SAN JOSE, Calif. -- January 24, 2013

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY), the market leader in touch-sensing,
today announced that Fujitsu Limited has selected the TrueTouch^® Gen4
touchscreen solution from Cypress to implement the touchscreen in the new
ArrowsVF-04E smartphone available from NTT DOCOMO. The new Fujitsu phone,
which uses the Android operating systems and operates on the 4G LTE network,
leverages the Gen4 solution’s leading signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) to deliver
highly responsive and accurate multitouch performance in any operating
environment. Gen4 also provides industry-leading waterproofing capability,
enabling accurate touch input and finger tracking in the presence of moisture
from rain, condensation, or sweat.

The Fujitsu Arrows V F-04E has a quad-core CPU and 2 GB of RAM to provide the
power to process information at 4G LTE speeds of up to 100 Mbps. The phone
features a dynamic 4.7-inch HD display that offers precise tracking of up to
ten fingers with the Gen4 controller. The TrueTouch solution also provides a
Charger Armor™ feature that enables mobile phones to operate in the presence
of very noisy chargers. The Gen4 family also offers features that only
TrueTouch can deliver, such as built-in waterproofing functionality that
allows the product to meet IP-67 standards without extra sealants or shield
layers.

“The combination of Fujitsu’s leading-edge features and Cypress’s robust
touchscreen solutions continues to result in best-in-class smartphones,” said
Cathal Phelan, Executive Vice President of the Consumer and Computation
Division at Cypress. “The solid relationship that Cypress has with Fujitsu is
a testament to the industry-leading flexibility, feature set and performance
of our TrueTouch touchscreen solution.”

“Fujitsu continues their strong tradition of innovation with this new
feature-rich Arrows smartphone,” said Kazuyoshi Yamada, vice president of
Japan Sales for Cypress. “Our team of engineers in Japan has worked closely
with Fujitsu to help them develop touchscreen interfaces that add outstanding
usability to their phones.”
