Micross & Avalanche Partner to Offer the Smallest and Lowest Power Hi-Rel Non-Volatile Memory for Aerospace Applications

Melville, New York, May 17, 2021 – Micross Components, Inc. (“Micross”), a leading global provider of mission-critical microelectronic components and services for high-reliability aerospace, defense, space and industrial applications announces an exclusive partnership with Avalanche Technology, the leader in next generation MRAM Technology. With this collaboration, Micross is the exclusive supplier of die and hermetically sealed devices utilizing Avalanche’s next-gen Spin Transfer Torque Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory (STT-MRAM).

Micross’ SWaP optimized hermetic STT-MRAM devices offer inherent protection from harsh environments, magnetic flux and radiation, while providing the most compact and best power profile non-volatile memory. MRAM devices are ideally suited for high-speed non-volatile memory applications, such as program storage and data backup in space and aerospace systems. Micross and Avalanche are addressing the need for more compact and lower power solutions that are optimized for hi-reliability aerospace & space applications, and are introducing a series of memory devices based on this best-in-class technology.

Micross is pleased to introduce the first of several densities to be released in the coming weeks for its new MRAM family, 16Mb STT-MRAM product variants (1M x 16 and 2M x 8) with Space and Military quality flows, and four hermetic 10mm x 10mm package variants (CLGA & CBGA in both 48 & 60 pad/solder-ball definitions) in RAD-HARD, RAD-Tolerant and Non-Radiation offerings. These products provide near infinite endurance with greater than 10-year data retention across the -40°C to +125°C temperature range. Both have a voltage operating range of 2.70-3.60V with a guaranteed minimum access time of 45ns across the military temperature range.


“We are excited to be working with Avalanche Technology and their industry-leading Spin Transfer Torque MRAM to expand our portfolio of hi-reliability solutions,” said Vincent Buffa, Micross Chairman and CEO. “This collaboration enables Micross to provide OEMs of aerospace and space systems with the most advanced, compact and power efficient microelectronics technology available.”

“With this new product release, Avalanche has enabled Micross to bring to market hi-reliability and space-grade non-volatile memory products that have the smallest form factor and lowest power,” said Petro Estakhri, CEO at Avalanche Technology. “The new 16Mb STT-MRAM devices allow customers to design the most compact and efficient unified memory architecture systems for aerospace applications.”
