With many buyers finding 1M memory chips at current prices quite adequate for their needs, and leaving 4Ms on the shelf, Fujitsu Ltd is hoping to spook the market with an announcement that it is now sampling its next generation 16M-bit parts to US customers. The MB8116-100, -101 and -400 dynamics are available with 60nS, 70nS and 80nS access times. The parts are in 0.5 micron CMOS and cell design features a three-dimensional stacked capacitor for high cell capacitance and high immunity to soft errors. The parts are being made on Fujitsu’s Mie small run facility and will shortly be transferred to the Iwate facility for high volume production. They are available in 16M by 1 and 4M by 4 fast page organisations as well as 16M by 1 nibble mode. They use a 5V external power supply and have a 4K refresh cycle for lower power consumption. Future organisations will include 1M by 16, 2M by 8 and parity versions 2M by 9 and 1M by 18. They are $295 for 1,000-up and volume is set for first quarter 1992.
