Colorado springs, Colorado – Cobham Semiconductor Solutions announces QML V certification of their non-volatile products using Magnetoresistive Random-Access Memory (MRAM) intellectual property from Everspin Technologies, Inc.
The MRAM-based product offering includes a 64Mbit device,
UT8MR8M8, offered in a 40-lead quad flatpack, and a 16Mbit device,
UT8MR2M8, available in a 40-lead flatpack. Both are in
production and have been designed into various future
"Customers needed dense, low power, qualified non-volatile
memory solutions with guaranteed total ionizing dose and single
event hardness," said Anthony Jordan, Cobham Semiconductor
Solutions Vice-President Product Marketing and Applications
Engineering. "Using an IP license from Everspin, Cobham has
taken commercial MRAM technology and enhanced the IP for
specialized aerospace and defense applications. We were able
to satisfy these requirements using commercial IP and proprietary
design techniques and have accessed new markets."
"We are very pleased to be Cobham's partner in bringing MRAM
technology to the level required to achieve QML V," said Phill
LoPresti, President and CEO of Everspin Technologies. "MRAM has
become the preferred solution in demanding applications such as
storage, industrial, automotive and now, with Cobham's achievement,
MRAM technology provides a combination of fast access time,
non-volatility, data retention and endurance. MRAM technology
operates as an SRAM with non-volatile attributes. Cobham's HiRel
MRAM solutions are used with microprocessors, DSP engines, storage
systems, instruments, and reconfigurable FPGAs.
The 3V MRAMs have guaranteed operation from -40oC to
+105oC, 100 krad(Si) to 1 Mrad and are SEL immune to
>100 MeV-cm2. As a replacement for 3.3V SRAMs,
the MRAMs are 8-bit parallel I/O solutions with data retention
after each write of 20 years and virtually infinite read/write
endurance. They are ideal for working memory applications that
require high rates of data overwrites.
"Cobham Semiconductor Solutions is committed as a long-term
supplier of memory products for harsh environments. We now offer
over 30 products in our Non-Volatile and Volatile Memory Family,"
stated Jordan. "We plan to continue leveraging Everspin IP in
future product development."
The radiation-hardened UT8MR2M8 (SMD5962-12227) and the UT8MR8M8
(SMD 5962-13207) are QML Q, Q+ and V qualified and available to
Standard Microcircuit Drawings. Please call for pricing.
