Defense Electronics

The performance requirements for memory components in defense applications are doubtlessly among the most demanding in the industry. Components are specifically built for stability and performance under a wide range of temperatures, altitudes, moisture, and harsh environmental conditions, and put through mission-critical test procedures.

Defense applications include gathering, monitoring, measuring, communicating, analyzing, and displaying information through devices for recording, telemetry, and tracking, satellites, surveillance, mapping, and guidance systems.


DRAM such as SMARTsemi DDR2, DDR3 and DDR4 are ideal for defense applications that require quick data access as well as allow fast erasing of data for security purposes.


eMMC and other FLASH components are suited for long-life applications where the embedded systems need to be lighter, faster, compact, and energy-efficient; a good match for rugged applications in the field.
