|Hitachi Releases Industry's Fastest 16-Mbit Low-Power SRAMs|
|25 ns access time achieved for mobile phones, portable information terminals, and industrial applications|
Tokyo, February 15, 2002Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501) today announced the HM62V16102I and HM62A16102I Series of 16-Mbit low-power SRAMs, offering the industry's fastest access time of 25 ns, for use in mobile phones, portable information terminals, and industrial applications. Also being announced are the HM62V16100I and HM62V8200I Series with a 45 ns access time. Sample shipments of all these products will begin on February 28, 2002 in Japan.
These series offer low-voltage operation and compact size in addition to high-speed operation, making them ideal for use in portable products.
Low-power SRAMs are used for work memory, phone number list and image data storage, and backup memory in mobile phones and portable information terminals, and Hitachi currently has small, low-voltage, low-current-dissipation 4-Mbit and 8-Mbit models suitable for low-voltage systems in mass production. However, recent rapid advances in mobile phone functionality and performance, together with the need to handle photographic and other image data, will bring a demand for even larger capacity and higher speed. To meet this demand, Hitachi has developed low-power SRAMs offering 16-Mbit capacity together with a 25 ns access time.
[About these Products]
The HM62V16102I and HM62A16102I Series achieve high speed, compact size, and low power consumption through the use of the latest 0.13 m process.
In addition, the HM62V16102I and HM62A16102I Series include a 35 ns access time model, and the HM62V16100I Series includes a TSOP package (0.5 mm pitch 48-pin TSOP Type I) version for industrial applications.
The word configuration is 2M words 8 bits in the HM62V8200I Series and 1M words 16 bits in the other three series.
Future plans include enhancement of the product lineup with extension of the present technology to 4-Mbit and 8-Mbit capacities.
