August 23, 2010 -- There is increased demand for SRAMs with faster speed, better performance, lower currents, and better signal integrity for next-generation networking applications. To keep up with this demand, the 65-nm technology QDR families of devices have been introduced which offer significant advantages over 90-nm technology-based QDR devices. This article describes in detail the advantages of the 65-nm technology QDR family devices over their 90-nm technology equivalent and provides guidelines for simplifying the migration from 90-nm to 65-nm technology.
