Cypress Expands Industry-Leading Nonvolatile RAM Portfolio With New 16 Mb Parallel nvSRAM Family

New nvSRAM Family Includes Industry's Fastest High-Density NVRAM and World's First NVRAM to Support Direct Connections to NAND Bus Controllers

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today introduced a family of 16 Mb nonvolatile Static Random Access Memories (nvSRAMs), including devices with asynchronous parallel and asynchronous Open NAND Flash Interface (ONFI) Standard 1.0 interfaces. The 16 Mb nvSRAM family extends Cypress's portfolio to address mission-critical applications such as high-end programmable logic controllers (PLCs), high-speed data/error loggers in storage equipment, networking equipment, avionics systems, and electronic gaming machines.

The 16 Mb nvSRAMs are the fastest high-density asynchronous nonvolatile RAMs on the market, with access times as low as 25 ns. Cypress offers the new devices with an optional integrated Real-Time Clock (RTC), which enables time-stamping of critical data to be logged. Cypress nvSRAMs feature infinite read, write and recall cycles, with 20-year data retention at 85˚C and 150 years at 65˚C. Cypress nvSRAM is an ideal solution for applications requiring continuous high-speed reading and writing of data and absolute nonvolatile data security. More information about Cypress's portfolio of nvSRAM products is available at

"Mission-critical systems require high-performance memories that can capture data instantly and reliably on power loss," said Rainer Hoehler, Senior Director of the Nonvolatile Products Business Unit at Cypress. "Cypress's new 16 Mb nvSRAMs deliver absolute data security with the industry's fastest high-density NVRAM. The ONFI 1.0 interface option also allows customers using NAND controllers to leverage the unmatched performance of our nvSRAMs."

The 16 Mb nvSRAM family is sampling today, with production expected in the third quarter of 2014. The ONFI 1.0 devices operate on a 3V power supply, 1.8V IO supply, in data bus widths of 8 bits and 16 bits, and are available in a 165-ball FBGA package. The asynchronous parallel devices are offered with and without an RTC, in data bus widths of 8 bits, 16 bits and 32 bits, and at power supply levels of 3V, 5V, and 3V with 1.8V I/O. They are available in 44-pin TSOPII, 48-pin TSOPI, 54-pin TSOPII, and 165-ball FBGA packages. Learn more about the 16 Mb nvSRAM family at

About Cypress nvSRAMs
Cypress's nvSRAMs use charge stored on an external capacitor instead of a battery, making the devices compatible with standard PCB assembly processes. Cypress's nvSRAMs are RoHS-compliant and directly replace SRAM, battery-backed SRAM (BBSRAM) and EEPROM devices, offering fast nonvolatile data storage. Data transfers from the SRAM to the device's nonvolatile elements take place automatically at power down. On power up, data is restored to the SRAM from the nonvolatile memory. Cypress nvSRAMs offer high-speed data transfer while ensuring data integrity in case of power outages without the need for a battery. Target applications include PLC, storage, networking, avionic, and gaming applications as well as metering, industrial, automotive and RAID applications.

There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.
