MSR720 Device Delivers SRAM Performance with Dramatically Higher Capacity and
                                 Access Rate

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- December 12, 2013

MoSys (NASDAQ:MOSY), a leader in semiconductor solutions that enable fast,
intelligent data access for network and communications systems, today
announced sample availability of its Bandwidth Engine® 2 – Access device,
delivering random access performance with more than four times the capacity
and more than twice the access performance of any SRAM on the market today.
The device is based on an architecture of four 144 Megabit (Mbit) partitions,
each running at 375MHz with true dual-port, random access capability. The
partitions are addressed as a single-bank to enable a dramatic increase in
processing rate capability.

The Bandwidth Engine family of ICs is optimized for high-performance
networking equipment requiring aggregate bandwidth of 40G, 100G, 400G or
higher, bringing fast, intelligent memory access to packet and data processing
applications. Any application requiring true random access using traditional
SRAM devices is limited to densities of 144 Mbits. The MoSys® MSR720 breaks
through this barrier by delivering 576 Mbit capacity and up to 4.5 billion
accesses per second, at least twice the access rate of a traditional SRAM. The
dual-ported partitions rely on address compare and data bypass to ensure fully
coherent data under any access condition. With its ability to simultaneously
read and write to a specific memory location, the MSR720 delivers substantial
performance and efficiency advantages over the alternatives.

The unique device architecture and serial interface of the MSR720 maintains
full data coherency, high command efficiency and simplified scheduling,
resulting in a performance of up to 4.5 GigaAccesses per second. The high
access rates and reduced effective cycle time of the MSR720 are well-suited to
the requirements of state memory and queuing applications, where repeat access
of the same address is needed.

“Our second generation Bandwidth Engine architecture supports purpose-built
variants to optimize specific applications and access types," stated John
Monson, Vice President of Marketing for MoSys. "The MSR720 is intended to
integrate the random access capabilities of traditional SRAM and relieve
constraints in capacity and performance, together dramatically reducing board
area, power, economics and pin count."

The Bandwidth Engine family of ICs is designed, built and qualified for
high-reliability, carrier-grade applications and utilizes a high-performance
SerDes-based GigaChip™ Interface which has proven, robust compatibility with
ASICs and FPGAs from Altera and Xilinx. The MSR720 is a member of the second
generation family of Bandwidth Engine devices, which also includes the MSR620
device optimized for buffer applications and the MSR820 device with integrated
macro functions to support on-chip functions, such as statistics and metering.
MoSys is now accepting sample and preproduction orders for the MSR720, MSR620
and MSR820 devices. For information about pricing and availability, contact a
