The 56364 has a DRAM controller on chip as well as SRAM support (as|
does most of the 56300 family). However, keep in mind the 56364 only
has an 8-bit external data bus so some packing/unpacking may be
required for your application. Also note that the most internal PRAM
you can have is 1.25k. This may be plenty for your application but of
the 5636x family it's by far the smallest...
