Aerospace and defense systems require rugged and reliable platforms that can operate in challenging environments. Conditions in these fields are characterized by extreme heat, cold, dust, shock, and vibration. When it comes to DRAM memory modules inside these systems, individual bit errors are common as they operate under extreme conditions, meaning their DRAM modules are repeatedly tested to their specification limits.
Our customer was involved in a project making flight instrument panels for AirBus and required a ruggedized memory solution to cope with mission-critical environments. A major concern was that memory modules would be affected by humidity and AirBus needed their systems to be highly resistant to moisture and humidity. They needed a ruggedized memory solution with the promise that key components could operate continuously 24/7 in AirBus aircraft under extreme conditions with total safety.
