Abstract: A 2KX8 5V-only dynamic RAM, developed primarily for compatibility with present and future generation microprocessor systems will be described. Edge-activated design techniques have been used to maximize ease-of-use, while maintaining internal efficiency of a dynamic RAM. In addition to single-supply operation, the chip incorporates a built-in refresh counter for single-pin refresh cycles, a powerdown auto-refresh mode, automatic prccharge for minimum cycle time, and an independent OE pin to allow multiplexing…
