SAN JOSE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 21, 2020 / MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ:MOSY), a provider of semiconductor and IP solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for Cloud, networking, security and communications systems, today announced a new sample program with Digi-Key Electronics. As one of the world's leading electronic component distributors, Digi-Key can now provide samples of MoSys® QUAZAR semiconductor products to qualified customers.

The new QUAZAR QPR family of low-cost, Quad Partition Rate SRAM Memory ICs are designed to:

  • Accelerate Intel and Xilinx FPGA designs
  • Offer QDR SRAM-level performance
  • Replace 4-8 QDR SRAMs with a single device
  • Provide 576Mb and 1Gb of memory
  • Selected devices cost less than $200 in volume quantities

For a free sample: SAMPLE REQUEST

MoSys QUAZAR devices achieve a cost point previously not attainable with memories at these speeds and densities. MoSys achieves this by utilizing its 1T memory cell and advanced memory architectures. The company is continuing to expand its family of unique, multi-partitioned memories, which previously included Bandwidth Engine (BE2/3 and PHE) devices and, now, the new QUAZAR devices. In support of the IC products, MoSys offers an RTL memory controller that presents an SRAM-like interface to simplify the design effort.

With this expanded sample program, MoSys extends its product offerings through Digi-Key to include MoSys's MSQ620AJC288-12, MSQ820AJC288-12, MSQ630AGE-1512 and MSQ830AGE-1512. These IC solutions are part of MoSys Accelerator Engine memory IC offerings focused on providing high density (576Mb or 1Gb) memory capacity. MoSys can match the speed and memory capacity of 4-8 high speed QDR or Sync SRAMs devices with a single device at a lower cost. MoSys's solutions work with high-speed FPGAs to improve performance while reducing system level power, board real estate, pin count and time to market and most important, cost.

These solutions offer extremely cost-effective options for a wide variety of FPGA-based applications, eliminating bottlenecks to deliver speed and intelligence for applications ranging from 5G networks, security searching, line cards, NICs to data acquisition, video and test systems along with other data-driven areas such as Graph Memory Processing

"We are pleased to expand our relationship with Digi-Key to include our new QUAZAR product line," noted MoSys President and CEO, Dan Lewis. "These solutions offer high performance for a wide variety of FPGA-based applications, from 5G to AI/IoT, eliminating bottlenecks to deliver speed and intelligence making them ideal for Digi-Key's diverse and growing set of customers."

"MoSys's QUAZAR family of solutions achieve a cost point previously unachievable with memories at these speeds and capacity," said David Stein, Vice President of Global Supplier Management, Digi-Key. "The company has expanded its family of unique, multi-partitioned memories, which include Bandwidth Engine® (BE2/3 and PHE) devices and, now, the new QUAZAR devices and we are thrilled to be able to offer these advanced, cost effective solutions to our customers."
