PIGNORIS CAPIO, ROM. civil law. The name given to one of the legis actiones of the Roman law. It consisted chiefly in the taking. of a pledge, and was in fact a mode of execution. It was confined to special cases determined by positive law or by custom, such as taxes, duties, rents, &c., and is comparable in some respects to distresses at common law. The proceeding took place in the presence of a praetor.

The most important features of the platform are the capability of integration of RF, eFlash and EEPROM designs at the same technology platform, and low mask count manufacturing down to 24 photo layers.
It also includes an EEPROM memory (of 2kbits or 4kbits) and an SPI or I2C interface for communication with an external microcontroller.
For applications including smart meters and other measurement devices, as well as industrial machinery and medical devices such as hearing aids - all of which to date have required 1-2 Mbit non-volatile memory with a serial interface - it is now possible to replace conventional EEPROM with Fujitsu Semiconductor's new FRAM products.
By including 64 bytes of SRAM, 2 Kbits of EEPROM and a 128-bit Unique ID, which can be ordered blank or preprogrammed with a MAC address, extra memory devices may not be needed.
India, June 23 -- ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN) a premier supplier of high performance silicon solutions for energy efficient electronics,has released new EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) devices for the automotive, medical, and consumer markets.
EEPROM stores configuration settings and stores sensor correction coefficients in the event of shutdowns or power loss.

The memory is accessed using an SPI bus and is functionally similar to an SPI EEPROM. But unlike actual EEPROM devices, which experience data loss and even device failure when exposed to significant doses of gamma radiation, GammaSafe memory tokens have been proven to withstand up to 45 kGy (4.5 Mrad) of gamma radiation with no data loss.
The programming information resides inside the AUF's EEPROM memory, making the unit immune to power failures for 10 years, according to the company.
