ROHM EEPROM First-in-Family Support from BPM

by | Jun 11, 2021 | Announcements, New Device Support

First major supplier to support ROHM BR24L04F-WE2 I²C BUS EEPROM

rohm eeprom BR24L04F-WE2 skematicBPM is pleased to announce 9th Generation support for ROHM Electronics EEPROM* BR24L04F-WE2. It’s ideal for maximum data retention projects (up to 40 years). BPM is the only company among our major competitors (Data I/O, System General, Elnec, etc.)  that currently provides programming for this device**. Additionally, ROHM EEPROM uses BPM’s universal socket FVE4ASMR08SOPA and is fully compatible with BPM’s 9th Gen manual programmers (2900 and 2900L) and automated programming systems (3901, 3928, and 4910).

*EEPROM is short for Electrically Erasable Programmable ROM, EEPROMs are a type of non-volatile memory that allows data to be written to each address via electric signals. ROHM EEPROMs are capable of an industry best 1 million rewrites and retain data for up to 40 years. ROHM’s unique double cell technology has been incorporated into the entire family, resulting in remarkably high reliability.
