Simtek offers lead-free nvSRAM packaging.

Simtek Corporation (BULLETIN BOARD: SRAM), a developer of next-generation nonvolatile memory products, announced recently its lead-free package offerings. Simtek now supplies lead-free packages for its entire family of nonvolatile Static RAM (nvSRAM) products, complying with the growing worldwide need for an environment-friendly alternative to lead-based packages.

"Simtek can support system manufacturers with a complete family of lead-free epoxy packages," said Simtek's Director of Quality Assurance, Brian Stephens. "This requirement is growing rapidly in Japan and Europe, and we expect demand to spread world-wide over the next couple of years."

Simtek currently offers surface-mount and through-hole lead-free packages for its 4 Kbit through 256 Kbit nvSRAM products. The Company is also prepared to offer lead-free packages for its new 1 Mbit product family including traditional 32 pin packages and the new, smaller 48 pin surface mount package that supports additional, innovative functionality designed into the 1 Mbit architecture.
