Cypress Extends Fast Asynchronous SRAM Portfolio to 12 Mbits

9/13/2002 - Cypress Semiconductor, the leader in the fast asynchronous SRAM market, expanded its fast asynchronous portfolio to include the industry’s first 12-Mbit device. With the broadest SRAM portfolio in the industry, Cypress offers densities ranging from 4 Kbit to 16 Mbit for products targeting digital signal processing (DSP) and applications such as asymmetrical digital subscriber line (ADSL) modems.

"As a pioneer in fast asynchronous SRAMs, Cypress continues to meet customer demand for cost-effective solutions," said Walt Anderson, tactical product manager for Cypress’s Memory Products Division. "This higher-density, smaller-footprint SRAM will allow designers to upgrade existing systems and save board space and cost by using a single 12-Mbit device instead of several lower density SRAMs."

The new 12-Mbit asynchronous SRAM is manufactured using Cypress’s 0.15-micron, RAM7TM process technology. This cost-effective process enables speeds of up to 8 ns and offers a 512-Kbit x 24 organization in a 119-pin BGA package. The CY7C1012AV offers a high-density, low-cost device for high-performance applications.

Availability and Price
Engineering samples of the 12-Mbit asynchronous fast SRAMs — including the x24, 3.3V — are available now. Production quantities will be available in November with prices starting at $40 in volumes of 1,000 units.
