MoSys Inks Agreement With SMIC to Provide High-Density 1T-FLASH Memory IP

Leading Chinese Foundry to Support MoSys' 1T-FLASH Technology

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MoSys, Inc. (Nasdaq: MOSY), the industry's leading provider of high-density system-on-chip (SoC) embedded memory intellectual property (IP) solutions, announced today that it has extended its partnership with China's leading foundry, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC) (NYSE: SMI), to include MoSys' new high-density embedded flash memory IP.

Under the terms of the agreement, the companies are collaborating on the establishment of MoSys' 1T-FLASH on SMIC's manufacturing processes. MoSys' 1T-FLASH is an extremely high density NOR flash replacement and is being implemented on SMIC's pure logic CMOS processes. No additional process masks or materials are required.

MoSys' 1T-FLASH will offer developers of mobile devices, such as cellular phones, and developers of embedded microcontrollers significant cost advantages over current-generation solutions.

"Together with SMIC, we can offer a very compelling solution for SoC designers who want to integrate large amounts of high-performance flash memory," said Chet Silvestri, president and CEO of MoSys.
