Everspin Technologies to Provide Airbus with MRAM Products for Advanced Wide Body Aircraft.
Flight Control Computer on A350 XWB XWB Extra Wide Body (Airbus) Aircraft Uses MRAM (Magnetic RAM) A non-volatile, random access memory technology that is designed to initially replace flash memory and, potentially, DRAM memory. MRAM uses magnetic, thin film elements on a silicon substrate that can be built on the same chip with the logic circuits. for Critical Program and Data Storage in Extreme Environment Applications
CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Everspin Technologies has been chosen by Airbus to supply high-performance MRAM products for flight-critical applications on the A350 XWB family of aircraft currently in development. MRAM's unique features allow customers to simplify their system design and MRAM's high level of reliability enables operation in extreme temperature and harsh environmental conditions associated with avionics and aerospace markets.
Everspin will supply 4Mb and 16Mb MRAM products for the Flight Control Computer on the Airbus A350 XWB civil aircraft. MRAM allows Airbus to replace previously used SRAM See static RAM.
SRAM - static random-access memory and Flash components with a single non-volatile read/write memory Same as RAM. that provides faster speeds, unlimited write cycles and easier software updates.
"We are very pleased that Airbus is able to replace multiple memories with an MRAM in the Flight Control Computers in its latest generation of advanced aircraft," said Saied Tehrani, Everspin's chief operating officer Chief Operating Officer (COO)
The officer of a firm responsible for day-to-day management, usually the president or an executive vice-president. . "Our MRAM product reliability, high-speed read and write performance and cost effectiveness allows us to meet Airbus' system performance requirements, as well as their high quality standards."
Everspin's MRAM is a revolutionary memory that uses the magnetism of electron spin Electron spin
That property of an electron which gives rise to its angular momentum about an axis within the electron. Spin is one of the permanent and basic properties of the electron. to provide non-volatility with no wear-out. Everspin MRAM stores information in magnetic material integrated with silicon circuitry to deliver highly reliable non-volatile memory Refers to memory chips that hold their content without power being applied. It may refer to chips that are not changeable, such as ROMs and PROMs, or to chips that can be rewritten many times such as flash memory. with SRAM-like speed. This enables a true "instant-on" capability and power loss protection in many classes of electronic devices over a wide temperature range and for a variety of applications including: storage, industrial automation, gaming, energy management, communications, consumer, transportation and avionics.
