Cypress Semiconductor has Launched its 32-Mbit and 64-Mbit fast asynchronous SRAMs, providing very fast response times and the smallest footprint at these densities. The “CY7C1071DV33” 32-Mbit 3V and “CY7C1081DV33” 64-Mbit 3V fast asynchronous SRAMs offer both 16-bit and 8-bit I/O configuration. The new 32-Mbit and 64-Mbit SRAMs offer very fast access times of 12 ns. They are available in RoHS-compliant 48-BGA packages with a footprint of 8.0 x 9.5 x 1.2 mm and 8.0 x 9.5 x 1.4 mm, respectively. The new fast asynchronous SRAMs are fabricated using Cypress’ “90-nm C9” CMOS technology. Cypressâs broad portfolio of fast asynchronous and low-power SRAMs includes densities ranging from 4 Kbits to 64 Mbits in 90-nm process technology for POS terminals, gaming machines, storage, automotive and more.
