Acal BFi supports fast synchronous SRAM as Samsung exits
Acal BFi has announced the availability of alternatives to fast synchronous SRAMs made obsolete by the planned withdrawal of supplier Samsung from the market.
“Despite continued demand from customers, the sources of supply for fast synchronous SRAM have been shrinking, with Samsung following Toshiba, Micron and IBM in withdrawing from this sector,” said Philippe Gruson, president of Acal Technology’s electronics division.
As the number of architectures and part numbers has increased, so the production volume for each individual device has diminished to the point where manufacturers decide not the support the products.
Acal BFi sells fast synchronous SRAM from manufacturer GSI Technology. It said it will cross-reference and sample a fit, form and function replacement for virtually any existing high-speed SRAM.
GSI focuses its entire manufacturing output on high-speed SRAM.
