The Xicor X24C45 is a serial 256 bit NOVRAM featuring a static RAM configured 16 x 16, overlaid bit-by-bit with a nonvolatile E2PROM array. The X24C45 is fabricated with Xicor’s Advanced CMOS Floating Gate technology.
The Xicor NOVRAM design allows data to be transferred between the two memory arrays by means of software commands or external hardware inputs. A store operation (RAM data to E2PROM) is completed in 5ms or less and a recall operation (E2PROM data to RAM) is completed in 2µs or less.
The X24C45 also includes the AUTOSTORE feature, a user selectable feature that automatically performs a store operation when VCC falls below a preset threshold.
Xicor NOVRAMs are designed for unlimited write operations to RAM, either from the host or recalls from E2PROM and a minimum 1,000,000 store operations. Inherent data retention is specified to be greater than 100 years.
