Expanding its line of legacy low-power CMOS SRAMs, Alliance Memory has announced an 8M IC (512k x 16-bit) in the 48-pin 12x20mm TSOP-I package. Available from a very limited number of suppliers and recently discontinued by another manufacturer, the AS6C8016-55TIN operates from a single power supply of 2.7 to 3.6V and offers a fast access time of 55ns.
The device features low power consumption with a typical operating current of 30mA and standby current of 1.5µA. The IC provides high reliability and power savings for low-power portable electronics as well as industrial, telecomms, medical, automotive and networking applications. It is particularly well-suited for battery backup non-volatile memory.
The AS6C8016-55TIN is fabricated using very high-performance, high-reliability CMOS technology, and its standby current is stable within the operating temperature range from -40 to +85°C. The RoHS-compliant device offers fully static operation and tri-state output and it features a data retention voltage of 1.2V minimum. All inputs and outputs are fully TTL-compatible.
Alliance Memory's legacy ICs provide reliable drop-in, pin-for-pin-compatible replacements for a number of similar solutions. The AS6C8016-55TIN is the latest in the company's full range of low-power SRAM products, which include devices with densities of 64k, 256k, 1M, 2M, 4M, 8M, 16M and 32M.
Samples and production quantities of the AS6C8016-55TIN are available now, with a lead time of 6-8 weeks for large orders. Pricing starts at $2.95 each in 1,000 unit quantities.
