World’s Most Reliable Memory

Microchip has been a leading supplier of memory products for over 25 years. Microchip’s broad portfolio of memory devices includes Serial EEPROM, Serial EERAM, Parallel EEPROM, OTP EPROM, Serial Flash, Parallel Flash, Serial SRAM, NVSRAM, and CryptoMemory. Innovative low-power designs and extensive testing have ensured industry leading robustness and endurance along with best-in-class quality.

Serial EEPROM


Serial EEPROMs are low power, non-volatile memory devices with robust operating ranges, small size and byte alterability, making them ideal for data and program storage. Serial EEPROMs can be written more than 1 Million times.
Serial EEPROM
  • 128 bits – 4Mbit
  • Available in I2C, SPI, Microwire, Single-Wire, and UNI/O®

Serial EERAM


EERAM is a nonvolatile SRAM with a shadow EEPROM backup. The data is backed up on to the EEPROM automatically on power down in the presence of a small external capacitor. Unlike NVSRAM, no external battery is needed. This device combines the reliability of an EEPROM with the performance of an SRAM. EERAM offers unlimited Erase and Write cycles to the memory
47L16 chip
  • 4Kb – 16Kb I2C
  • Available in SOIC-8 and TSSOP-8

Serial Flash


Microchip’s Serial Quad Interface (SQI™) and SPI Flash memories are manufactured with our proprietary, high-performance CMOS SuperFlash® Technology, significantly improving performance (erase any block in less than 25 ms) and reliability (100 years data retention) while lowering power consumption.
Serial Flash
  • 512 Kb - 64 Mb in 3V and multiple densities in 1.8V
  • SQI™ Flash – Up to 104 MHz and includes advanced security features

Parallel Flash


Microchip’s multi-purpose Parallel Flash memories are manufactured with our proprietary, high-performance CMOS SuperFlash® Technology, significantly improving performance (erase any block in less than 25 ms) and reliability (100 years data retention) while lowering power consumption.

    Parallel Flash
    • 1 Mb - 64 Mb in 3V and multiple densities in 5V and 1.8V
    • Superior read performance and security features available in Advanced MPF+

    Serial SRAM


    Serial SRAM is a standalone volatile memory that offers designers an easy and inexpensive way to add more RAM to their application. These 8-pin devices have unlimited endurance and zero write times.
    Serial SRAM
    • 64 Kbit - 1 Mbit
    • SPI, SDI and SQI Bus Modes

    Serial NVSRAM


    Serial NVSRAM offers low cost, non-volatile RAM storage via an external battery and is ideal for applications that need to write very often to the memory.
    Serial NVSRAM
    • 512 Kb - 1 Mb
    • Battery backed

    Parallel EEPROM


    Parallel EEPROMs provide robust, non-volatile memory with faster read times than Serial EEPROM for direct code execution and high-reliability data storage applications such as telecommunications, avionics, military, etc.

      28 pin chip
      • 64 Kb - 4Mb with 2.7V and 5V options
      • Parallel data access, similar to static RAM for read and write cycles.

      OTP EEPROM


      One-Time Programmable EPROM technology with fast parallel access times provide secure, unalterable memory for excellent firmware and data protection. 
      atmel chip
      • 256 Kb – 8Mb with 5V, 3V, and Battery-Voltage™ 2.7V options
      • Rapid Programming Algorithm - 100μs/byte

      CryptoMemory


      Secure EEPROMs for applications requiring comprehensive data protection, including mutual authentication between device and host. CryptoMemory provides a truly secure means of preventing product counterfeiting and piracy. 
      28 pin chip
      • 1 Kb – 256 Kb with 2.7V to 3.6V and 2.7V to 5.5V options
      • 64-bit embedded hardware encryption engine, four sets of nonreadable, 64-bit authentication keys, and four sets of nonreadable, 64-bit session encryption keys
