MoSys Ships World's Fastest Embedded Flash Memory to Luminary Micro

via PRNewswire

SUNNYVALE , Calif., July 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MoSys, Inc.(Nasdaq: MOSY), the leading provider of high-density system-on-chip (SoC)embedded memory intellectual property (IP), today announced that it shippedits first 1T-FLASH memory macro to Luminary Micro. The MoSys 1T-FLASH IP runsat 100Mhz and is implemented in a standard 0.13u CMOS logic process. Thisflash technology is substantially faster than other embedded flash memorytechnologies. The MoSys technology is also the densest embedded Flashtechnology available on a standard CMOS process. Luminary Micro, a providerof embedded microcontrollers, will use the MoSys embedded 1T-FLASH memorytechnology in upcoming versions of its microcontrollers.

The availability of fast, high-density embedded flash memory for the firsttime on a pure CMOS process will enable companies like Luminary Micro tofurther extend the capabilities of their products.

"MoSys' technology will enable our Stellaris product line to serve marketsthat have been difficult to reach with conventional flash memory technology,"said Jim Reinhart , CEO of Luminary Micro. "With the MoSys technology and itsability to run at up to 100 Mhz, we can provide new applications that beforewould have been impossible or impractical with conventional embedded Flashtechnologies."

"We have reached an important milestone in our 1T-FLASH program with theshipment of the first macro to Luminary Micro," said Chet Silvestri , Presidentand CEO of MoSys. Silvestri added, "The market for microcontroller-basedapplications using dense, fast embedded non-volatile memory exceeds billionsof units annually, and they require the kind of low cost, low operating powerand fast performance that our new 1T-FLASH technology offers."
