AgigA Tech to Present on Data Integrity and Enterprise Backup at Advanced Energy Storage 2010 Conference in San Diego

Last Updated: October 12, 2010

Lane Hauck, Member of Technical Staff for AgigA Tech, Will Present On Wednesday, October 13 at 1:30 p.m.

POWAY, Calif., October 12, 2010 – AgigA Tech Inc., a subsidiary of Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY), today announced that Lane Hauck, a member of its Technical Staff, will present in a panel discussion entitled “Data Integrity and Enterprise Backup” at the Advanced Energy Storage 2010 Conference in San Diego this week. The session will take place at 1:30 p.m. local time on Wednesday, October 13. Speakers from Texas Instruments and the Tecate Group will also appear on the panel.

AgigA Tech will also demonstrate at the conference its recently introduced DDR3 AGIGARAM™ non-volatile memory systems, the industry’s highest speed and highest density solutions available.

AGIGARAM is a new class of non-volatile memory developed to meet the need for higher-density, higher-performance memory for enterprise-class applications. AGIGARAM integrates NAND Flash, DRAM and an ultracapacitor power source into an innovative memory subsystem that can deliver unlimited read/write performance at the fastest DRAM speeds, while also safely backing up all data when power is interrupted. When used as a write cache in enterprise storage equipment, AGIGARAM provides a performance-boosting building block while guarding against power failures and consequent loss of critical data. In addition, the battery-free power source, PowerGEM™, eliminates the many headaches associated with batteries, such as hazardous material disposal, short operating life, extensive maintenance and a high cost of ownership. The entire AGIGARAM Non-Volatile System (NVS) implements the AGIGASAFE™ control protocol, a simple-to-use host-controlled I2C programming interface developed by AgigA Tech that ensures safe, reliable, secure operation at the system level. This protocol allows fine control over internal system functions such as managing the NAND Flash while providing precise health monitoring and tracking. The complex system-readiness system has also been reduced to a single “Good To Go” (or GTG) signal. For more information on AgigA Tech products visit
