Trusted Semiconductor Solutions Leverages Avalanche’s Advanced MRAMs to offer RadHard 3U Space VPX Single Board Computer
Fremont, CA, July 12, 2023 – Avalanche Technology, the leader in next generation MRAM technology, announced today that it is providing its enabling Space Grade Persistent SRAM (P-SRAM) products for a new Radiation Hardened SpaceVPX Single Board Computer (SBC), developed by industry partner, Trusted Semiconductor Solutions (TSS). Based in Minneapolis, TSS is a long time stalwart for the radiation hardened ecosystem, providing valuable products and services in support of this community’s highly specialized requirements.
This new SpaceVPX hardware platform will be one of the first to leverage the recently announced partnership between Avalanche Technology and Eideticom, recognized leader of terrestrial NVMe storage solutions, for envisioned rollout of data buffers and data centers in space. Set for availability in 3Q23, this SpaceVPX platform from TSS will build on device and system level domain expertise and optionally layer in Eideticom’s highly efficient NVMe software stack for a customizable and scalable platform solution in support of a variety of evolving program needs. Additional detail about this new platform and others resulting from this partnership will be outlined by Avalanche General Manager, Paul Chopelas, at the IEEE Space Computing Conference on Tuesday, July 18th, being held at Caltech, sponsored by NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
“By combining Avalanche’s industry leading high-reliability, endurance and density Space Grade MRAMs with Eideticom’s efficient NVMe stack software and TSS’s decades of experience providing radiation hardened hardware, the industry is one step closer to realizing a seamless and resilient distributed storage network in space,” said Danny Sabour, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Avalanche Technology. “We are delighted to partner with leading industry providers like Trusted Semiconductor Solutions.”
“By leveraging Avalanche’s MRAM technology and optional NVMe software stack from Eideticom, Trusted Semiconductor Solutions will deliver innovative, reconfigurable compute and storage solutions to the Aerospace & Defense community in addition to other high reliability applications,” said Al Hurst, President and CEO of Trusted Semiconductor Solutions. “Building on TSS’s rich heritage as a trusted partner in the radiation hardened ecosystem, this tailorable SWaP-optimized platform offers a key ingredient for distributed secure computing storage in space, required for mission adaptability.”
Avalanche Gen 3 Persistent SRAM
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 1016. 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 options available through partners.
