Mosaid Technologies Inc. has renewed signed a seven-year, royalty bearing patent portfolio license agreement with Taiwan's Winbond Electronics Corp. Financial details of the license are confidential.

The new agreement, which begins on Jan. 1, 2008, following the Dec. 31, 2007 expiration of its current five-year deal, grants Winbond a license under Mosaid's patents for all commodity and embedded DRAM, as well as Pseudostatic RAM.

"This new agreement with Winbond is an important milestone in our semiconductor licensing program," said John Lindgren, president and CEO, Mosaid. "In 2003, Winbond was the first company to sign a fixed term, running royalty agreement with Mosaid, and today it has become the first company to sign a second term license with us. Going forward, I am very confident that Mosaid's other term licensees will also see the value in signing new licenses to Mosaid's growing patent portfolio at the end of their current term agreements."

Mosaid has signed patent portfolio license agreements with 16 companies since January 1999, and is currently in communication with more than 50 companies with respect to licensing its semiconductor and wireless/wireline patents.
