Mercury Systems announces high-capacity space-qualified flash memory

Ultra-high-density storage solution is highly reliable in applications with potential radiation exposure

ANDOVER, Mass., Nov. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com), a leader in trusted, secure mission-critical technologies for aerospace and defense, today announced its latest NAND flash non-volatile memory device. Featuring a plastic ball-grid array (BGA) package meeting NASA’s EEE-INST-002 space-grade application guidelines, these purpose-built radiation-tolerant devices are ideal for ultra-high density memory storage applications that require high reliability in high-radiation environments like Space.

“Our new purpose-built flash memory augments the latest commercial semiconductor technology with trusted manufacturing and radiation tolerance, delivering a solution ideal for on-orbit data processing,” said Tom Smelker, vice president and general manager, Mercury Microsystems. “It’s through this close collaboration with the semiconductor industry that Mercury is able to accelerate technology adoption in the new space economy, enabling more agile and cost-effective satellite constellations.”

The NAND flash memory’s 32 GB high-capacity storage makes it ideal for data-intensive applications including artificial intelligence and machine learning. Its high reliability minimizes failures in the field, while its optimal size, weight, and power (SWaP) profile enables customers to use more memory in less space than other memory devices.

Mercury envisions, creates, and delivers innovative technology solutions purpose-built to meet their customers’ most pressing high-tech needs. For more information, visit the NAND Flash product page or contact Mercury at (866) 627-6951 or info@mrcy.com.
