Alliance Memory has expanded its line of legacy low-power CMOS SRAMs with a new 8M IC (512K x 16 bit) in the 48-pin 12mm x 20mm TSOP-I package. Available from a limited number of suppliers and recently discontinued by another manufacturer, the AS6C8016-55TIN operates from a single power supply of 2.7V to 3.6V and offers a fast access time of 55ns, says the company. 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 and industrial, telecom, medical, automotive, and networking applications, and is particularly well-suited to battery backup non-volatile memory applications. The AS6C8016-55TIN is fabricated using high-performance, high-reliability CMOS technology, and its standby current is stable within the operating temperature range of -40C to +85C. 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. The 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, says the company.
