FCRAM bursts onto the scene

Fujitsu has developed a new 128Mbit mobile Fast Cycle RAM device for 3G mobile phone applications.

The MB82DBR08163 FCRAM adopts burst-mode operations compliant with the Common Specifications for Mobile RAM (COSMORAM) – specifications that were set as the result of an agreement between Fujitsu, NEC and Toshiba in February this year.

The burst mode of the new device provides a clock access time of 12 nsec (at 66 MHz), but Fujitsu says it plans to increase the burst frequencies to 80MHz and 100MHz in future devices.

The MB82DBR08163 comes in a 71-pin FBGA package, and is also available in either chip or wafer form to accommodate special mounting requirements.

It will start shipping on September 1, 2003.
