Cypress Ships 'FIFO Memories'

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cypress Semiconductor (NYSE: CY) today announced production shipments of the 3.3 V versions of its x36 First In/First Out (FIFO) high-performance memories targeted at communications applications. The new 3.3 V Cypress FIFO memories transfer data at speeds up to 133 MHz, making them an ideal choice for memory-buffer solutions. The 1 Mbit, x36 bi-directional FIFOs provide two independent ports, each capable of handling 36 bits at up to 133 MHz. The ports are fully independent and allow simultaneous read and write operations, enabling easy interfacing between critical system components. These communications memories now are available in both 3.3 V and 5 V versions, packaged in both 120- and 128-pin TQFPs.

“Offering up to 10-Gbps of total bandwidth, these FIFOs are consistent with Cypress’s strategy to maximize specialty memory bandwidths, a critical attribute in bandwidth-hungry datacom applications,” said Richard Quon, Cypress product marketing manager for communications memories. “This family of products represent yet another high performance Cypress product to service the bandwidth needs of our communications customers while also addressing the trend toward lower operating voltages.”
