SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 15, 2006–MoSys, Inc.
(Nasdaq:MOSY), the industry’s leading provider of high-density
system-on-chip (SoC) embedded memory solutions, and Chartered
Semiconductor Manufacturing, one of the world’s top dedicated
semiconductor foundries, announced today the successful volume
production of a range of high-performance networking and low-power
portable storage customer product applications, designed using MoSys’
1T-SRAM CLASSIC memory macros and manufactured on Chartered’s
0.13-micron logic process.
The 0.13-micron CLASSIC macros incorporate MoSys’ proprietary
1T-Q(R) folded capacitor bit cell for maximum density; and TEC(R)
error correction circuitry delivering the additional benefits of
improved yield and reliability with elimination of costly laser
repairs and dramatic reduction in soft error rates.
“MoSys and Chartered have presented a breakthrough solution to a
key manufacturing challenge for high-density embedded memory
products,” said Chet Silvestri, chief executive officer at MoSys, Inc.
“This latest, successful collaboration is based on a shared commitment
by the companies to meet the critical needs of a wide range of
customer requirements, with reliable and flexible products and
“Once again, Chartered has demonstrated the advanced capability of
its 0.13-micron process in bringing to market complex SoC designs,”
said Dominique Simon, president of the Americas at Chartered. “Working
together, Chartered and MoSys are well-positioned to help leading
semiconductor companies with high-performance and low-power product
demands benefit from a reliable production ramp to meet competitive
About MoSys Inc.
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 them ideal for embedding large memories in
System on Chip (SoC) designs. MoSys’ licensees have shipped more than
100 million chips incorporating 1T-SRAM embedded memory technologies,
demonstrating excellent manufacturability in a wide range of silicon
processes and applications. MoSys is headquartered at 755 N. Mathilda
Avenue, Sunnyvale, California 94085. More information is available on
