantees endurance of up to 4 million erase/write cycles - whereas competing devices offer only 1 million cycles giving designers extra freedom to update stored data more frequently and extend system lifetime, even at high temperatures.

STs advanced CMOSF8H 0.15 m process is key to the EEPROMs enhanced endurance. Devices are available in industrial or automotive-qualified variants with specified endurance of 4 million cycles per byte at 25C, and 400,000 cycles per byte at 150C. Total device endurance is characterized at 1,000 million cycles, and specified data retention is 200 years at 55C.

The extended cycling performance and longer data retention simplify design by allowing storage of frequently updated data as well as slow-changing parameters, avoiding memory-hungry strategies for extending the lifetime of standard EEPROMs. In addition, the total endurance allows use in applications such as automotive or medical systems that must update key parameters frequently as environmental conditions change (data-logging).

Samples are available immediately, and ST is now taking orders for production quantities. Industrial devices are priced from $0.20 for the 32Kbit IC M24C32-RMN6TP, and automotive devices from $0.54 for the 32Kbit SPI M95320-DRMN3TP/K.
