RAiTEK is leveraging Avalanche’s Persistent-SRAM products to power their next generation satellite monitoring and data storage products
Fremont, CA, September 11th, 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-based storage systems developed by RAiTEK LTD. Inc. (RAiTEK). RAiTEK has designed in a 16Mb device from Avalanche’s Gen 2 Space Grade family to monitor data stream status and a 1Gb Gen 3 Space Grade to support large configuration images for the onboard FPGA used in the drives, as part of their growing portfolio of data storage and processing solutions for the space industry.
RAiTEK chose Avalanche’s Space Grade P-SRAM products for its next wave of satellite-targeted data storage products because of its ability to offer maximum scalability and mission adaptability, critical to growing satellite network providers looking for common hardware platforms. Applying RAiTEK’s vast industry experience to a trade study of potential memory solutions, radiation resilience, high-reliability, high-density and nearly unlimited write cycle endurance translated to the optimal solution for their platform requirements.
“RAiTEK has been diligently responding to the needs of the Asian space community by providing a combination of products and services to meet the rapidly evolving set of requirements,” said Tom Hsiao, CEO of RAiTEK. “Avalanche’s disruptive MRAM solutions, particularly when mated with advanced processing hardware, is allowing us to support our customers with a highly scalable, SWaP-optimized platform capable of providing responsive, enduring mission adaptability.”
“Avalanche’s Space Grade P-SRAM family has been recognized by the space community as the silver bullet for modernized satellite architectures, enabling the hardware simplicity of terrestrial designs,” said Danny Sabour, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Avalanche Technology. “We are delighted to be supporting the growing Asian space community with an innovative partner like RAiTEK, which recognizes how to leverage these game changing capabilities in a meaningful way.”
Avalanche Space Grade MRAMs
Space Grade families are offered as a standard product in Parallel with asynchronous SRAM-compatible timing and Dual QSPI high speed serial interface in various density options from 16 to 64Mb in the Gen 2 family and from 1Gb to 8Gb in the Gen 3 family of products. Designed for High-Reliability with multibit error correction and industry leading 1016 write cycle endurance, data is always non-volatile. The devices are offered in small footprint packaging and extended operating temperature range (-40°C to 125°C) with a JEDEC qualification flow, where every device goes through a 48-hour burn in before being shipped to customers. There are additional qualification screening and packaging options available through partners.
