This paper demonstrates the use of MRAM devices with a next-generation of powertrain microprocessor. The prototype boards were created that integrated a powertrain microcontroller with the Everspin MRAM MRA16A (2 pcs of x16 bits) and MR2xH50 (@ a SCK 40MHz) chips. An investigation was performed evaluating the MRAM capabilities for storing and retrieving data during simulated key-off and key-on events.
