Adesto Introduces Low Power, Sterilization-Tolerant Memory for Medical IoT Applications
SUNNYVALE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, inventor and market leader of the world's lowest power
memory solutions, today announced the RM24EP family of
sterilization-tolerant, low energy non-volatile memory products
targeting wearable and other energy-conscious medical devices.
Manufactured with Adesto's robust memory technology known as CBRAM®,
these innovative products maintain data integrity during the harsh
temperature and irradiation conditions imposed by sterilization
processes used in medical device manufacturing. CBRAM's properties of
low power and high radiation tolerance offer an intriguing capability
for new and improved medical devices. Applications include wearable
electronics, orthopedics, smart syringes and sample containers, surgical
devices requiring sterilization before re-use, as well as many future
applications. The RM24EP family will also benefit applications that rely
upon boot code and reference and calibration data in areas such as RFID
bio-material tracking, drug delivery and capsule-endoscopy.
Although Flash-based memory serves as a backbone of many electronic
devices, sterilization modes usng high energy irradiation or elevated
temperature have challenged the survivability of traditional Flash
technology. In fact, experiments show that traditional Flash memories
can experience unrecoverable damage at only 1/50th of the typical
irradiation dose applied during a routine sterilization process.
"This weakness is limiting the features, intelligence and flexibility of
medical device designs that depend on memory storage," said Ishai Naveh,
VP of Marketing at Adesto. "It is also adding manufacturing steps and
cost to the end product. With an essential need for sterilization and
low-power operation, Adesto's CBRAM®-based products will open new
opportunities to medical product designers to add function to their
intelligent, energy-conscious medical devices."
RM24EP products maintain their stored data even in environments
exceeding dose levels of 50 kGy gamma and E-Beam radiation and
temperatures as high as 200�C. The new RM24EP serial interface memory
solutions are available in 32 kilobit, 64 kilobit and 128 kilobit
densities and produced on Adesto's proprietary CMOS-compatible resistive
memory architecture for simple integration with System-On-Chip
Pricing and Availability
The RM24EP and RM25EP narrow SOIC package versions are sampling now with
resale unit price of $0.54 in 10,000 unit volume.
