QCOTS NOR Flash Overview
RadHard by Design SONOS NOR Flash Memory

Modern space FPGAs, ASICs and processors, including our NOEL-V/LEON microprocessors, require larger boot memories and the ability to retain multiple images for mission adaptability.

Proven in the most critical data storage applications, our new rad-hard by design (RHBD) NOR Flash memories leverage robust silicon-oxide-nitride-oxide-silicon (SONOS) technology to deliver greater reliability and higher densities, including the space industry’s first 1Gb monolithic Flash memory device.

Designed for flight, our SONOS RHBD NOR Flash memories have the highest levels of space assurance required for the longest, harshest space missions.

QCOTS NOR Flash Density
Higher Density

Purpose-built from the ground-up using proven-reliable, intrinsically radiation resilient SONOS technology, our RHBD NOR Flash memories are the most reliable, non-volatile solution for efficient, multi-image storage that meets the needs of current and next generation FPGAs, including Xilinx’s AI-optimized VERSALTM devices.

QCOTS NOR Flash Reliability
Higher Reliability and Endurance

SONOS technology has exceptional bit cell radiation resilience, delivering over 300 krad (Si) TID and 100K cycles per sector performance.

Radiation hardening by design techniques further lower error rates making these devices ideally suited to the highest reliability mission profiles in the harshest environments.

Our SONOS RHBD NOR Flash memories will be qualified to QML-Q and QML-V.

Less Power in a Smaller Package

When it comes to size, weight and power (SWaP) performance, SONOS technology delivers here too.

Our RHBD NOR Flash memories provide the most area and power-efficient solution compared to other radiation-hardened approaches.

A single 1Gb SONOS RHBD NOR Flash device can store multiple Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ XQRKU060 FPGA boot images, while typically consuming less than 0.1W of power.
