Simtek Launches New Plastic Packaged nvSRAM with Extended Temperature Range of -55°C to +125°C
Expands Product Platform to Capitalize on Fast Growing Automotive, Industrial and Military Markets
Colorado Springs, CO - July 16, 2007 - Simtek Corporation (NASDAQ: SMTK), the
inventor, pioneer, and world's leading supplier of nonvolatile static random access
memory (nvSRAM) integrated circuits, today introduced a new "extended temp"
nvSRAM product in a low-cost plastic package to support the needs of its growing
customer base in the industrial, automotive and military markets. The STK14C88-
NF35U is a 256K bit (32K x 8) nvSRAM IC packaged in a plastic 32-pin surface mount
package. It is available for initial orders in July.
"Qualifying our 256K design over temperature in a plastic package dramatically reduces
our price point, providing a cost-effective alternative for a number of our customers who demand extended temperature ranges, but do not need expensive ceramic packaging,"
said Grant Hulse, Simtek's Vice President of Marketing. "Offering both plastic and
ceramic versions of this product will allow our customers to select the best device for
each particular application, ultimately helping them drive greater volumes and market
acceptance," Hulse concluded.
Simtek STK14C88-NF35U Features:
o 256K nvSRAM
o Fast access time of 35 nanoseconds
o Operating temperature range of -55°C to +125°C
o 32-pin Plastic SOIC package
o Superior endurance of 100,000 read-write cycles
o Retention of stored data of 10 years at +125°C
Some applications that will benefit from this new offering include outdoor ruggedized
data logging (railroad, oilfield, and outdoor factory equipment), traffic control &
monitoring, industrial and military portable equipment, smart ordinance and automobiles. 10,000-unit pricing for the STK14C88-NF35U is $19.50US, with production expected to ramp in Q4, 2007.
Simtek will continue to offer their nvSRAM product families in high-temp ceramic
packages. The 256K nvSRAM is also available in the 32-pin ceramic DIP and the 32-pin
ceramic LCC packages over this same extended temperature range.
