This article reads like marketing material and is in need of fixing. Too many fuzzy statements like "speed comparable to SRAM (at multi-megabit densities)". An unsupported claim like this shouldn't be presented as fact. JSB73 (talk) 01:52, 8 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Considering the fact that there are reports the Nintendo Revolution will be using this technology and that Gamecube does use it, I would suggest keeping the page, for reference. I editted a link to properly link the Nintendo Revolution article. If someone can find the source from IGN about the RAM's use, please cite it. I cannot as I am using a school computer with protections running on it. ~ Ritz


You guys need to understand something about the semicondutor foundry industry. Advertising is worthless -- nearly all sales are conducted through direct-marketing, foundry-partnership, or customer-led inquiry. No design team I know of bases a design decision purely on web-published specifications. Just about everything requires an NDA, so there's really no push for an IP-company to describe in (accurate) detail, the availability and technical specifications.

That's why TSMC, UMC don't even bother with listing barely *half* of their semiconductor services. YOu can't even tell if they test/package/bin parts for you (they don't), if they do mask-set generation (TSMC does), or offer design consulting services (big gray-area for both.) If you read their webpage today, compared it with Fujitsu, Sony, Toshiba, NEC, IBM, etc., you'd think TSMC is dead-last in the merchant foundry business, and you'd be dead wrong.

Mosys 1T-SRAM is real, it's offered at a number of foundries. The list on Mosys's site isn't updated regularly, for the reasons I said earlier. Foundries pick a fab first, then figure out what sort of IP is available at that fab -- they do that by contacting the fab (the fab acts as a single-point-of-contact for most IP-vendors.) There are some exceptions, but by and large, that's the way this industry works.


This stuff is 1T-DRAM. The article should be removed since it's misleading. It is not possible to create 1T-SRAM.
