COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., 6 April 2010. Aeroflex Colorado Springs in Colorado Springs, Colo., is introducing two mil-spec, radiation-hardened synchronous dynamic access memory (SDRAM) solid-state memory devices for military, avionics, industrial, and other high-reliability applications.

The SDRAM multi-chip module (MCM) devices, which are part of the Aeroflex Quantified Commercial of the Shelf (QCOTS) memory family, are 2.5- and 3-gigabit SDRAM multi-chip-modules (MCM) organized 64M x 40 (UT8SDMQ64M40) and 64M x 48 (UT8SDMQ64M48).

The two SDRAM MCMs offer power consumption of 3.3 volts, access time of 133 MHz, and guaranteed performance via a Standard Microcircuit Drawing (SMD). Both products are assured to withstand 100 krad(Si) total-dose radiation, and are single event latchup immune (SEL) to 111 MeV-cm2/mg.

The first product offerings, the UT8SDMQ64M40 and UT8SDMQ64M48, will be offered in a 128-lead flatpack, Q and Q+ qualified and will be available to Standard Microcircuit Drawings. Prototypes are available now and production in 3Q2010. The UT8SDMQ64M40 is $4,675, QML Q, in lots of 100, while the UT8SDMQ64M48 is $5253.

"Aeroflex uses our QCOTS program as a method to quantifying COTS solutions for use in applications that have tough environmental operating requirements," says Anthony Jordan, director of standard products at Aeroflex.
