We determined to offer new and better SRAMs: QDR, micropower, nvSRAM, specialty FIFO,… for our customers when our competitors were making excuses and looking for the exit to the gym.
It has taken us years, but that doesn’t make the view from the top any less rewarding. Take a minute (okay… a few hours) and tour our SRAM site and see the array of cool products we’ve built. Maybe you can use one and give me a reason to come for a visit.
