ISSI has announced what it claims is the industry’s first 8Mbit high-speed asynchronous monolithic backward compatible SRAM. ISSI offers the device in several packages including a TSOP package that is compatible with the industry standard 4Mbit SRAM – with the exception of the extra address line.
ISSI’s 8Mbit high-speed asynchronous SRAM is available in both x16 and x8 configurations. The x16 (IS61LV51216) and x8 (IS61LV10248) feature access times of 8nsec, a typical operating current of 90mA, and typical standby current less than 5mA. The devices operate in the 3.3V range and are fabricated using 0.15micron CMOS technology.
The devices are targeted for applications in networking/broadband, digital consumer, mobile communications, and automotive markets. They include, but are not limited to, VOIP, WLAN, telecom applications, POS terminals and other handheld applications.
For quantities of 10,000, the 8Mbit SRAM is priced at $11.95.
The x16 (IS61LV51216) is available in 48-ball mBGA, and 44-pin TSOPII JEDEC standard packages.
The x8 (IS61LV10248) is available in 48-ball and 36-ball mBGA, and 44-pin TSOPII JEDEC standard packages.
Samples are available now, with volume production shipments beginning in Q2 2003.
