SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — MoSys, Inc.
(Nasdaq: MOSY), the leading provider of high-density embedded memory and
mixed-signal Intellectual Property (IP) solutions, today announced that it
recently demonstrated its All Format Front End Blu-Ray System-On-Chip IP in
Silicon, to potential customers.
The MoSys design, manufactured in a 130nm process technology, was recently
demonstrated on a reference platform to playback BD-ROM Title with AACS
Content Protection. It is now available as a single chip IP for integration
into a Back End Video and Display Processor, and can directly interface with a
laser Power Driver IC, thus lowering the electrical bill of materials for next
generation DVD platforms. The MoSys solution is the first in the industry to
support all next-generation Blue-Laser and current Red-Laser DVD formats in a
single, integrated design for multi-format DVD players and recorders, game
consoles, PCs, advanced Set-Top boxes, and digital video recorders. Support
for Blu-Laser formats at 8x read speed and 5x write speed include BD and
CHDVD, while Red Laser formats include DVD-ROM, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, all with
both single layer and dual layer media. Also included is support for Infrared
Laser formats such as CD-ROM, and CD-R/RW. By providing comprehensive
mixed-signal functionality and all-format support in a single IP, system
designers can minimize cost, improve integration, and optimize performance.
Customers can further improve upon such benefits with MoSys Roadmap products
for Blu-Ray players, and recorders, on 55nm and 40nm process nodes, with
factory tuned firmware support for different Optical Pickup Units (OPU).
Len Perham, MoSys’ President, Chief Executive Officer said, Our customers
are starting to innovate using MoSys analog and mixed-signal capability, which
enables new and exciting consumer applications. We are pleased to announce
that our complex Blu-Ray IP worked the first time in silicon, and we are
currently showcasing our technology to key customers.

Founded in 1991, MoSys (NASDAQ: MOSY), develops, licenses and markets
innovative memory and analog/mixed-signal technologies for semiconductors.
MoSys’ patented 1T-SRAM and 1T-FLASH technologies offer a combination of high
density, low power consumption, high speed and low cost unmatched by other
available memory technologies. 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, making them ideal for embedding large memories in System on Chip
(SoC) designs. MoSys’ licensees have shipped more than 135 million chips
incorporating 1T-SRAM embedded memory technologies, demonstrating excellent
manufacturability in a wide range of silicon processes and applications.
MoSys’ analog/mixed-signal products feature a number of industry firsts,
including the first DVD front end IP to support both Blu-ray and HD DVD
formats. Using MoSys IP, system vendors can achieve best-in-class
price/performance in markets such as home entertainment and graphics
applications; mobile consumer devices; and networking and storage equipment.
