Grenoble, France – June 15, 2012. Dolphin Integration announces that the new memory architecture RHEA has now passed the Level 1 criteria of TSMC’s stringent IP9000 qualification program.
“We are happy to announce that RHEA, the latest innovation of Dolphin’s sRAM family is now available free of charge, for all TSMC 85 nm Ultra Low Power process Users”, said Elsa BERNARD-MOULIN, Dolphin Integration Marketing Manager for Libraries.
The Single Port RAM compiler RHEA is specially suited for consumer applications such as flash controllers and bridge interfaces. Indeed it provides the highest density with the smallest power consumption, leaving far behind the competing sRAM implementations available at 90 nm LP.
Thanks to the combined benefits of TSMC’s bit-cell with Dolphin’s smart sRAM architecture, the lucky users of the TSMC 85 nm Ultra Low Power process can enjoy up to 15% area savings on their memory cuts, and up to 40% leakage reduction and up to 50% dynamic power reduction compared to existing 90 nm LP memory generators.
As an example, one SpRAM RHEA memory cut of 2kx32 achieves a power consumption as low as 17.5 uA/MHz for an area of 0.083 mm2!
For even further power reduction, low voltage and dual voltage variants of the RHEA compiler also are available to ensure safe operation down to 1.0 V ± 10%.
