Fujitsu has introduced its latest application specific memory (ASM) - a second generation 16Mb RAM.

The company blurb says it has lower power requirements than previous generations, drawing as little as 70 microamps of current, and has been designed for next generation mobile phone applications.

The poetically-named MB82D01-171A is based on Fujitsu's Fast-Cycle RAM (FCRAM) architecture that was originally introduced at 1998 VLSI symposium.

The new ASMs are designed to complement the Flash memory products already available for the mobile communications market, including the next generation and W-CDMA cellular phones and PDAs

Fujitsu's European spokesman, Manfred Mettendorff, said that the new ASMs would be available both as discrete devices and as multi-chip packages integrated with Flash.

Samples will be available in February 2001 with prices starting at $30 per unit. ®
