Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ:CY) has just released 3 new SRAMs that have a 32 bit wide bus thereby allowing them to play with 32 bit processors and microcontrollers, according to a press release from Cypress.
SRAMs are often used to complement the larger DRAMs as they have a much simpler design, lower power consumption, but also lower capacities. The new SRAMs are called MoBL SRAMs with MoBL being short for More Battery Life. The SRAMs are designed to go in to designs like in telecommunications, computers, peripherals, and consumer, medical and military domains to enhance system performance.
The new 128-Mbit (CY62192ESL), 64-Mbit (CY62182ESL) and 32-Mbit (CY62172ESL) MoBL devices offer 32-bit I/O configuration with 55-ns access time (TAA) and a wide voltage range of 1.7V to 5.5V. These low-power asynchronous SRAMs are available in a RoHS-compliant 119-BGA package with a footprint of 14.0 x 22.0 x 2.4 mm.
The new devices are manufactured in a 90nm process technology, but Cypress is already working on the next generation to come out in 65nm technology. These upcoming devices will also support built-in ECC, just in case.S|A
