COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., 20 Dec. 2011. Aeroflex Inc. in Colorado Springs, Colo., is introducing the UT8QNF8M8 64-megabit NOR Flash memory, a radiation-tolerant 3-volt memory organized as 8Mx8 or 4Mx16 for satellites and other space applications. The UT8QNF8M8 NOR Flash is a non-volatile solution that has memory capacity large enough to hold a typical application program or operating system kernel, Aeroflex officials say. Aeroflex is a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp. (NYSE:ARX).
The UT8QNF8M8 NOR Flash device operates from one power supply voltage of 3.3 volts for read and write functions, and operate in temperatures from -55 to 105 degrees Celsius. The device is designed to be programmed in-system with 3.3-volt Vcc supply and can also be programmed in standard PROM programmers. The rad-hard device withstands total-dose radiation of 10 or 30 megarads, depending on the model.
"Radiation characterization has been completed and the UT8QNF8M8 will be offered at 10 and 30 krads(Si) with a goal of 50 krads(Si) and SEL immunity of 80MeV-cm2/mg," says Anthony Jordan, Aeroflex director-standard products. "During SEE testing only a soft reset was required to restore functionality to the device, no power cycle was needed."
The UT8QNF8M8 is offered in a 48-lead flatpack, Q and Q+ qualified and will be available to Standard Microcircuit Drawings. For more information contact Aeroflex online at www.aeroflex.com/memories.
