Abstract: All space missions have a need for nonvolatile memory (NVM), which maintains data integrity when unpowered. Types of NVM include PROM, EEPROM, NOR Flash, and NAND Flash. PROMs, NOR Flash, and EEPROMs are good choices for storing smaller file size data such as boot code or FPGA configurations. These products have excellent data retention characteristics and can reliably store data for years, unpowered, without any data corruption. They can also be read many times without disturbing the data. Another application of NVM is storage of science and engineering data, which requires large of amounts of memory. The highest density memories available today are SDRAM and NAND Flash. However, the power required to operate and store data in NAND Flash is far less than SDRAM. Wherever high density and low power is required, NAND Flash is very attractive.
