by Justin Hughes
CHANDLER, AZ/KULIM, MALAYSIA — Everspin Technologies, Inc. entered into a multi-year partnership with SilTerra, situated in Kulim, Malaysia, to make additional manufacturing capacity for Toggle Magnetoresistive RAM (MRAM) products. This partnership is part of a three-way agreement between Everspin, SilTerra and Bosch Sensortec, a licensee of Everspin’s TMR sensor intellectual property.
Through this partnership, Everspin will increase its production capacity to accommodate growing demand for its Toggle MRAM products in the industrial, computing, medical, and transportation markets, where fast, reliable, non-volatile memory is critical. Initial production is planned to begin in 2020.
Kevin Conley, Everspin’s CEO, said, “Everspin is proud to partner with Bosch Sensortec and SilTerra in taking this strategic step of creating new manufacturing capacity for our products. Continued expansion in the manufacturing capacity for our Toggle MRAM products is a key pillar of our long-term growth strategy.”
Everspin will still maintain and operate its manufacturing line in tandem for Toggle MRAM and TMR sensor products in Chandler, AZ. That capacity is operated under a cleanroom lease and manufacturing agreement with NXP.
Mr. Firdaus Abdullah, SilTerra’s CEO, added, “We are excited about the manufacturing partnership with Everspin and Bosch Sensortec. SilTerra is committed to deliver best-in-class manufacturing capacity support and service to ensure rapid ramp up of products to meet market expectations.”
