Ramtron International, a developer and supplier of nonvolatile ferroelectric random access memory (FRAM) and integrated semiconductor products, has expanded its portfolio of serial memory products with the launch of the FM24C512, a half-megabit nonvolatile FRAM product with an industry standard 2-wire serial interface.

The FM24C512 is targeted for use in applications that require high capacity data collection, such as utility metering and real-time configuration storage, said the company.

"The FM24C512 provides our 256Kb FRAM customers with a footprint-compatible upgrade path that doubles their data collection capacity," noted Mike Alwais, VP of marketing at Ramtron. "In particular, many of our metering customers have asked for more FRAM storage capacity to support the trend to collecting more energy-consumption data. Having supplied 256Kb FRAM products for the largest metering installation in the world, and with new advanced metering infrastructures on the horizon, the 512Kb FRAM is a natural extension of our offerings to the meter market."
