SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov 03, 2011-- MoSys, Inc., (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leading provider of serial chip-to-chip communications solutions that deliver unparalleled bandwidth performance for next generation networking systems and advanced system-on-chip (SoC) designs, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011.
Third Quarter and Recent Highlights
- Ended the quarter with total cash and investments of $26.4 million;
- Announced availability of a Bandwidth Engine® FPGA Companion and Characterization Kit;
- Announced interoperability of the Bandwidth Engine integrated circuit (IC) family with Avago's SerDes;
- Bandwidth Engine IC named a finalist for the prestigious UBM TechInsights Most Innovative Memory Product award; and
- Achieved first design wins for the Bandwidth Engine IC.
"Revenue from license fees and royalties in the third quarter declined sequentially as our IP business was negatively impacted by global economic conditions and delays in customer acceptance of IP delivered under existing projects," commented Len Perham, MoSys' President and Chief Executive Officer. "Despite the current environment, we remain focused on further advancing our Bandwidth Engine family of ICs by continuing to engage with a growing list of prospective customers and partners. We recently achieved our first Bandwidth Engine design wins with two high-performance board suppliers. Additionally, the Bandwidth Engine IC is now being incorporated into system schematics at a number of design wins in progress with global networking equipment suppliers.
"During the quarter, we continued to make progress successfully demonstrating the interoperability of our Bandwidth Engine IC with high-performance network processing ASICs, such as those available from Avago Technologies. This achievement expands on our current interoperability success with FPGA devices from both Altera Corporation and Xilinx. We continue to work with both the network equipment companies and their SOC suppliers to further expand the acceptance and use of our GigaChip(TM) Interface for serial chip-to-chip applications in their future generations of line cards. Finally, we have now fully defined our next generation IC, Bandwidth Engine 2, and it has been released to the design team. Bandwidth Engine 2 will include significant performance upgrades and feature enhancements. We are very enthusiastic about the ongoing adoption of our revolutionary Bandwidth Engine family of products and look forward to sharing this information as it becomes available," concluded Mr. Perham.
