Tekmos Introduces New Flash Memory Family

AUSTIN, Texas, February 2, 2015 -- Tekmos, Inc., a leader specializing in sustainable solutions in the development and manufacturing of solving End of Life and high temperature microprocessors for extreme environments up to 300ºC, introduces four more Flash Memory types to help solve obsolescence issues: TK28F256, TK28F512, TK28F010, and TK28F020. Many manufacturers are having trouble locating Flash Memory parts, due to discontinuance by other suppliers. Each Tekmos Flash Memory type is drop‐in, pin for pin, replacement. Each has the same low current characteristics as the other 28Fxxx memories and each retains memory when the power is off.

Having drop‐in replacements for these part types has shown to be a very cost effective way to extend the life of products when the original component manufacturer discontinues a part. The availability of a drop-in replacement eliminates the difficult decision of whether to redesign printed circuit board or discontinue a product. Each of the four memory types listed above is currently available in 32 plastic lead PLCCs. The 32 pin plastic DIP and the 32 lead TSOP versions can also be made available.
