JSC introduces Industry's Fastest Serial interface OctaRAM combining with MXIC OctaFlash

SEOUL, South Korea, Aug. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- OctaRAM is an ideal solution for automotive cluster, telematics, industrial application and high-performance consumer products such as SSD controller, display timing controller.

Professional low power memory solution Fabless company JSC, made known sampling of a new high-speed, self-refresh OctaRAM based on JSC's low-pin-count interface, which announced the industry's fastest Octa serial interface RAM, the OctaRAM JSC64SS product family.

OctaRAM provides designers with the next generation performance level of x8 I/O serial interface products with an operating frequency of up to 200MHz and transmission speeds of up to 400MB/s. This world class leading performance aids designers to meet the ever increasing demands of In-vehicle entertainment, automotive cluster, and IoT.

By combining JSC's OctaRAM and MXIC's OctaFlash components on the shared bus, chipset providers can reduce controller pincount, accommodate smaller packages, simplify PCB designs, and potentially replace or reduce DRAM, resulting in significant cost savings while dramatically improving performance.

With the rapid development of "Internet of Things", the content of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) used in automobiles is increasing steadily. According to a survey conducted by Gartner, automotive semiconductor market will show strong growth over the period from 2016 (32.3 billion dollars) to 2020 (42.4 billion dollars), with a compound annual growth rate of up to 7.1%, surpassing the 3.7% growth rate in the overall semiconductor market.

JSC has very strong growth within its automotive business in the last few years and from the design win being achieved, continued strong growth in the coming years may be expected. Also, many of the leading automotive electronics suppliers are now in full mass production utilizing JSC's SLC NAND MCP products. The newly-released OctaRAM is the next-generation series of Pseudo SRAM memory based on the x8 I/O Serial interface. OctaRAM uses the same footprint and interface as OctaFlash, thereby minimizing design costs as compared with other products on the market which adopt a completely new interface.

Meeting the ever-increasing demand for vehicle telematics bandwidth, OctaRAM provides the fastest read access operation frequency in the industry, 200MHz, and supports DTR (Double Transfer Rate) configurations by allowing a maximum transfer rate of 400MB/s.

The OctaRAM product line offers both 1.8V and 3.0V options, covering 32Mb, 64Mb, 128Mb densities. OctaRAM samples are currently available.
