SAN JOSE, Calif., October 18, 2004 - Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) today announced that its chief technical officer Mark Ross will participate in the Network System Design Conference's (NSDC's) CTO Roundtable, to be held at the Parkside Hall in San Jose, Calif., on Tuesday, October 19 at 6:00 p.m.

Ross will address key network search engine (NSE) trends and design issues, ranging from standards compliance to hardware design and software programmability. He will also discuss the implications of Cypress's industry-leading 90-nm process technology on NSE design.

A graduate of Stanford University with a masters degree in Electrical Engineering, Ross is a recognized NSE pioneer who led the development and use of ternary content-addressable memory (TCAMs) in communications systems.   He is credited with developing the world's first Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) network interface controller (NIC) and single-chip multi-channel GbE switch.   Prior to joining Cypress, Ross led the development of communications and computation products that contributed more than $1 billion in revenue at both Cisco Systems and Sun Microsystems.

Cypress is the only company to offer both TCAM-based NSEs as well as algorithmic NSEs.   This combination of search technologies provides customers a cost-optimized search solution with the scalability to address current and future performance requirements. Cypress also enables faster time-to-market and reduced development costs with its Cynapse(TM) Software Platform.

Moderated by Principal Analyst Linley Gwennap of The Linley Group, the NSDC panel discussion will also include Harish Devanagondi from Greenfield Networks, Russell Dietz from Hifn, Dave Fotland from Ubicom and Dave Mothersole from Motorola's semiconductor spinoff Freescale.
