Future Electronics Offers Immediate Availability of EverSpin’s MRAM Products

Montreal, Canada – August 29, 2013 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, announces immediate availability of MRAM products from EverSpin.

Everspin’s patented MRAM technology is based on a magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) storage element that is deposited on top of a standard logic process. The MTJ contains a fixed layer that is always polarized in one direction, separated from a free layer by a tunnel barrier. When the free layer is polarized in the same direction as the fixed layer, the MTJ exhibits a low resistance across the tunnel barrier. When the free layer is polarized in the reverse direction, the MTJ has a high resistance. This magnetoresistive effect allows MRAM to read data quickly without altering the memory state.

The MTJ at the cross-point of two metal lines is polarized (written) when the magnetic fields from currents flowing through two metal lines become sufficient to switch the MTJ. This is accomplished at SRAM speed.

One benefit of the MTJ storage element is magnetic polarization does not leak away like an electric charge. Data can be retained for long periods of time at extended temperatures. Another benefit is that switching the magnetic polarization between the two states does not involve actual movement of electrons or atoms, thus no known wear-out mechanism exists.

Example MRAM applications and corresponding benefits include: RAID Storage for Servers and Storage Arrays, where critical write journals and write cache information are updated at SRAM speed and always retained during power failures; Communications Systems, where critical system parameters and packet information are retained without backup systems; Transportation, Military and Avionics Systems, where highly reliable system operation is ensured over extreme temperature conditions and environments; Automatic Meters and Printers, where continuously updated customer usage data is never lost during power failure even under extreme temperatures and extended field life; Industrial Motor Control and Robotics, where multiple axis positional data is constantly updated, and safe, rapid restarts follow any power loss; Industrial Power and Energy Management, for reliable operation even under transient power conditions; Health Care Electronics, for easy to use, highly reliable memory in health care instrumentation and systems.
