SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 3, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (Nasdaq:ISSI), a leader in advanced memory solutions, today announced it has begun sampling production units of its new 1Gigabit (1Gbit) and 2 Gigabit (2Gbit) DDR3 devices, the first of ISSI's family of DDR3 SDRAMs. The 1Gbit DDR3 device is the IS43TR16640A, which operates at 1.5V, is organized as 64Mx16 and packaged in a 96-ball BGA. The 2Gbit DDR3 device is the IS43TR16128A, which operates at 1.5V, is organized as 128Mx16 and packaged in a 96-ball BGA. This initial offering of the DDR3 SDRAM product family adds to ISSI's extensive selection of DRAMs. By using advanced technology, ISSI is able to provide the long lifecycle product support as required by applications in automotive, communications, industrial, medical and mil-aerospace.
The new devices are available with clock speeds up to 933MHz (DDR3-1866). In addition to these x16 devices, ISSI also plans to offer devices with x8 data-width organization in a 1Gbit (IS43TR81280A) and 2Gbit (IS43TR82560A) configuration. A low voltage option of 1.35V (DDR3L) will follow, where the IS43TR16640AL or IS43TR81280AL will be the 1Gbit device and the IS43TR16128AL or IS43TR82560AL the 2Gbit. The DDR3 and DDR3L products will be available in commercial, industrial, and automotive temperature grades.
"Our automotive customers are excited about our newest family of DDR3 products, the latest generation of DRAMs which further exemplify our long-term commitment to their product roadmaps. Customers have begun to qualify the DDR3 devices in multimedia, navigation and clusters, where new features and high-speed processors in these systems are driving adoption of this memory technology," said Lyn Zastrow, vice president of the Automotive Business Unit."The expansion of broadband infrastructure in data centers and customer-premise equipment are driving system designers to incorporate DDR3 DRAMs into their products. These applications also have long-life requirements, so ISSI's commitment to long-term support of the 1Gbit and 2Gbit DDR3 products will be important for our customers in the communications and networking markets," said Ron Kalakuntla, vice president of marketing. Key applications in the communications market segment include access and aggregation nodes, routers and switches, network storage, optical transport and base stations.
