Pseudo-SRAM offer a smaller and lower power alternative to SDRAM in portable and battery-powered equipment. Pseudo-SRAM devices also minimise component count by eliminating the need for DRAM interface circuitry. In addition, because pseudo-SRAM does not use a pipeline architecture operating current is about 10mA lower than low-power SDRAM alternatives under the same data transfer conditions.

As well as reducing power consumption, pseudo-SRAM also allows component count to be reduced because it requires none of the interface circuitry used in DRAM-based designs.

Pseudo-SRAM offers further space reductions through an automatic refresh feature that eliminates the need for external refresh circuitry, while an address latch ensures no data loss during refresh.

Pseudo-SRAM is a growing alternative to SDRAM. Nowadays Pseudo-SRAMs are available in memory size more than 256MB from semiconductor memory companies such as Samsung, Toshiba, ISSI, etc.
