MoSys embedded 1T- FLASH(TM) macro running at 100Mhz exceeds competitive
SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — MoSys, Inc.
(Nasdaq: MOSY), the leading provider of high-density system-on-chip (SoC)
embedded memory intellectual property (IP), today announced that it shipped
its first 1T-FLASH memory macro to Luminary Micro. The MoSys 1T-FLASH IP runs
at 100Mhz and is implemented in a standard 0.13u CMOS logic process. This
flash technology is substantially faster than other embedded flash memory
technologies. The MoSys technology is also the densest embedded Flash
technology available on a standard CMOS process. Luminary Micro, a provider
of embedded microcontrollers, will use the MoSys embedded 1T-FLASH memory
technology in upcoming versions of its microcontrollers.
The availability of fast, high-density embedded flash memory for the first
time on a pure CMOS process will enable companies like Luminary Micro to
further extend the capabilities of their products.
“MoSys’ technology will enable our Stellaris product line to serve markets
that have been difficult to reach with conventional flash memory technology,”
said Jim Reinhart, CEO of Luminary Micro. “With the MoSys technology and its
ability to run at up to 100 Mhz, we can provide new applications that before
would have been impossible or impractical with conventional embedded Flash
“We have reached an important milestone in our 1T-FLASH program with the
shipment of the first macro to Luminary Micro,” said Chet Silvestri, President
and CEO of MoSys. Silvestri added, “The market for microcontroller-based
applications using dense, fast embedded non-volatile memory exceeds billions
of units annually, and they require the kind of low cost, low operating power
and fast performance that our new 1T-FLASH technology offers.”
