Silicon Storage Tech
Silicon Storage Technology, Inc. (SST) was a Sunnyvale, California, USA, technology company producing non-volatile memory devices and related products. SST supplies of NOR flash and other integrated circuits for high-volume applications.
In April 2010, Microchip completed the acquisition for about $292 million. Microchip’s SST Serial and Parallel Flash Memory features products with high performance, superior reliability and low power consumption.
Microchip’s SST Serial Flash offers lower pin count, less space, smaller PCBs, reduced system costs and lower power consumption. The industry’s fastest erase times mean cost savings during manufacturing. The 25 series SPI family is among the industry’s lowest power 3.0 V and 1.8 V products. The award-winning 26 series SQI® family provides all the small size and low power advantages of Serial Flash with performance rivaling that of Parallel Flash.
Based on SuperFlash® technology, SST’s Parallel Flash collection features products with high performance, superior reliability and low power consumption. The industry’s fastest erase times mean cost savings during manufacturing. The 38 and 39 Series MPF™ (Multi-Purpose Flash) products, including MPF+ and Advanced MPF+, provide fast read and program times with features such as Erase-Suspend/Erase-Resume, Boot Block, Security ID, Hardware Reset, and heightened protection features.
