NASAM SIGNS DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT WITH
LEADING SPACE MCU MANUFACTURER VORAGO TECHNOLOGIES
NASAM Inc., an AllClear company, has signed a distribution agreement with VORAGO Technologies. NASAM now serves as VORAGO’s distributor of its radiation-hardened and extreme temperature Arm®-based microcontroller solutions for deployment in space and high reliability markets in Japan and South Korea.
VORAGO is the only pure-play, Rad-hard Arm® company, providing radiation hardened components for extreme environments with its patented HARDSIL® technology. HARDSIL® enables cost-effective hardening for extreme environment operations and is compatible with high-volume production. Industry-standard Arm® cores provide advanced performance and efficiency while simplifying development.
VORAGO’s product portfolio includes space-grade and industrial-grade Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Cortex®-M0 MCUs that contain rich peripherals with up to 256KB on-chip flash and 64KB RAM. With up to 104 general-purpose I/Os and options including CAN2.0, 10/100 Ethernet, and space wire interfaces, the MCUs help designers save system size and weight and simplify end-product approval to applicable industry standards.
"We are very excited to add VORAGO’s products, the space-grade MCU (Microcontroller), into our space dedicated electronic component portfolio,” said Wei Qian, Vice President and General Manager for NASAM. “VORAGO’s high performance and high reliability MCUs will help our space market customers achieve the evolving performance and function requirements without compromising cost, power consumption and circuit size.”
“Partnering with NASAM in Japan and South Korea will allow us to reach a new base of customers whose projects can benefit from our radiation hardened MCUs,” commented Bernd Lienhard, chief executive officer of VORAGO. “We are excited to work with NASAM’s highly experienced team to grow our presence in Asia.”
Currently VORAGO offers eight devices with various combinations of peripherals. Options include an integrated temperature sensor, DMA controller, and integrated FRAM for improved data retention in environments that contain radiation. VORAGO MCUs offer specified radiation performance, including total ionizing dose of at least >200 krad(Si) and SEL immunity: > 110 (MeVcm²) /mg (at T=125°C).
NASAM will support the complete VORAGO portfolio of MCUs and development kits that help users achieve their mission.
