GSI Technology, Inc. operates as a fabless semiconductor company. The company develops and markets high performance memory products, including static random access memories (SRAMs) that operate at speeds of approximately 10 nanoseconds (very fast SRAMs) and low latency dynamic random access memories (DRAMs) (LLDRAMs) that are incorporated primarily in high-performance networking and telecommunications equipment, such as routers, switches, wide area network infrastructure equipment, wireless base stations, and network access equipment. In addition, the company serves the ongoing needs of the military, industrial, test and measurement equipment, automotive and medical markets for high-performance SRAMs. It sells its products to major original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers, including Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco Systems, and Huawei Technologies. Products The company specializes in high performance memory products featuring very high transaction rates, high density, low latency, high bandwidth, fast clock access times and low power consumption. The company offers approximately 30 families of SRAMs, 2 families of LLDRAMs, and 1 family of Bandwidth Engine products. These basic product configurations are the basis for approximately 15,000 individual products that incorporate various performance specifications and optional features. The company’s products could be found in a range of networking and telecommunications equipment, including core routers, multi-service access routers, universal gateways, enterprise edge routers, service provider edge routers, optical edge routers, fast Ethernet switches and wireless base stations. The company also sells its products to OEMs that manufacture products for military applications, such as radar and guidance systems; for professional audio applications, such as sound mixing systems; for test and measurement applications, such as high-speed testers; for automotive applications, such as smart cruise control; and for medical applications, such as ultrasound and CAT scan equipment. Synchronous SRAM Products Synchronous SRAMs are controlled by timing signals, referred to as clocks, which make them easier to use than older style asynchronous SRAMs with similar latency characteristics in applications requiring high bandwidth data transfers. Synchronous SRAMs that employ double data rate interface protocols could transfer data at much higher bandwidth than both single data rate and asynchronous SRAMs. The company supplies synchronous SRAMs that could cycle at operating frequencies approximately 725 megahertz (MHz), and expects to introduce products with operating frequencies of approximately 1,333 MHz later in 2015. BurstRAM and NBT SRAMs: The company offers BurstRAMs and No Bus Turnaround (NBT) SRAMs that implement a single data rate bus protocol. BurstRAMs are developed for microprocessor cache applications. They are used in applications where large amounts of data are read or written in single sessions, or bursts. NBT SRAMs are a variation on the BurstRAM theme and are developed to address the needs of moderate performance networking applications. NBT SRAMs feature a single data rate bus protocol designed to minimize or eliminate wasted data transfer time slots on the bus when BurstRAMs switch from read to write operations. Both families of products could perform burst data transfers or single cycle transfers at the discretion of the user. The company’s BurstRAMs and NBT SRAMs are offered in both pipeline and flow-through modes. Flow-through SRAMs allow the shortest latency. Pipelined SRAMs break the access into discrete clock-controlled steps, allowing new access commands to be accepted while an access is already in progress. The company’s BurstRAM and NBT SRAM products incorporate various features that reduce its OEM customers' cost of ownership and increase their design flexibility, including a JTAG test port and the company’s FLXDrive feature, which allows system designers to optimize signal integrity for a given application. The company offers BurstRAMs and NBT SRAMs with storage densities of approximately 144 megabits with clock frequency of approximately 3
