To maintain or increase their strength on the market, manufacturers of high density consumer and portable devices must regularly offer more features to their end customers - while maintaining competitive pricing and performances. For this reason, finding the best compromise between low power and cost reduction is a significant challenge for SoC designers.
Dolphin Integration provides customers with new capabilities for designing differentiated circuits at 85 nm LP with the introduction of a Single Port RAM which stars the proprietary architecture RHEA and is available in two different product options:
The High Density option (RHEA-HD), designed with the power aware RHEA architecture and embedding the pushed-rule bit-cell from foundries, is the solution for low dynamic power consumption together with high density.
The Retention Ready (RHEA-RR) option meets the most demanding power budgets thanks to its smart low power design and its retention mode.
Thanks to the combined benefits of the new TSMC 85 nm bit-cell and of the innovative RHEA architecture, common Users have the opportunity to decrease leakage by more than 40% and to increase the density by up to 10% compared with traditional memory compilers. For even further power reduction, Low Voltage and Dual Voltage (DV) variants of this architecture are also available.
