AgigA Tech Achieves Safety and Compliance Certifications for Battery-Free Energy Modules
Cypress Subsidiary's PowerGEM™ Modules Receive Approval from UL and CSA
The PowerGEM modules allow designers to avoid problems of
battery-powered energy sources, including environmental impact,
increased design complexity, maintenance and conditioning,
shipping/storage/disposal overhead, short operating life, and a high
total cost of ownership. PowerGEM, when paired with an
"Reliability is priority one for applications that use our AGIGARAM
When used as a write cache in enterprise-class applications, AGIGARAM provides a performance-boosting building block while guarding against power failures and data loss. In addition to providing power, PowerGEM manages the charging/discharging, cycling, wear-monitoring and other module details to insure long life and high reliability. The entire AGIGARAM Non-Volatile System (NVS) implements the AGIGASAFE™ control protocol, a simple-to-use host-controlled I2C programming interface developed by AgigA Tech that ensures safe, reliable, secure operation at the system level. This protocol allows fine control over internal system functions such as managing the NAND Flash while providing precise health monitoring and tracking. The complex system-readiness system has also been reduced to a single "Good To Go" (or GTG) signal. For more information on AgigA Tech products visit www.agigatech.com.
