I know this question is off topic and I appologize beforehand. This is an issue that many good hardware people here are facing I'm guessing. Please feel free to flame me if I've overstepped boundaries.
I've been aaaociated with a company and done many designs for them over the years (since the 1990's). over the years I have stanbdardized the use of many components to re-use what works and has been proven and to take advantage of economies-of-scale. However, the 5V SRAM I've designed into many products is dissppearing. Alternatives from companies like Renesas do not appear to be readily available from distribution.
I have decided that I have been beating a dead hiorse rtrying to find an 8Mb 5V LP X16 SRAM and I should use a newer 3.3V part with level translators.
A quick search a few weeks ago turned up only a few translators - single channel ones on so8 for instandce. Has anyone come acrosss a jellybeen 5V to 3.3V translator line that comes in octal or 16 channel densities?
