There are pther parts out there.

If you read the article ALL of those parameters are can be
tested and defined, before building the whole core plane.

Actually when doing that you'd also vary the slice level or
the power supply levels to see where the edges are.

FYI: I checks my notes and a 64x64 array needs 65
drivers and something like 192 diodes to drive the select lines.
