Case Study:  Hemodialysis Machine

Nikkiso Co., Ltd. of Japan, a worldwide leader in the industrial, aerospace and medical equipment market, uses MRAM in their hemodialysis machines as a data log for machine performance parameters as well as individual patient parameters.

Engineers at Nikkiso chose Everspin 4Mb and 16Mb MRAM products because of the inherent non-volatility of MRAM, requiring no battery or capacitors, the unlimited non-volatile write endurance and high speed in both non-volatile write cycles and read cycles. These unique MRAM attributes increase the reliability of the system which is of the utmost importance in Nikkiso’s high reliability medical equipment market.

MRAM in Medical Applications

The simple asynchronous SRAM interface of Everspin’s parallel I/O MRAM products made Nikkiso’s design easy to implement without additional components. The robust reliability of Everspin MRAM technology allowed Nikkiso engineers to satisfy the demanding requirements of the patient critical medical equipment market with Everspin’s standard commercial grade products.
