Hi one,

I think you have a SRAM on your PIC, not an SDRAM! SDRAM's are very
complicated to talk to. They are used for high memory amount >1MB and
are not compatible to a PIC.
It's possible to use a serial RAM on your PIC, but it is very slow. Each
access has to be serialized (by software) and that takes time. Additionally
such serial devices are small. Manufacturer of such devices are:
Philips: (PCF8570)
Dallas/Maxim: (DS1200)
ST: (M41T256Y)
Another possibility is to use a CPLD that does the serial/parallel conversion
and the RAM-access.

Bye

Hi one,

To make your serial to parallel converter you can use a CPLD from
different manufacturers. One possibility is Altera, a device could be the
EPM3032 or the EPM3064. The design tools (schematic entry or AHDL)
can be downloaded from their website for free.
I think you will also find an example with google how to make such a
converter.

Bye

Mostly CPLD's have much IO-Pins. But they can be obtained in small
packages (TQFP). I don't know a CPLD with 28 pins. Does anybody
know one?

Bye
