pMTJ STT-MRAM developer Avalanche Technology announced that it is providing its MRAM Persistent SRAM chips to industrial touch screen applications developed by FALINUX.
FALINUX is using Avalanche's 8Mb P-SRAM device in its next generation Human Machine Interface (HMI) products used in industrial automation systems. The company says it chose Avalanche's MRAM technology due to its ease of use, instant write capability, practically unlimited endurance and data retention in harsh environmental conditions.
FALINUX further explains that HMI requires an external non-volatile expansion RAM memory to store pre-rendered graphics, messages, and data related to alarms and internal registers. Data and message logging require the RAM to have high endurance to survive repeated read-write operations. This RAM also needs to be capable of fast and reliable writes, in order to protect data in the event of unexpected power loss.
