Simtek Corp. announced that they now offer lead-free packaging for their entire family of non-volatile static RAM (nvSRAM) products, complying with the growing worldwide need for an environment-friendly alternative to lead-based packages.

"Simtek can support system manufacturers with a complete family of lead-free epoxy packages," said Brian Stephens, company director of quality assurance. "This requirement is growing rapidly in Japan and Europe, and we expect demand to spread worldwide over the next couple of years."

Simtek currently offers surface-mount and through-hole lead-free packages for its 4Kb through 256Kb nvSRAM products. The company is also prepared to offer lead-free packages for its latest 1Mb product family including traditional 32-pin packages and the new, smaller 48-pin surface-mount package that supports additional, innovative functionality designed into the 1Mb architecture.
