nvSRAMs Eclipse Battery-backed Memory

Last Updated: 
Nov 13, 2008

Battery-backed Static RAMs have been an industry standard solution for protecting data from power interruption for decades, but they have always had intrinsic flaws related to battery reliability, additional manufacturing steps, and high total costs of ownership. More recently, environmental concerns for the materials used in batteries have pushed the industry towards seriously considering viable alternatives. nvSRAMs, built using a robust SONOS (Silicon-Oxide-Nitride-Oxide-Silicon) process and a high-performance nvSRAM architecture, provide the functionality of traditional battery-backed solution while providing higher reliability, efficient manufacturing, and true RoHS compliance while eliminating batteries altogether. This paper will describe nvSRAM products and how they replace traditional battery-backed solutions for memory and real-time-clock applications.
