Motorola Inc’s Semiconductor Products Sector has delivered its first chips to use copper interconnect technology in the shape of a new static RAM device built using 0.15 micron process technology. The device is an 8 Mbit Late Write device with 60m transistors, which Motorola has already cranked up to a performance of 333MHz. The SRAM also uses between 50% and 70% less power than previous level 2 SRAMs, says Motorola. It will use the technology as a core for derivative products, such as 8 Mbit dual data rate SRAMs and higher density 16 Mbit SRAMs. Motorola is developing high performance CMOS process technology that supports multiple device types, including microprocessors, memory chips and digital signal processors, and called the SRAM release a key milestone in its progress. Samples of the SRAM, in 300MHz and 333MHz versions, are available now, with pre-production versions in the fourth quarter, and volume in the first quarter of next year.
