About Ramtron International Corp.
Ramtron International Corporation engages in the design, development, and marketing of specialized semiconductor memory, microcontrollers, and integrated semiconductor solutions. The company integrates analog and mixed-signal functions, such as microprocessor supervision, tamper detection, timekeeping, and power failure detection onto a single device with its F-RAM.
The company offers solutions used by customers for a range of applications in the metering, computing and information systems, automotive, communications, consumer and industrial, and scientific and medical markets. Its product portfolio includes stand-alone products, integrated products, and microcontroller devices.
The company has expanded its F-RAM product line to include various interfaces and densities, which include serial and parallel interfaces; package types; and 4-kilobit, 16-kilobit, 64-kilobit, 256-kilobit, 1-megabit, 2-megabit, and 4-megabit densities.
The companys serial and parallel memories contain industry-standard interfaces that are used in electronic applications. System designers use serial memories to collect data.
Integrated Mixed-Signal Products
The companys integrated F-RAM products, called processor companions, are single-chip solutions that replace individual system components. The processor companion family is the most integrated F-RAM product line developed and provides on a single chip the most commonly needed system functions for various applications. Processor companions combine nonvolatile F-RAM with analog and mixed-signal circuitry, such as a real-time clock (RTC), a processor supervisor, and other commonly needed peripheral functions. Processor Companions are available in various memory density and mixed-signal feature configurations. Processor companions are used in similar applications to its serial and parallel F-RAM memory technologies but provide system's functions with a single device.
The companys integrated F-RAM microcontrollers are mixed-signal 8051 microcontrollers that offer a solution for a range of signal conditioning, data acquisition and control applications. These products include on-chip analog peripherals such as a pulse width modulators (used as digital-to-analog (D/A) converters), a voltage reference, a programmable source, an uncommitted operational amplifier, digital potentiometers and an analog switch, making them data acquisition System-on-Chip (SoC) devices.
Wireless Memory and RFID Products
The companys wireless memory products can read from and written to via wireless connections to the host system. The companys semiconductor products, which use memory and concluded that a new class of F-RAM enabled wireless memories, could capitalize on the emerging need for high-performance mobile data collection and storage. One method of enabling wireless access to F-RAM memory is to add standardized wireless protocols, such as those commonly used for radio frequency identification (RFID) applications.
In 2009, the company entered into a foundry services agreement with International Business Machines Corporation (IBM). Pursuant to the agreement, its F-RAM semiconductor process technology would be installed in IBM's Burlington, Vermont, advanced wafer manufacturing facility to produce its products on IBM's standard 180-nanometer CMOS wafer process.
The company announced the FM24CL32 and FM24L256, which are 32-Kilobit (Kb) and 256Kb, 2.7- to 3.6-volt nonvolatile F-RAM memory devices with a high-speed serial I2C memory interface. The devices provide high-performance data collection memory in a small, 8-pin package.
The company also announced its 4-megabit (Mb) and 8Mb F-RAM memories in a streamlined FBGA package. The FM22LD16 and FM23MLD16 are 4Mb and 8Mb, 3-volt, parallel nonvolatile RAMs in 48-pin ball grid array (FBGA) packages that target battery-backed SRAM replacement in industrial control systems, such as robotics, network and data storage applications, multi-function printers, auto navigation systems, and a host of other SRAM-based system designs.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
