Gamma Sterilization

Medical accessories, cables, and peripherals can often benefit from using non-volatile memory for the embedded storage of product characteristics, identification, calibration, or usage monitoring. Unfortunately, this benefit is frequently unrealized when gamma radiation is the required sterilization method.

The 1-Wire® gamma radiation resistant memory supports these memory needs through the gamma sterilization process, with a single, dedicated contact in situations where interconnect must be minimized.

Benefits of 1-Wire gamma radiation resistant memory

  • Gamma radiation resistant up to 75kGy (kilo Gray)
  • Unique factory-programmed, 64-bit identification number
  • Automatically calibrates sensors or consumables
  • Write protection for individual memory pages
