Aimed applications such as the aerospace and defence market, Macronix' MX66U51235FME feature high performance and extended temperature range operation. The flash memory is optimised for Xilinx 7 Series and UltraScale FPGAs.

MX66U51235FME is a 512Mb density Quad SPI NOR flash device. It was specifically developed to support a growing number of applications that require high density NOR with 1.8V operating voltage and an extended temperature range from -55°C to 125°C (designated by the “E” in the part number).

Features of the MX66U51235FME-13G include;

512 Mbit Quad SPI NOR

Capable of x1, x2, or x4 input & output

1.75V to 2.0V Vcc for core & I/O voltage operation

Up to 75 MHz READ capability

-55°C to 125°C extended temperature rating

Available in 16-pin SOP package

“Macronix is rated as no. 2 in the NOR Flash market by independent sources... this partnership with Xilinx demonstrates our commitment to our ecosystem partners and our advanced engineering capabilities,” said Ful-Long Ni, Vice President of Marketing at Macronix. “We look forward to further cooperation with Xilinx to create innovative and new memory architectures in the future.”
