E2v and Freescale target aerospace with MRAM

E2v is continuing its microprocessor agreement with Freescale Semiconductor and is considering expanding the scope of the deal to include magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM) products.

The agreement supports E2v's production of extended reliability versions of its microprocessors through additional screening, packaging and qualifications to meet military and aerospace standards.

“We also look forward to expanding our portfolio to include MRAM products. They will ideally complement our microprocessor products for embedded applications in severe environments by combining higher speed and increased reliability compared to other non-volatile memory solutions,” said Thierry Gouvernel, general manager of E2v’s microprocessors and services business.
