Launched in May 2018, the InSight lander (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) has performed a perfect landing on Mars on November 26th.
3D PLUS is proud to announce it has provided 256Mb it NOR Flash modules on – board NASA’s InSight mission for boot and program storage. It allows a better miniaturization to save the space as well as 20 years data retention time for high – capacity non – volatile memory data storage needs. 3D PLUS has also supplied 32Gbit NAND Flash modules for experiments Mass Data storage that features endurance of 100K Write / Erase cycles per sector as well as 10 years data retention time. During InSight’s entry, descent and landing operations, the lander has transmitted information in the UHF radio band to NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) flying overhead. MRO is a NASA GSFC spacecraft launched in August 2005 with multiple 3D PLUS SRAM, SDRAM and EPROM modules on – board.
