This FRAM TinyShield allows you to add memory to your TinyDuino projects that can read and write at a virtually instant rate. Built around the Fujitsu MB85RS1MT, this board allows for some extra processing memory when your Arduino device is powered on and retains it even while power is shut off.

The FRAM TinyShield is low power and works through the SPI interface. It has 1Mbit of storage and is byte-addressable.  Example code is provided to make it simple to add FRAM support to your projects.
