13 September 2012 Cypress extends non volatile memory portfolio with 16bit nvSRAMs Cypress extends non volatile memory portfolio with 16bit nvSRAMs Cypress Semiconductor has introduced a new range of 16Mbit non volatile static random access memories (nvSRAMs), including devices with synchronous nand flash memory interfaces. Offering access times down to 25ns, the series is said to be the first with the ability to interface directly with open nand flash interface (ONFI) and Toggle nand bus controllers. The devices are offered with an optional integrated real time clock that enables time stamping of critical data to be logged. They also feature infinite read, write and recall cycles, with 20 year data retention, making them suitable for applications requiring continuous high speed writing of data and absolute non volatile data security. "The new 16Mbit family pushes the envelope of speed, density and performance while delivering the same superior reliability that is the hallmark of our nvSRAM portfolio," said Cypress' Babak Taheri. "The synchronous nand interfaces open multiple new markets to Cypress nvSRAMs and add to the breadth and flexibility of our overall non volatile offerings."
