Boost MCU Performance in Execute-in-Place Applications with Adesto’s Flash Memory

Tuesday, September 3, 2019 - 16:15


IoT designs are moving to the Execute-in-Place (XiP) architecture, however, the power consumption of the high-performance memory solutions used in these new designs can exceed the project’s power budget.


Adesto EcoXiP™ Octal Flash memory boosts the CoreMark™ performance of cache controllers and solves the power consumption issue by delivering 266Mbytes/sec at half the power of other octal flash solutions.


Adesto EcoXiP especially benefits applications employing:

      • The new generation of flash-less high performance MCUs
      • Fast boot / instant-on features    
      • Code extension memory
      • Reduced SRAM systems
      • Octal memory bus
      • Graphical UIs


Product Samples and Evaluation Kits Now Available.


Product samples are available and the evaluation kit is available to help make it easy to get the most from EcoXiP.
