Cypress Semiconductor Corporation Integrates Ramtron International Corp.'s F-RAM Offerings to Create Write Nonvolatile Memory Portfolio
Dec 20 12
Cypress Semiconductor Corporation announced that it has integrated Ramtron International Corp.’s ferroelectric random access memory (F-RAM) products into its portfolio, offering the market’s widest range of densities for fast-write nonvolatile memories. F-RAM is the power nonvolatile memory, complementing Cypress’s nonvolatile static random access memories (nvSRAMs), which are the world’s fastest. This new combination serves a broad range of applications that require data to be retained when power is lost. Combined, over a billion units of Cypress nvSRAM and Ramtron F-RAM products have been shipped worldwide. The merger between Cypress and Ramtron was officially completed on November 20, 2012. Cypress is maintaining Ramtron part numbers, which represent the market’s widest range of F-RAM densities, to help support existing F-RAM customers. There will be no supply disruption for more than 95% of production parts, including all popular serial F-RAM memories and processor companions. Along with popular serial and parallel interface memories, the Cypress nonvolatile memory portfolio also includes wireless memories commonly used in RFID tags and integrated products that combine nonvolatile memory with a real-time clock in one package.
