Mercury is leveraging Avalanche’s PSRAM(TM) products to build the next family of SWaP optimized, in-orbit software-defined processing platforms
FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Avalanche Technology, the leader in next generation MRAM technology, announced today that its Persistent-SRAM (P-SRAM) products were chosen by Mercury Systems for the new SCFE6933, a next-generation processor board that will enable faster processing of data in orbit. The high-density 8Gb DQSPI Space Grade Persistent SRAM with further scalability is the ideal companion to the AMD (Xilinx) Versal Adaptive SoC platform that is featured on this platform.
Mercury chose Avalanche’s STT MRAM-based Space Grade P-SRAM products for their processing architecture because of their ability to offer optimal SWaP, scalability, robustness and mission adaptability, critical to growing satellite network providers looking for common hardware platforms. Mercury, with their vast industry experience as a trusted provider of solutions to the global aerospace and defense industries, needed a memory product capable of performing not just for today’s missions but scalable for future designs. In the end, the radiation resilience, high reliability, high density, and nearly unlimited write cycle endurance of the Avalanche Space Grade family made it the ideal solution for Mercury’s SCFE6933.
“With more than 40 years of accumulated expertise in aerospace and defense, high-performance computing and storage, Mercury has designed the SCFE6933 to enable the next generation of space missions to turn data into real-time decisions,” said Brian Kimball, Systems Architect and product development lead at Mercury. “Avalanche’s disruptive MRAM solutions, coupled with AMD’s advanced processing hardware, allow us to support the next generation of multi-mission platforms capable of high-performance computing in space, allowing data to be processed in orbit faster and more efficiently.”
“Avalanche’s Space Grade P-SRAM family is the only choice when multi-image capabilities are a must in modern space architectures, enabling the adaptability of missions on the fly,” said Paul Chopelas, General Manager, Space Products division at Avalanche Technology. “We are delighted to be enabling the space ecosystem with the next level of configurable computing power in space with an industry leader like Mercury. Our swap-optimized memory solutions combined with Mercury’s expertise in fielding space systems and components with a track record of more than 65 satellite and launch vehicle programs with no failures in space assures our customers of a bright future of high-performance computing in space”.
Avalanche Space Grade MRAMs
The Gen 3 Space Grade families are offered as a standard product in Parallel with asynchronous SRAM-compatible timing and Dual QuadSPI high speed serial interface in various density options from 1Gb to 8Gb. Data is always non-volatile and Space grade devices have industry leading write cycle endurance at 10^16. The devices are offered in small footprint packaging and extended operating temperature range (-40C to 125C) 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 options available through partners.
