Cypress Introduces High-Performance Synchronous SRAM Family With On-Chip Error-Correcting Code for Superior Reliability

36Mb Synchronous SRAMs Offer Industry's Lowest Soft Error Rate; Deliver Lower Power Consumption and Pin-to-Pin Compatibility to Existing Devices

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 26, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY), the Static Random Access Memory (SRAM) market leader, today announced the availability of the industry's highest-density synchronous SRAMs with on-chip Error-Correcting Code (ECC). The integrated ECC feature enables the new 36Mb synchronous SRAMs to provide the highest levels of data reliability, simplifying designs for a wide variety of military, communication and data processing applications. Cypress plans to expand the family of high-performance synchronous SRAMs with ECC with additional densities this year.

Soft errors caused by background radiation can corrupt memory content, resulting in a loss of critical data. A hardware ECC block in Cypress's new synchronous SRAMs performs all error correction functions inline, without user intervention, delivering best-in-class Soft Error Rate (SER) performance. The synchronous SRAMs with ECC are pin-compatible with current synchronous SRAMs, enabling customers to enhance SER and system reliability while retaining board layout. Additionally, the new SRAMs help reduce power consumption by as much as 36% over competing solutions. A video introducing Cypress's synchronous SRAMs with ECC is available at www.cypress.com/syncECCvideo.

"Cypress is the worldwide market leader in synchronous SRAMs, and this new family of devices with on-chip ECC demonstrates our commitment to expanding our portfolio of standard synchronous, NoBL® and QDR® SRAMs," said Oliver Pohland, business unit director for Synchronous SRAMs at Cypress. "As with our entire SRAM portfolio, these new devices are backed by Cypress's best-in-class manufacturing and customer support."

Availability

The new 36Mb synchronous SRAMs are currently available in industrial temperature grade in RoHS-compliant 100-pin TQFP and 165-ball BGA packages.
