Cypress to Address Memory Solutions for Mobile Applications at Denali MemCon 2004 Tokyo
TOKYO, Japan, September 3, 2004 - Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) today announced that it will highlight memory solutions for mobile applications in a presentation at the MemCon 2004 Tokyo Conference, to be held at the Tokyo Conference center on September 8 and 9, 2004. Cypress will present its broad portfolio of mobile memory devices, along with an overview of market demand and archtechture migration trends. The presentation will be held at 3:45 p.m. on September 9.
Mobile phone penetration is rising all over the world as users are demanding more services and features on their mobile phones and service providers are rolling out an increasing set of new features. These trends have transformed cellular handsets from voice-only devices to voice and data devices and have subsequently impacted the hardware that goes into these phone designs. Cell phone memories, for example, have changed with higher density, lower power and higher throughput devices coming into fore. At the same time, cellular handset makers are under pressure to reduce the size of their phones, forcing memory vendors to look toward new architectures. The volatile memory inside phones has evolved from simple asynchronous SRAM memories to asynchronous PSRAMs to synchronous high-throughput PSRAMs.
Cypress's presentation will focus on various mobile solutions that are available to meet mobile applications demand. One such example is CellularRAMTM, a second-generation PSRAM device targeting feature-rich, next-generation phones. This common memory interface is being co-developed by Cypress, Micron, Infineon and Renesas. Cypress's MoBL (MOre Battery Life) dual-port device is another solution for mobile applications that uses multiple processors. Dual-port memories offer a simple and flexible SRAM-like interface for processors. Independent block design and shortened debugging cycles help reduce time-to-market and provide design flexibilities that enable cost reduction.
At its tradeshow booth, Cypress's memory experts will help engineers find the best solution from a wide selection of mobile memories. Design engineers can also pick up a copy of "SER-History, Trends, and Challenges," a reference book recently published by Cypress that addresses how to manage soft error rates in memory designs.
