Camas, WA--December 17, 1996--Sharp Electronics Corp. (Camas, WA) announced availability of the LHMD79XX and LHMD59XX mask read only memories (MROMs). These new MROMs are among the first designed especially for 32-bit embedded systems.
The new MROMs feature 1 Mbit depth by 32-bits, or 2 Mbit depth for use in 16-bit systems. Sharp expects the 32-bit configuration to be a popular choice in many embedded system applications where it will reduce overall parts count, eliminate some system overhead, and improve system performance.
Other features of the LHMD79XX and LHMD59XX include 3.3V operation that saves power and reduces heat, 100 ns access speed, and even faster 30 ns page mode access for measureably improved operating speeds. The LHMD79XX is currently sampling in a 70-pin SSOP.
Samples are available now in 70-pin SSOP with production quantities shipping in the second quarter of 1997. There is a two-thousand-piece minimum order in US. Delivery is five weeks or less from receipt of software.
