SANTA CLARA, Calif. and SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 11
/PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Key ASIC, a leading fabless design service provider
of System-on-Chip (SoC) products and MoSys, Inc. (Nasdaq: MOSY), the leader in
high-density SoC embedded memory IP, today announced a joint solution to
support the LCD driver market.
Key ASIC has licensed MoSys’ patented 1T-SRAM memory technology to target
customers designing high resolution LCD drivers. Key ASIC now includes
1T-SRAM memory technology as part of its IP portfolio, which includes the
functional blocks required to enable the design and manufacturing of LCD
driver products for the portable device market. This IP offering enables the
design of low-cost, low power display drivers supporting the highest display
resolutions in the market today.
“We chose MoSys’ 1T-SRAM technology because of its ability to provide the
high density memory needed for higher resolution displays. The speed and the
form factor of 1T SRAM is ideally suited for on-chip frame buffers,” said Alan
Aronoff, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Key ASIC.
“As display resolutions increase to HVGA and beyond, Key ASIC is well
positioned to support the leading-edge requirements for portable device
display driver integrated circuits.”
“At a rapid pace, mobile devices are moving to higher resolutions, and the
critical enabler is display driver ICs with dramatically more embedded memory.
However, display driver IC vendors face enormous cost and competitive
pressures,” said Len Perham, MoSys’ CEO and President. “We are pleased to be
working with Key ASIC to address the demanding requirements of the display
driver market. Key ASIC’s IP, design, and manufacturing services provide a
complete solution for high resolution portable LCD driver IC companies.”
