Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (San Jose, CA) introduced a family of 16 Mb nonvolatile Static Random Access Memories (nvSRAMs), including devices with asynchronous parallel and asynchronous Open NAND Flash Interface (ONFI) Standard 1.0 interfaces. The The 16 Mb nvSRAMs are said to be the fastest high-density asynchronous nonvolatile RAMs on the market, with access times as low as 25 ns. The company offers the new devices with an optional integrated Real-Time Clock (RTC), which enables time-stamping of critical data to be logged. Cypress nvSRAMs feature infinite read, write and recall cycles, with 20-year data retention at 85˚C and 150 years at 65˚C. The 16 Mb nvSRAM family is intended for mission-critical applications such as:
- High-end programmable logic controllers (PLCs)
- High-speed data/error loggers in storage equipment, networking equipment, avionics systems, and electronic gaming machines.
