Cypress Semiconductor unveiled a family of five high-performance More Battery Life (MoBL) dual-port RAMs for mobile phone and PDA applications. The devices enable high-speed interprocessor communication in next-generation phones that use multiple processors to handle video, games, e-mail, or music.
The MoBL dual ports provide the industry's lowest operating and standby current—80% lower than previous-generation dual-ports, claims the company. At 1.8V, operating current is 15mA (typ.), while standby current measures 2µA (typ.).
