ASP is leveraging Avalanche’s Persistent-SRAM products to power the next wave of satellites
Fremont, CA, May 30th, 2023 – Avalanche Technology, the leader in next generation MRAM technology, announced today that it is providing its disruptive Space Grade Persistent SRAM (P-SRAM) products for satellite power applications developed by Advanced Space Power Equipment GmbH (ASP). ASP has designed in a 16Mb device from Avalanche’s Gen 2 Space Grade P-SRAM family into its next generation Power Conditioning & Distribution Unit (PCDU) within their satellite platform product line.
ASP chose Avalanche’s highly reliable P-SRAM for its next wave of power supply designs due to its high-reliability, resilience, density, low latency and practically unlimited write cycle endurance. Satellite systems require extreme environmental resilience and fault tolerant high reliability, all while there is continued pressure to reduce size, weight, and power. ASP is known for power supply innovation across its diverse product families including satellite payload and platform, launchers, high voltage power supplies and ground systems.
“ASP has been powering satellites since 2003 with hundreds in orbit demonstrating our core strengths of quality, reliability and outstanding performance”, said Dr. Reiner Strobel, CEO of ASP. “Avalanche’s disruptive MRAM solutions are providing the right combination of features to allow our teams to reduce SWaP (size, weight and power) for our PCDU, known for its sophisticated modularized architecture and form factor.”
“Avalanche’s Gen 2 Space Grade P-SRAM family, with its space heritage, is the workhorse of embedded design for the aerospace and defense industry, providing a resilient, high reliability, and compact solution for the rapidly evolving space market,” said Danny Sabour, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Avalanche Technology. “We are delighted to be working with a satellite power supply leader such as ASP.”
Avalanche Gen 2 Persistent SRAM
The second generation Parallel x16 Space Grade series has been in production since 2019, has achieved flight heritage and is offered in 16Mb and 64Mb density options. With asynchronous SRAM compatible 45ns/45ns read/write timings, data is always non-volatile with 1016 write cycle endurance and 10-year retention at 125°C. Both density options are available in a small footprint 48-Ball FBGA (10mm x 10mm) package, which is compatible with similar low-power volatile and non-volatile products. The devices are offered in extended (-40°C to 125°C) operating temperature range and are subject to JEDEC qualification and screening with a 48-hour burn-in prior to shipment. Additional options for packaging, qualification and screening are available through industry partner, Micross.
