Microchip Launches Serial Flash Memory Device Development Kit

Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced the availability of its Serial SuperFlash® Kit 1 (part # AC243005-1), a new development kit that enables designers to evaluate Microchip’s 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.
