Micron M29F 5V Parallel NOR Flash Products Now Available Direct From Alliance Memory

KIRKLAND, Wash., Sept. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alliance Memory today announced that the company is now an authorized reseller for Micron’s M29F 5V parallel NOR Flash devices, which Micron previously discontinued with product change notification #32160 (last time buy: March 2018).  Micron is continuing to produce these devices for Alliance Memory and intends to only supply Alliance Memory for any new orders placed through mid-2021. Micron’s M29F devices are compatible with industry AM29F and MX29F devices, and a technical note is available from Micron’s website detailing how to migrate from AM29F devices to M29F devices.

“We are committed to meeting our customers’ legacy component needs and have had great success working with Micron to provide continued support for a variety of devices, including 512Mb SDRAMs and 8Gb DDR3L SDRAMs,” said David Bagby, president and CEO of Alliance Memory. “We’re looking forward to continuing that success with these M29F NOR Flash parts, which will provide our customers with a steady supply of 5V parallel NOR Flash for a minimum of two more years.”

“Micron is pleased to work with Alliance Memory to provide loyal customers of our M29F NOR Flash products with a trusted source for supply beyond our stated PCN last-time shipment date,” said Richard De Caro, director of NOR Flash and emerging memory solutions of the Embedded Business Unit at Micron. “We value our customers, and we always strive to find solutions that provide supply flexibility and longevity.”

The following Micron-made M29F 5V NOR Flash parts are now available directly from Alliance Memory:

The Cryptography Handbook

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

The Cryptography Handbook is designed to be a quick study guide for a product development engineer, taking an engineering rather than theoretical approach. In this series, we start with a general overview and then define the characteristics of a secure cryptographic system. We then describe various cryptographic concepts and provide an implementation-centric explanation of physically unclonable function (PUF) technology. We hope that this approach will give the busy engineer a quick understanding of the basic concepts of cryptography and provide a relatively fast way to integrate security in his/her design.

TensorFlow to RTL with High-Level Synthesis

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Bridging the gap from the AI and data science world to the RTL and hardware design world can be challenging. High-level synthesis (HLS) can provide a mechanism to get from AI frameworks like TensorFlow into synthesizable RTL, enabling the development of high-performance inference architectures. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Dave Apte of Cadence Design Systems about doing AI design with HLS.
