| Toshiba Introduce World's Fastest 8Mb SRAM for Mobile Phones
28 January, 2002
Tokyo--Toshiba Corporation today announced that it will commercialize 8Mb low power consumption SRAMs designed to maximize the operation of mobile phones. Manufactured with industry-leading 0.15-micron meter (m) process technology, the new SRAMs have a 40-nanosecond (ns) access time, the fastest time yet achieved.
Starting in the first quarter of 2002, Toshiba will supply both wafers for multi-chip package manufacturers and packaged products based on customer choices. The company will follow this up in the second quarter of the year by launching 4Mb and 16Mb low power consumption SRAMs manufactured with the same advanced process technology.
The performance of the new 8Mb low power consumption SRAMs will reduce wait times in the memory system of mobile phones, enhancing overall system speed and performance. Devices operating with a 2.3 to 3.6V external power supply will support current 2.5V and 3.3V systems. Toshiba is also looking to future advances with devices supporting and growing demand for lower voltage products that operate with a 1.65 to 2.2V external power supply.
A wide package lineup covers thin small outline package (TSOP) type-1, 12mm x 20mm and 12mm x 14mm; and a fine ball grid array (FBGA), 7mm x 7mm. The plating of the IC leads is lead free.
Samples of packaged products will be available from February 2002 at 1,800 yen.
**Current at VDD maximum : operating mode/ standby mode
