Everspin Technologies expands top-performing persistent memory product range
Everspin Technologies, the world's leading developer and manufacturer of Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory (MRAM) persistent memory solutions, has announced its plans to expand its top-grade, high-density STT-MRAM product family, the EMxxLX. Initially introduced last year, the EMxxLX product is currently the highest-performing persistent memory available, perfectly suited for a variety of electronic systems including industrial IoT, network and enterprise infrastructure, process automation and control, aeronautics and avionics, medical, gaming and FPGA configuration.
Developed using Everspin's unique STT-MRAM technology, the EMxxLX, an industry-first xSPI serial interface persistent memory, is the sole commercially available persistent memory with a full read and write bandwidth of 400 megabytes per second using eight I/O signals with a clock frequency of 200MHz. The latest extended EMxxLX range executes the prime combination of performance, endurance, and retention, with capacities now in available densities ranging from 4 to 64 megabits. Further advancements include new, compact packaging for products from 4-to-16-megabits, as well as a new 5mm x 6mm DFN package that offers an area saving of 37% over existing offerings.
The enhanced EMxxLX products also boast an extended temperature range of -40C to 105C, offering robustness and adaptability to a wide range of environmental conditions. Given these strides in technology and design, Everspin's MRAM product range can effectively replace alternative solutions such as SRAM, BBSRAM, FRAM, NVSRAM, and NOR flash devices.
"In the fast-growing Industrial IoT and embedded systems markets, customers, more than ever, need to protect critical system data under all conditions, particularly in the event of power loss and without concern for wear out or data integrity issues," stressed Sanjeev Aggarwal, President and CEO of Everspin Technologies. "That's why we are proud to announce the expansion of our EMxxLX MRAM product line, now featuring not only SRAM-like performance with low latency and the ability to maintain memory without requiring power but also an extended temperature range to cater to diverse environmental demands. With the addition of a 4Mb capacity option, our MRAM devices provide even more options to select the optimal density solutions. They continue to deliver extremely high endurance, remain compatible with other memory types, and offer ease of integration into customers' designs."
The 4Mb capacity option, presented in the smaller DFN package, is now available for sample testing, with full production scheduled for the first quarter of 2024. Everspin is currently taking production orders for the 8Mb to 64Mb capacity options, which also offer the extended temperature range.
Everspin Technologies leads the world in the provision of Magnetoresistive RAM (MRAM) and is renowned for delivering robust, high-performance, non-volatile memory for diverse mission-critical applications such as the Industrial IoT, Data Centres and Automotive sectors. The company is headquartered in Chandler, Arizona.
