AMCC Uses MoSys' 1T-SRAM Embedded Memory Technologies for Development of Traffic Management Communications Tools
SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 24, 2003-- MoSys, Inc. (Nasdaq:MOSY) the industry's leading provider of high density SoC embedded memory solutions, today announced an expanded relationship with Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) (Nasdaq:AMCC). AMCC incorporates MoSys' 1T-SRAM(R) embedded memory technologies into its traffic management solutions, providing the high-performance memory necessary for AMCC's high-speed networking ICs.
"With MoSys' advanced memory technologies, AMCC can offer our customers leading-edge solutions with the increased performance needed to drive today's optical networks," said Greg Winner, senior vice president engineering and quality, AMCC. "MoSys' 1T-SRAM embedded memory offers superior density than other technologies and we look forward to extending our relationship with the company by incorporating these unique memory technologies into our telecommunications products."
"The high-density memory capabilities of MoSys' 1T-SRAM allows AMCC to develop innovative products that deliver a superior level of systems integration," said Mark-Eric Jones, vice president and general manager of intellectual property, MoSys. "This unique memory capability, which is compatible with standard CMOS technology, enables real systems-on-a-chip for the networking arena."
Founded in 1991, MoSys (Nasdaq:MOSY), develops, licenses and markets innovative memory technologies for semiconductors. MoSys' patented 1T-SRAM technologies offer a combination of high density, low power consumption, high speed and low cost unmatched by other available memory technologies. The single transistor bit cell used in 1T-SRAM memory results in the technology achieving much higher density than traditional four or six transistor SRAMs, while using the same standard logic manufacturing processes. 1T-SRAM technologies also offer the familiar, refresh-free interface and high performance for random address access cycles associated with traditional SRAMs. In addition, these technologies can reduce operating power consumption by a factor of four compared with traditional SRAM technology, contributing to making it ideal for embedding large memories in System on Chip (SoC) designs. MoSys' licensees have shipped more than 50 million chips incorporating 1T-SRAM embedded memory, demonstrating the excellent manufacturability of the technology in a wide range of silicon processes and applications. MoSys is headquartered at 1020 Stewart Drive, Sunnyvale, California 94085. More information is available on MoSys' website at http://www.mosys.com.
AMCC designs, develops, manufactures, and markets high-performance, high-bandwidth silicon solutions empowering intelligent wide-area networks. AMCC utilizes a combination of digital, mixed-signal and high-frequency analog design expertise coupled with system-level knowledge and multiple silicon process technologies to offer integrated circuit products that enable the transport of voice and data over fiber optic networks. The company's system solution portfolio includes switch fabric, traffic management, network processor, framer/mapper, PHY and PMD devices that address the high-performance needs of the evolving intelligent optical network.
