Avalanche Technology – The Next-Generation MRAM Company
Avalanche Technology, headquartered in Fremont, California, is the world leader in Spin Transfer Torque Magnetic RAM (STT-MRAM) non-volatile memory leveraging perpendicular magnetic tunnel junction (pMTJ) cell structure manufactured on 300mm standard CMOS process.
Backed by more than 300+ granted patents around cell, circuit, and system design leveraging MRAM, our technology and products provide breakthrough speeds, unlimited endurance and non-volatility while reducing power and cost. With such attributes, our technology will serve and exceed our customers’ objectives as a replacement for SRAM, eFlash, and ROM in embedded applications in addition to discrete SRAM, non-volatile SRAM, NOR and DRAM.
Avalanche’s discrete MRAM devices are perfect for applications that must store/retrieve data without incurring large latency penalties. These devices also offer low power, high endurance, and high performance with scalability.
Avalanche provides low energy, scalable, high endurance non-volatile random access memory macros through foundry partners. These macros enable quick and efficient implementation of complex and cost-effective SoC designs.
Aerospace & Defense
The space radiation environment leads to extremely harsh operating conditions for on-board electronics. Radiation accelerates the aging of semiconductor parts and materials, leading to degradation of electrical performance or premature failure. In addition to radiation, operating in space applications exposes to extreme temperatures ranging from -55°C to 125°C for mission lifetimes that can exceed 15 years.
To combat these challenges, Avalanche Technology is developing a large portfolio (1Mb – 4Gb) of highly reliable, radiation hardened Persistent SRAM (P-SRAM) products based on its proprietary pMTJ STT-MRAM technology designed to operate successfully in these harsh environments. P-SRAM is analogous to Flash technology with SRAM compatible read/write timings. Data is always non-volatile with unlimited endurance and greater than 20-year retention.
Avalanche has partnered with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center to evaluate its first generation P-SRAM products. The report is available HERE.
