MoSys and PLDA Partner to Deliver Complete PCI Express 2.0 and 3.0 IP Solutions

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 18, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOSY), a leading provider of differentiated, high-density memory and high-speed interface (I/O) intellectual property (IP), and PLDA, the leader in high speed bus IP, have partnered to deliver complete PCI Express 2.0 and 3.0 PHY and controller IP solutions. The first integrated offering will combine MoSys' PCI Express 2.0 PHY with PLDA's XpressRich2 controller. The companies are also working together to provide an integrated PCI Express 3.0 solution.

PCI Express is one of the most ubiquitous bus interface protocols. By teaming up to provide proven interoperability, application notes and direct engineering assistance, MoSys and PLDA will help SoC designers speed time-to-market and reduce cost and risks when integrating PCI Express IP. In addition to strong technical collaboration, MoSys and PLDA will also partner to jointly market their new, integrated PCI Express IP solutions.

"Our customers are clearly looking for guaranteed integration between our world-class PCI Express PHYs and controllers," said David DeMaria, Vice President of Business Operations at MoSys. "PLDA is one of the pioneers in providing PCI Express controller solutions, and a strong partner for MoSys. We are delighted to be working with PLDA."
