Silicon Storage Technology Inc. (SST) has expanded its existing technology licensing agreement with Toshiba Corp. to include finer process geometries of SST's SuperFlash technology. Under terms of the agreement, Toshiba will license and embed SST's 0.35?m SuperFlash technology into its 8bit and 16bit microcontrollers for use in such high-volume applications as portable digital audio devices, TV receiver and PDAs. In return, SST will receive licensing fees and royalties from Toshiba on sales of microcontrollers (MCUs) that integrate SuperFlash technology.

The previous technology licensing agreement between SST and Toshiba was signed in September 2003 and covered SST's 0.5?m SuperFlash technology. By fiscal year 2005, Toshiba plans to extend the use of the 0.5?m SuperFlash technology to more than 20 of its MCUs for such applications as audio and automotive equipment and home appliances.
