But is that really a "negative"? :-)
In my book, this would be a very big plus, even more so for the larger cards.

I once lost a lot of stuff stored in my (no-name) 2 MB SRAM card, when I didn't use the 48GX for a while (after switching to the 50g). For some odd reasons they designed in a tiny CR1216 cell, although there would have been enough room for a CR2320. #-| The CR1216 needs to be replaced more than once a year - really annoying.

Not much of an issue for my (Epson OEM) 128 KB SRAM card, as its CR2016 cell lasts for many ages.

Regarding FRAM, given that FRAM still has a limited (though high) number of write-erase cycles, I would not consider it perfect as RAM extension (in a device where the built-in RAM is battery powered, anyway), but it certainly sounds great for cards used for data storage.

Greetings,

Matthias
