Cypress Adds to Product Suite
The pipelined and flowthrough versions of NoBL and standard synchronous devices are now available in 1024K x 18 and 512K x 36 configurations at 3.3-V and 2.5-V. The 2.5-V offering addresses the trend toward lower operating voltages. These parts consume less power than earlier-generation 5-V devices and are ideal for interfacing with the 2.5-V ASIC devices used in the networking systems being developed today. The flowthrough versions of these devices support bus speeds up to 115 MHz; the pipelined versions support bus speeds up to 200 MHz. These 0.15-micron devices offer high density, low operating power and fast data transfer.
"The expansion of our 18-Mbit family provides Cypress a leadership position in synchronous, networking-optimized memories, strengthening significantly what has become a $200M a year business for us," said Tony Alvarez, senior vice president of Cypress's Memory Products Division. "Our expanded portfolio is a direct response to the needs of our strategic communications accounts, to whom we already provide a broad range of solutions in logic, timing technology, specialty memories, and physical-layer devices."
