MOSAID to Unveil Enhanced Flash Architecture for Solid State Drives at Flash Memory Summit 2008

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jul 29, 2008 -- MOSAID Technologies Inc. (TSX: MSD) today announced that it is displaying its enhanced HyperLink NAND (HLNAND™) Flash architecture, demonstrating a new emulation platform, and presenting two technical papers at the Flash Memory Summit ( http://www.flashmemorysummit.com/), August 12-14, 2008 in Santa Clara, California. Visit MOSAID at booth 102.

"Industry experts agree that Solid State Drive (SSD) is the next big Flash application. But laptops with first-generation SSDs are being returned to vendors at very high rates because they are not delivering the promised performance boost," said Jin-Ki Kim, Vice President, Research and Development, MOSAID. "What's missing - and what's required - is a new memory hierarchy for enhanced user experience."

MOSAID's HLNAND™ Flash is a new architecture and interface for high-performance Flash memory. This unique memory interface dramatically improves the performance of mass storage applications, including SSDs. HLNAND™ delivers sustained input/output (I/O) bandwidths ten times higher than conventional Flash memory.

HLNAND™ utilizes MOSAID's HyperLink interface to achieve high performance while maintaining low cost. HyperLink is a serial point-to-point ring topology that achieves higher per pin bandwidth and accommodates more devices on a single channel than heavily loaded parallel bus architectures. "As a result, systems employing HLNAND™ achieve higher performance, lower power, and reduced controller pin count compared to legacy NAND interfaces," said Kim.

An HLNAND™ hardware emulation platform for system development and benchmarking will be demonstrated at the Flash Memory Summit. MOSAID is also presenting two technical papers, titled: "HLNAND™ - A New Standard for High Performance Flash Memory," and "Accelerating SSD Performance with HLNAND™."

MOSAID licenses HLNAND™ technology to semiconductor and system vendors. Current development partners include INDILINX and PHISON.
