SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan. 24, 2005–In order to
respond to increasing demand for its products in Taiwan, Monolithic
System Technology, Inc. (MoSys), (Nasdaq:MOSY) the industry’s leading
provider of high-density system-on-chip (SoC) embedded memory
solutions, announced today that it has signed a sales representative
agreement with Terasic Technologies Inc.

Terasic Technologies, Inc focuses on providing ASIC verification
platforms; distributing Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools and
Intellectual Property (IP); and FPGA prototyping services for the ASIC
and semiconductor industries. Terasic Technologies, Inc provides
advanced solutions for many leading system and ASIC design houses in
Taiwan in the fields of EDA/IP, ASIC Verification, FPGA, and system
design. Backed up by a strong technical team, Terasic Technologies,
Inc adds value to both suppliers and customers by integrating
technical training, design consulting, and EDA services.

“A high-performance, low-power, small-sized embedded SRAM solution
is the key to the success of most complex system-on-chip (SOC) designs
today,” said Sean Peng, CEO of Terasic Technologies, Inc. “Mosys
1T-SRAM(R) technology provides the best embedded memory solution for
SOC/ASIC devices addressing memory-intensive applications such as
imaging compression, networking, and multimedia.”

“To better serve the rapidly growing markets in Taiwan , strong
local technical and sales staff is extremely important,” remarked
Karen Lamar, MoSys’ Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. “Terasic’s
established expertise in Taiwan provides MoSys with an excellent
channel to represent us in one of the most important Asian markets.”


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
80 million chips incorporating 1T-SRAM embedded memory technologies,
demonstrating excellent manufacturability in a wide range of silicon
processes and applications. MoSys is headquartered at 1020 Stewart
Drive, Sunnyvale, California 94085. More information is available on
