The solution, says the company, delivers validated interoperability between the its IoT RAM and Synopsys’ DesignWare Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI) IP. The Synopsys DesignWare IP offers high transfer rate and low latency in serial memories for IoT and mobile applications.
Future collaborations will extend the solution to support even lower power, low pin count solutions such as 1.2V I/O IoT RAM (OPI and HPI), as well as AIOT RAM (15 pins – 2.1GB/s). AIoT RAM supports the low pin count of IoT RAM with higher performance (~5x bandwidth) and lower active power, targeting Edge AI applications.
The company’s IoT RAM builds on a set of PSRAM features that offer low signal pin count, low power and high transfer rate options to meet the demanding power and form factor constraints of IoT and mobile applications. Synopsys’ DesignWare SSI IP will enable designers and developers to make the most out of the potential of AP Memory IoT RAM product line which is scalable from the QSPI (6~7 pins – 72MB/s~166MB/s), to the well-known OPI (11 pins – 500MB/s) and up to the most advanced HPI (20pins – 1GB/s) PSRAMs.
“AP Memory is delighted to collaborate with Synopsys,” says Ivan Hong, Vice President and General Manager of IoT Business Unit of AP Memory. “Together, both companies will accelerate development of IoT endpoints and deliver optimal extended memory solution to fulfill the ultimate endpoint experiences.”
