Advanced memory products for the next generation of road vehicles
In memory functions, the sophisticated automotive electronics systems of tomorrow will need higher bandwidth and higher memory density while allowing for the tight cost pressures which affect the automotive industry. Lowering power consumption will also be crucial as automotive manufacturers uncover new ways to save fuel and to extend the driving range of battery-powered electric vehicles.
Winbond, a supplier of Flash and DRAM to the automotive industry, is responding by developing new generations of automotive-qualified memory products which offer the performance, reliability and low power consumption which the automotive industry demands.
Support for long automotive life cycles
The WPLP (Winbond Product Longevity Program) is a long-standing scheme for assuring sustained availability of Winbond memory products that are designed into automotive systems. This longevity program supports the long production lifetimes of automotive products, which can extend to ten years for specialty or industrial vehicles.
Under the WPLP, Winbond guarantees that selected products will be available in mass production for a minimum of ten years from the date of the product’s introduction. Automotive-grade products are subject to 12 months’ notice of end-of-life (EOL) and the placement of final orders, and 24 months’ notice of the final shipment date.
