Spansion Licenses Discretix CryptoFlash to Expand its Secure Memory Solutions

Our client, Discretix, continues to gain more design wins.

Spansion Inc. (Nasdaq: SPSN), the world’s largest pure play provider of
Flash memory solutions, today announced it has licensed our client’s
CryptoFlash(TM) security technology to enable secure Flash memory
solutions. This marks the third agreement Spansion has recently inked
to create innovative solutions that add security capabilities to the
company’s MirrorBit(TM) Flash memory for future products.

"Spansion’s
ability to add more security features to our products demonstrates our
commitment to deliver customers added value in Flash memory solutions,"
said George Minassian, vice president of strategic planning and systems
engineering, Wireless Solutions Division, Spansion. "The combination of
Discretix’s advanced security technology and cryptographic services
with Spansion’s scalable MirrorBit technology, system integration
capabilities and security expertise, will create more secure memory
solutions to meet a range of customer requirements in the wireless
market."

The agreement with Discretix, in combination with
Spansion’s scalable MirrorBit technology, provides the building blocks
to address the growing need for improved handset security. Spansion
plans to leverage Discretix’s CryptoFlash security technology to
deliver highly differentiated Flash memory solutions through its
Logic-on-Flash capabilities, which involve joint collaboration and
co-development with strategic partners.

"Discretix believes
Flash memory is a critical component to secure within electronic
devices," said Edo Ganot, executive vice president of sales and
business development, Discretix. "Spansion’s logic-friendly and
cost-effective MirrorBit technology is a natural fit with Discretix’s
embedded security to provide secure solutions for end users,
enterprises and mobile operators."

Spansion’s proprietary
MirrorBit technology delivers a scalable family of NOR and ORNAND(TM)
products to meet a range of customer requirements in wireless and
embedded markets.

"Mobile commerce and digital content require
significantly improved handset security, compared to what is available
on the market today," said Roger Entner, vice president of wireless
telecommunications at Ovum. "Service theft and fraud are a growing
issue for mobile device owners and operators who are looking for
improved solutions to secure important financial, enterprise and
personal content on their handsets."
