Yes, at least SST have parts that fit.

Depending on if you need LPC or FWH you can get the SST49LF160C
or SST49LF016C parts. One of them is dual mode (both LPC and FWH) and
the other does only one mode, but I forget which is which.
Unfortunately the data sheets are not very clear on this. :\

Which part is your system using at the moment? That will indicate if
you need LPC or FWH.

That should work beautifully!
