SAN JOSE, Calif., March 29, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (Nasdaq:ISSI), a leader in advanced memory solutions, today introduced a family of 512Mb DDR SDRAMs with speeds up to 200Mhz, targeted for automotive, communications, and industrial applications. The introduction of this product family now, using advanced technology, enables ISSI to provide the long term product support required by these targeted applications.

These devices have an operating voltage of 2.5V, and are available in 64Mx8, 32Mx16, and 16Mx32 configurations. Temperature ranges available are 0 to 70C, -40 to 85C, and -40 to 105C. The 64Mx8 (IS43R86400D) and 32Mx16 (IS43R16320D) are available in both a 66-pin TSOP-II and in 60-ball BGA packages. A 16Mx32 (IS43R32160D) will be available in a 144-ball BGA package.

512Mb DDR SDRAMs are used in a variety of applications including automotive telematics, medical imaging and analysis, switches and routers, set-top boxes, and modems. ISSI is making this product available now.

"512Mb DDR SDRAMs have been widely adopted in communication applications such as enterprise switches, core and edge routers, PON, DSLAMs, and base stations. Long-term product support, oftentimes up to 10 years or beyond, is required for those applications. Additionally, since some of those products are in outdoor environments, industrial temperature is also a requirement," said Pat Lasserre, ISSI director of strategic marketing.

"The 512Mb DDR offers a new dimension to our long-term support for our automotive customers that use processors with this interface. Our camera, navigation and infotainment automotive customers appreciate that this product is available from ISSI in leaded BGA and with an operating range up to 105C," added Lyn Zastrow, ISSI vice president of the Automotive Business Unit.

In addition to the 512Mb DDR SDRAM product family, ISSI offers SDR, DDR, mobile SDR/DDR, and DDR2 SDRAM product families in a variety of densities, organizations, and temperature ranges as well as a complete line of SRAMs targeted for automotive, networking, telecom, industrial and consumer applications.
