MoSys and Northwest Logic Offer Integrated PCI Express and DDR3 Solutions

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 14, 2010 — MoSys, Inc. [NASDAQ: MOSY], a leading provider of differentiated, high-density memory and high-speed interface (I/O) intellectual property (IP), and Northwest Logic, a leading semiconductor IP provider, offer integrated PCI Express 2.0® and DDR3 solutions.

The PCI Express 2.0 solution combines MoSys’ PHY for PCI Express 2.0 and Northwest Logic’s full-featured Expresso 2.0 Core, DMA Back-End Core, DMA Driver and Expresso GUI to provide a complete, pre‐packaged PCI Express 2.0 solution. The DDR3 solution combines MoSys’ DDR3 PHY and Northwest Logic’s high‐performance DDR3 SDRAM Controller Core and add‐on cores (AXI/AHB, Multi-Port, Reorder, etc.). These solutions are available separately or as a single, fully integrated solution.

Northwest Logic’s high performance, easy‐to‐use controller solutions makes them a strong partner for MoSys. Our partnership demonstrates our commitment to providing customers with a complete, integrated PCI Express 2.0 and DDR3 solutions,” said David DeMaria, Vice President of Business Operations at MoSys. “Our customers receive a proven, validated and comprehensive solution that incorporates best-in-class technology that only expert IP providers like MoSys and Northwest Logic can offer.”

“This combined controller + PHY solution is optimized for high‐performance across a broad range of process technologies. In addition, MoSys and Northwest Logic provide both customization and integration services to ensure customers are delivered a solution which meets their exact requirements,” said Brian Daellenbach, President of Northwest Logic.

These solutions, along with high quality documentation, comprehensive verification suites and expert technical support enable SoC designers to quickly get their products to market with minimal cost and risk.
