MoSys Ships its Bandwidth Engine IC for

MoSys has begun shipping its first "Bandwidth Engine" integrated circuit (IC) devices, which integrate MoSys' 1T-SRAM high-density embedded memory with its 10.3 Gbps SerDes interface (I/O) technology and an arithmetic logic unit (ALU).
MoSys said its Bandwidth Engine enables up to four times the throughput, two to four times the density, approximately 40 percent lower system power and a system cost savings of up to 50 percent, compared with today's available alternative system memory solutions.

"In February 2010, we announced our intent to bring to market a revolutionary new networking memory chip architected for use in 40Gbps/100Gbps Gigabit Ethernet routers. In July 2010, we announced the tape-out of Bandwidth Engine, and today I am pleased to announce that we met our goal of sampling by year end 2010," said Len Perham, President and CEO of MoSys. "This key achievement is a testament to the magnificent execution of our team. Customer and partner interest in Bandwidth Engine continues to be remarkably strong, and we are very excited about the substantial opportunity for the Bandwidth Engine family of ICs to provide a strong foundation for long-term growth and value creation at MoSys."
