Three key aspects of VORAGO’s product strategy have enabled these advantages:

“Things just got a lot simpler for designers looking for the best choice in components to use in products that must withstand extreme conditions,” said Bernd Lienhard, chief executive officer of VORAGO Technologies. “With these new VORAGO MCUs, truly game-changing products can now be developed.”

“From space rockets to satellites, mining to medical applications and cars to industrial controllers, a huge variety of sectors are now using ARM-powered intelligent sensors to optimize and improve performance,” said Richard York, vice president of embedded marketing, ARM. “But as our technology spreads new challenges emerge, as some deployments present conditions that could damage a non-specialized device. The expertise brought by VORAGO, a leader in electronics for harsh environments, deals with that as they are expert in ensuring devices can withstand the most severe conditions.”

Distribution: VORAGO's REB1 Development Board is immediately available from VORAGO’s global distribution network.

Product Features:

VORAGO’s VA10800 Family of MCUs - built for extreme temperature.

VORAGO’s VA10820 Family of MCUs - radiation hardened.
