Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced it has begun sampling the industry's first Quad Data Rate II+ (QDRII+) and Double Data Rate II+ (DDRII+) SRAM devices. According to the company, these memory chips deliver the highest-density and highest-bandwidth, enabling up to 50 per cent more system-level bandwidth than existing QDRII and DDRII products. The devices accelerate read/write capabilities in a variety of data-intensive applications, including switches, routers, servers, storage appliances, wireless basestations and test equipment.

Operating at speeds up to 500MHz, the QDRII+ and DDRII+ products offer a higher bandwidth than QDRII and DDRII, respectively, up to 72Gbps, while using the same footprints and a 165-pin, FBGA package. The SRAM devices are supported by the QDR consortium and will be pin-compatible with products from the other consortium members, including NEC, IDT, Renesas and Samsung. Cypress's QDRII+/DDRII+ SRAMs are manufactured using Cypress's 90nm RAM9 process technology.

"Being first to market with QDRII+ products demonstrates Cypress's continued commitment to maintaining a leadership role in the worldwide SRAM market," said Mathew Arcoleo, product marketing director in Cypress's Memory and Imaging Division. "These devices give manufacturers the density and performance necessary to expand network capabilities and services."

The 72Mbit QDRII+/DDRII+ products are already sampling, with production starting in the second half of 2006. Pricing will be announced later.
