Cypress's Trung Tran Named Vice-Chairman of JEDEC's Board of Directors

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- December 6, 2005 - Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) today announced that Trung Tran, the company's applications department manager for PC Clocks, has been named vice-chairman at large of JEDEC's Board of Directors. In his new position, Tran will assist the chairman and the board on decisions that affect the growth, membership, and operation of JEDEC.

The JEDEC Solid State Technology Association is the semiconductor engineering standardization body of the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA), a trade association that represents all areas of the electronics industry. The organization is instrumental in defining chip standards that ensure interoperability between multiple vendors, easing the design process and reducing costs for engineers.

Tran joined Cypress in 2001, and has managed applications for communications chips, programmable logic, specialty memories, and timing technology. Prior to joining Cypress, he worked at Hewlett-Packard on enterprise servers, and served with the United States Air Force on projects involving cryptographic chips and multilevel, secure global networks. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in computer engineering from the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he won the Rome Labs Computer Engineering Excellence Award as the top student in his major.

"Cypress has supported and participated in JEDEC committees for many years, and we value JEDEC's work very highly," said Tran. "I am looking forward to advancing JEDEC's role in a number of areas, including important standards that will have a major impact on the face of technology in the coming years."

JEDEC was originally created in 1960 as a joint activity between EIA and NEMA to cover the standardization of discrete semiconductor devices, and later expanded in 1970 to include integrated circuits.  Today, almost 2400 participants, appointed by some 270 companies, work together in 50 JEDEC committees to meet the needs of every segment of the industry, manufacturers and consumers alike.
