MRAM (Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory) is a next-generation memory technology, based on electron spin rather than charge and is often referred to as the "holy-grail of memory". MRAM is fast, high-density and non-volatile and can replace all kinds of memories used today in a single chip.

MRAM promises the density of DRAM with the speed of SRAM and data integrity of Flash - together resulting into instant on, non volatile computers and tiny, super fast and reliable portable devices. It promises a high-capacity next-generation memory and battery-backed up RAM as well as supplying improved non-volatile memory solutions for high-end mobile products.

Targeted MRAM devices include:

  • Aerospace avionics and military systems
  • Ditgital cameras
  • Notebooks
  • Smart cards
  • Mobile telephones
  • Cellular base stations
  • Personal computers
  • Battery-Backed SRAM replacement
  • Datalogging specialty memories (black box solutions)
  • Media players
  • Book readers

Pyroid® Pyrolytic Graphite is an enabling material in plasma etching for magnetic metal layers patterning, one of the most critical processes in MRAM production.

Pyroid® Pyrolytic Graphite can be easily machined and the material can be routinely manufactured into complicated parts with close tolerances, and supplied with a high level of surface finish, flatness or a defined surface roughness.

Pyrolytic Graphite exhibits the lowest erosion rate of any known material.

Customer Benefits:

Minimizing erosion provides

  • Longer tooling life
  • More precise beam focus


  • Increased productivity
  • Lower maintenance

and saving costs from production down time.

Using Pyroid® Pyrolytic Graphite ensures uniform heat distribution resulting in superior quality and increased productivity for current and next generation semiconductor and photovoltaic manufacturing processes.

Pyrogenics is accredited in accordance with the latest edition of AS9100D, an accepted international standard containing requirements for establishing and maintaining a quality management system for the aerospace industry.  AS9100D includes the requirements of ISO 9001: 2015 plus additional requirements for a quality management system for the aerospace industry.
