FRAM or ferroelectric memory has been used in space application and is considered high reliability. It has high radiation resistance, virtually unlimited endurance, excellent retention over a wide temperature range and fast programming times. The fit failure rate for a 1K bit device from Matsushita testing is two fits at 27 degrees C and less than 100 at 70 degrees C.
