Cypress Reports Third-Quarter 2012 Results

+ Pantech, the number two cell phone provider in Korea, selected the Gen4 TrueTouch touchscreen controller for its flagship Vega R3 smartphone.

+ Cypress introduced the PSoC Creator™ 2.1 Integrated Design Environment (IDE) for its PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 programmable system-on-chip families. Creator 2.1 enables the concurrent hardware and software design of PSoC systems. The software release includes more than 100 new features and enhancements that improve system performance and ease of use.

+ Cypress’s PSoC ® MFi (Made for iPod | iPhone | iPad) digital audio solution earned design wins with TEAC Corp. and Griffin Technology. Cypress also introduced the CY8CKIT-033 PSoC 3 MFi Digital Audio Development Kit, which streamlines customer development of MFi music products. The PSoC MFi solution turns iPhones, iPads, and iPods into portable audio recorders capable of delivering studio-quality streaming audio.

+ Cypress continued to ramp its EZ-USB ® FX3™ programmable USB 3.0 peripheral controller, announcing design wins with Himax Imaging, a leading CMOS image sensor manufacturer, and YUAN, a leading Taiwanese audio/video equipment manufacturer. The new USB 3.0 standard provides 5-Gbps bandwidth and eliminates the need for compression when transferring HD video to deliver sharp, bit-perfect HD images in small-form-factor HD video products.

+ Cypress added Tokyo Electron Devices (TED) as a distribution partner in Japan. TED, which pioneered the distribution of programmable devices in Japan, has established sales networks in the industrial, communications, and consumer markets. The agreement covers the entire Cypress product line, including PSoC devices, touch-sensing solutions, SRAMs, and USB controllers.

+ Cypress introduced PRoC™-UI (Programmable Radio-on-Chip—User Interface) which combines a low-power, 2.4-GHz RF radio link with Cypress’s CapSense and TrueTouch technologies to enable new classes of Human Interface Devices (HIDs), such as touch mice, remote controls with trackpads, and wireless trackpads.

+ Cypress and Ramtron International Corp. (NASDAQ: RMTR) entered into a definitive merger agreement under which Cypress will acquire all outstanding stock of Ramtron for $3.10 per share in cash. Ramtron’s F-RAM products complement Cypress’s nonvolatile static random access memory (nvSRAM) portfolio, opening up new markets and applications for Cypress. The merger offers Ramtron scale advantages and helps to streamline its business operations. On October 10, 2012, we completed the tender offer and took control of Ramtron.
