Microchip unveils serial Flash memory device development kit

Microchip has announced the availability of a new development kit that enables designers to evaluate its SPI and SQI serial Flash memory devices.

The Serial SuperFlash Kit 1 includes three serial Flash PICtail Plus daughter boards that are populated with the SST25VF016B, SST25VF064C and SST26VF032 serial Flash devices, respectively. The daughter boards interface with Microchip's Explorer 16 development board and work with the MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment. This, claims Microchip, enables the quick creation of code and shortens development time. "As Microchip expands its serial Flash portfolio, first class development tools such as the Serial SuperFlash Kit 1 and Explorer 16 development board, enable customers to quickly evaluate Microchip's serial Flash devices and develop firmware for their designs," said Randy Drwinga, vice president of Microchip's SuperFlash Memory Division." The kit is available for purchas now.
