Subject: FRAM and Reliability
I am thinking about using a Ferroelectric Nonvolatile RAM component (FRAM), but I'm not familiar with the reliability of the technology. Does anyone out there have positive or negative comments that they could give me? The data sheet for the part in question states "A ferroelectric random access memory or FRAM is nonvolatile but operates in other respects as a RAM. It provides reliable data retention for 10 years while eliminating the complexities, overhead, and system level reliability problems caused by EEPROM and other nonvolatile memories." I guess on a system level, it may be more reliable; but as a component, how does it stack up against more standard RAM technologies... Thanks in advance for comments, Paul Hare e: Compliance Engineer w: 978.206.9179 Pirus Networks f: 978.206.9199 43 Nagog Park c: 508.450.0376 Acton, MA 01720 i:
