  • Completed the quarter with cash and investments of $74.6 million
  • Secured two new license agreements for Dual-Port Display IC (DDI) embedded memory macros

Management Commentary

During the second quarter, we recorded sequential growth in both licensing and royalties, which resulted in a sequential increase in total revenue, stated Len Perham, MoSys President and Chief Executive Officer. We secured two additional license agreements with new customers for our DDI technology, which enables mobile handset manufacturers to cost effectively meet the design challenges of todays advanced handsets requiring both high resolution displays and multimedia functionality. Additionally, LG Electronics, a licensee of our DDI technology, began production shipments late in the first quarter.

Mr. Perham continued, With regard to our embedded flash technology, we expect to complete full foundry certification of our 1T-FLASH at the 130 nanometer process node. We continue to engage with our foundry partners and advanced integrated circuit SoC manufacturers for 1T-FLASH at the advanced 90 and 65 nanometer process nodes. Looking at our analog mixed signal IP, we demonstrated our front end Blu-Ray SoC IP in silicon to customers who are looking for comprehensive mixed signal functionality with all-format support in a single IP. The feedback we have received from these demonstrations has been encouraging, and we are in various levels of discussion with customers for applications in the home entertainment market. Also, we recently received our first order for our Serial ATA (SATA) Physical Layer (PHY) IP. This mixed signal IP is highly robust and can easily be integrated into a range of solutions targeted at the home entertainment, storage and PC markets.

Mr. Perham concluded, Going forward, we will continue to execute on our product development roadmap, align ourselves more closely with our foundry partners, increase our sales presence and secure new licensees, while maintaining strong relationships with our existing customer base.
