Fabless companies targeting these applications have huge constraints both in terms of power consumption and area. Thanks to its dual voltage capability and its various operating modes, the power consumption of the Rhea SpRAM is drastically reduced and enables a significant extension of battery life for such power sensitive applications. The Rhea SpRAM not only reaches attractive low power consumption figures, but its smart architecture for the array periphery also offers the highest density to reduce silicon costs.
For a complete sub-system optimisation of power consumption, the Rhea SpRAM can be combined with Dolphin Integration's Typhoon 80251, a 16-bit MCU offering the best trade-off between processing power and low power consumption, and the R-Stratus-LP cache controller, specifically targeting low power optimisation of Flash memories.
