pMTJ STT-MRAM developer Avalanche Technology announced plans to start producing some of its MRAM devices at LA Semiconductor, a US-based mixed-signal foundry at Pocatello ID (a former onsemi site) with its 180 nm mixed signal and power process capabilities.

Avalanche Technology says that by moving its production  to the US, it shows its commitment to the local aerospace and defense community with an assured source of domestic manufacturing.

Avalanche started shipping its Serial P-SRAM STT-MRAM memory devices in September 2020. In May 2021 the company announced it started shipping space-grade 16Mb - 64Mb devices. In 2019 Avalanche Technology announced a $33 million funding round led by Thomvest Ventures.
