Avalanche Technology Announces Family of STT-MRAM for Space-IoT™ Applications

New low density parallel Space Grade P-SRAM memory devices complete the portfolio of Gen-3 High Reliability MRAM developed specifically for use in Space

Fremont, California, October 13, 2021 – Avalanche Technology, the leader in next generation MRAM technology, announced today its new 3rd generation space-grade parallel asynchronous x32-interface high-reliability P-SRAM (Persistent SRAM) memory devices, based on its latest Spin Transfer Torque Magneto-resistive RAM (STT-MRAM) technology, will be available in 64Mb and 256Mb densities. These new products simplify the system design, and by unifying the memory architecture, reduce the power and size requirements of the system, improving overall system reliability and life.

“Avalanche’s MRAM devices have given us new high-reliability options for our heterogeneous AI and space computing platforms. With densities from 64Mb to 4Gb in the smallest footprint available, we plan to utilize them in our next generation AI-SBCs. This will further enable realization of our AI Accelerators in the rapidly growing space processing ecosystem. Avalanche MRAM’s combination of speed, density, and performance offers us an attractive alternative to traditional MRAM solutions” said David J. Strobel, co-Founder and Executive Chairman at Space Micro Inc.

“With this new product release, Avalanche is enabling smaller and cheaper form factor low power platforms in space specifically targeting Space-IoT™ applications. The new monolithic 64Mb and stacked 256Mb P-SRAM devices enable customers to design unified memory architecture systems for high reliability space applications, in extremely small form factors.” said Danny Sabour, VP of Sales and Marketing at Avalanche Technology. “As IoT nodes move to space in Low Earth Orbit, we will see the enablement of the next generation of Space-IoT™ platforms based on Avalanche’s Unified Memory Architecture”.

The Parallel x32 Space Grade series is now offered in 64Mb, 256Mb, 1Gb and 4Gb density options and has asynchronous SRAM compatible 45ns/45ns read/write timings. Data is always non-volatile with >10^16 write cycles endurance and 10-year retention at 125°C. 64Mb and 256Mb devices will be available in a 128-Ball FBGA (13mm x 13mm) package. Additionally, the 1Gb and 4Gb devices will be available in a footprint-compatible 142-Ball FBGA (17mm x 15mm) package. These memory devices are offered in Space Grade (-40°C to 125°C) operating temperature range. Every unit goes through a 48-hour burn-in before it is shipped to customers.
