Licenses 1T-SRAM(R) Technology for the Advanced 90nm Process Generation for Products Aimed for Integration Into Advanced Imaging Solutions
SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct. 26, 2006–MoSys, Inc.
(NASDAQ:MOSY), the industry’s leading provider of high-density
system-on-chip (SoC) embedded memory solutions announced today that
Pixim, Inc. has extended the license of MoSys’ 1T-SRAM high-density
embedded memory technology to include products manufactured at 90
nanometer (nm) silicon process geometry. Pixim has been a licensee of
MoSys’ technology since 2004, and has incorporated 1T-SRAM memory
macros into Pixim’s patented Digital Pixel System(R) (DPS) chip sets
targeting the fast-growing video security applications.
“As Pixim looked to enhance existing product lines and move into
new digital imaging market segments, having access to MoSys 1T-SRAM
products at the most advanced manufacturing processes stood out as a
natural choice,” commented Joe Montalbo, President and Chief Executive
Officer at Pixim, Inc. “These high density memories, with their
low-power consumption and flexible functionality will enable Pixim to
leverage its core DPS technology and drive our expansion in areas such
as video surveillance and automotive imaging, where we see tremendous
potential for growth.”
“MoSys’ 1T-SRAM is the preferred high-density embedded memory
technology for video and imaging applications and our successful
partnership with Pixim is clear evidence of that,” said Chet
Silvestri, Chief Executive Officer of MoSys. “Moreover, MoSys strongly
believes that by expanding access to 1T-SRAM products at 90nm
technology Pixim can impact the digital imaging industry by offering
optimized solutions with substantially higher-quality and significant

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
