Semico Releases 4Q04 SRAM Study

Phoenix, Arizona February 10, 2005 - Semico Research Corp’s latest 4Q04 SRAM report shows a record year in terms of unit shipments.

The aggregate ASP dropped in excess of 50% since 2000 when it was $5.31 and in 2004 it was a mere $2.45. The primary reason is that Pseudo SRAM (PSRAM) has made a big dent in the SRAM market.
