During this video, we'll explain what a Memory Chip is as well as how to select the right one for your application from our line-up of Memory Chip products.

A semiconductor memory chip is an electronic device for data storage which is implemented on a semiconductor integrated circuit. Data is accessed by the semiconductor chip through a binary memory address. Semiconductor memory chips are designed with a certain word length which is the number of 1-bit cells that share the same memory address. The amount of data which can be stored in a memory chip defines the number of bits. Through the combination of several integrated circuits, memory may be arranged for a larger word length and/or a larger address space than what is initially offered by the chip.

Future Electronics carries a full selection of memory chips of all types and sizes. We stock every kind from Static RAM to DRAM, EEPROMs, Flash memory and FRAM, among many other types of memory.

Future Electronics offers a full memory chip selection from several manufacturers including Alliance Memory Inc, Cypress, Everspin Technologies, Greenliant, Macronix, Microchip, ON Semiconductor, Renesas Electronics, Simtek and STMicroelectronics, among others.

All types of electronic devices can use semiconductor memory chips. They can be found in as many fields as: PCs, digital cameras, notebooks, smart cards, aerospace and military systems, cellular telephones and smart phones, digital music devices and media players, digital cameras, cellular base stations, black box solutions, book readers, PDAs, power meters, security systems and removable storage devices among other uses. Flash technology can be found in computer BIOS, PCMCIA cards, video game cartridges and modems. Bridges, routers and switches use FIFO memory in communications and networking to hold data packets that are en route to a given destination.

There are several different kinds of Memory chips at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including Nominal Supply Voltage, Temperature Range, Memory Organization, Maximum Access Time, Memory Density, Interface Type, Operating Mode and packaging type, among others. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.

If the quantity of Memory Chips required is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our products in tube or tray quantities that will avoid unneeded surplus.
