Cypress was the first NOR flash memory supplier to identify the market requirement for a high-speed, 8-bit bus and introduced the HyperBus interface in 2014, ushering in a new class of high-performance NOR flash and RAM solutions that enable instant-on functionality for autonomous driving and industry 4.0 applications. Cypress' HyperBus-based memories include high-density HyperFlash™ NOR Flash devices with the bandwidth required for the highest-performance embedded systems and high-speed HyperRAM™ self-refresh Dynamic RAM (DRAM) devices for systems requiring expanded scratchpad memory. More information on Cypress' HyperBus interface and industry-leading high-performance memory portfolio is available at http://www.cypress.com/products/hyperbus-memory.
"Cypress continues to be a driving member of the JEDEC working committee
that developed and proposed the xSPI standard," said
The xSPI standard defines requirements for the compatibility of high-performance x8 serial interfaces, including read and write commands, electrical characteristics, signaling protocols for command and data transfers, and a standard pin-out in a Ball Grid Array (BGA) footprint.
"We firmly believe an open industry standard from a recognized
standardization body such as JEDEC is the best way to generate broad
market support that benefits both customers and suppliers," said
About Cypress HyperBus Interface
The efficient 12-pin Cypress HyperBus interface consists of an 8-pin address/data bus, a differential clock (2 signals), one chip select and a read data strobe for the controller, reducing the overall cost of a system. Memories based on the interface enable faster systems with quicker response times and rich user experiences. The HyperBus interface enables a wide range of high-performance applications, such as automotive instrument clusters, infotainment and navigation systems and factory automation systems.
