SST All-In-OneMemory Wins Editor's Choice Award From Portable Design Magazine

SUNNYVALE, Calif., -  APRIL 8, 2008 — SST (Silicon Storage Technology, Inc., NASDAQ: SSTI), a leader in flash memory technology, is pleased to announce that its managed memory subsystem solution, All-in-OneMemory, is the recipient of an Editor's Choice Award from Portable Design magazine. Awarded annually, Portable Design's Editor's Choice Awards recognize innovative electronic components that make possible the design of leading-edge portable products. The SST88VP1107 All-in-OneMemory chip received the award in the Memory category. This marks the third award or award nomination that SST’s All-in-OneMemory has received since its introduction last year.

"Every year Portable Design singles out for recognition those new products that we consider to be the most innovative, choosing from among the thousands of product releases that cross our desks," said John Donovan, Portable Design's Editor-in-Chief. "This year has seen an outpouring of highly creative, and some potentially disruptive, products and we believe SST's All-in-OneMemory fits this description."

According to Bing Yeh, president and CEO, SST, "We are thrilled to receive this prestigious award from Portable Design. It's yet another indication that our All-in-OneMemory product has struck a chord within the electronics industry."

About All-in-OneMemory

SST All-in-OneMemory offers designers an easy-to-use, single-package memory subsystem with the full benefits of NOR, NAND and RAM memory for code and data storage. Functionally, All-in-OneMemory is the combination of a high-density NOR, a system RAM and a solid-state drive. The high-density NOR consists of two partitions, a typical size NOR for fast and secure boot-up, and a large Pseudo-NOR (PNOR) memory for storing and executing operating system and application code. PNOR is an emulated NOR consisting of a multi-gigabit NAND for nonvolatile storage and a RAM cache for high-speed random access.

All-in-OneMemory products offer several key benefits not found in alternative memory solutions. It uses a simple PSRAM/Burst-NOR bus to interface with the host processor/chipset, which makes the system design easier and helps speed time-to-market. All-in-OneMemory intelligently manages all memory components with a resident 32-bit microcontroller-based advanced memory controller. This enables All-in-OneMemory to offer a large and expandable XIP (Execute-In-Place) code area, instant secure boot-up, memory demand-paging, NAND flash management, and an industry standard ATA data storage protocol on the PSRAM/Burst-NOR bus.

To further reduce system complexity and lower overall system cost, All-in-OneMemory is housed in a small-footprint BGA package. SST All-in-OneMemory is designed for a wide range of embedded system applications, including multimedia-enabled cell phones, portable media players, digital still/video cameras, personal navigation devices, set-top boxes, IPTVs, gaming devices, medical equipment and industrial systems.
