The Renesas asynchronous SRAMs are fabricated using high-performance, high-reliability CMOS technology. This technology, combined with innovative circuit design techniques, provides a cost-effective solution for high-speed async SRAM memory needs. Fully static asynchronous circuitry is used, requiring no clocks or refresh for operation. Renesas offers asynchronous SRAM in RoHS 6/6-compliant (Green) packaging using industry-standard package options.
Asynchronous SRAM (aka Asynchronous Static Random Access Memory) is a type of memory that stores data using a static method, in which the data remains constant as long as electric power is supplied to the device. This is different than DRAM (dynamic RAM), which constantly needs to refresh the data stored in the memory.
Because Async SRAM stores data statically, it is faster and requires less power than DRAM. On the other hand, SRAM is built using a more complex circuit topology, and is, therefore, less dense and more expensive to manufacture than DRAM. As a result, DRAM is most often used as the main memory for personal computers, while Asynchronous SRAM is commonly used in smaller memory applications, such as CPU cache memory, hard drive buffers, networking equipment, consumer electronics, and appliances. Synchronous SRAMs use clocks for reading and writing, while asynchronous SRAMs are usually controlled by asynchronous signals.
