Collaboration allows IDT to be a single source of the primary semiconductor devices for factory and industrial automation, IoT, medical device and other growing markets.

October 17, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif., October 17, 2019 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE: 6723), today announced that it now offers Avalanche’s magnetic RAM (MRAM) devices to complement the extensive range of power, sensor, timing and microcontroller devices from Renesas. This allows IDT to serve as a single source for all the primary semiconductor devices manufacturers need for industrial control and automation systems, programmable logic controllers, medical diagnostic probes and equipment, multifunction printers, and IoT devices.

Avalanche’s MRAM devices are ideal for high-speed, non-volatile memory applications such as program storage and data backup. IDT will offer Avalanche’s 4Mbit, 8Mbit and 16Mbit MRAM devices in two packages (SOIC and WSON) with two different temperature ratings (85°C and 105°C). Available speeds will be up to 108MHz, with configurable interfaces for SPI, DPI, QPI with Single-Data-Rate and Double-Data-Rate modes.

“We are excited by this collaboration with Avalanche Technology, as we can now offer our customers the widest range of serial interface MRAM products,” said Steven Lee, technical director of the IoT sensors group at IDT. “Avalanche’s MRAM devices are an ideal complement to our own industry-leading lines of power, sensor, timing and microcontroller devices.”

“Avalanche is bringing added benefit to our customers by enabling new usage models in industrial and automotive designs where data integrity and reliability, as well as persistence, are key,” said Danny Sabour, VP of Marketing and Business Development of Avalanche technology. “Teaming up with IDT, a world leader in semiconductor manufacturing, enables us to bring our leading edge products to market more quickly.”
