Thank you, Leanne, and good afternoon to those joining us on today's call. The third quarter marked another period of solid execution by the Everspin team and was further supported by other positive developments across our business. We achieved record STT-MRAM product revenue and sequential Toggle MRAM revenue growth over Q2.

Operations delivered well to its key objectives on product delivery and cost reduction. Additionally, we recently expanded our product roadmap, signed another meaningful patent license and have line of sight to increasing royalty revenue next year. These positive developments are happening against a backdrop of signs of recovery for many of our key markets and demand drivers.

Leading MRAM growth this quarter were components sold into the datacenter segment as a function of the rising number of new server builds, coupled with continued strong demand on the storage side. We saw meaningful increases in rate controller card builds in an enterprise server application, which benefit our Toggle products as well as continued progress in storage arrays for our STT-MRAM products. We expect this trend to continue throughout year
