Failure is not an option for mission-critical applications such as self-driving cars and factory equipment handling costly materials. For these applications to work every time, they require smarter system memory that is long-lasting, dependable and designed for functional safety compliance. Cypress’ Semper devices were designed to achieve the ISO 26262 functional safety standard using the Cortex-M0 processor to enable safe boot, processing of complex embedded algorithms, and functional safety diagnostics. The Semper family includes Cypress’ EnduraFlex™ architecture, which uses the Arm core to independently optimize the memory array for frequent data writing or for long data retention. The family also supports demanding instant-on applications with up to 400 MBps of read bandwidth.
“Traditional methods of pure memory design do not address the market’s
quickly evolving demands for trusted intelligence, which led us to adopt
a completely new approach with standardized IP and embedded computing
“In an increasingly connected world, there is greater demand for safe,
flexible, low power processing across a broad range of applications,”
