Integrated Silicon Solution Inc. (ISSI) and Spansion have entered a licensing deal that gives ISSI access to Spansion's HyperFlash memory and HyperBus technology portfolio, as well as access to MirrorBit technology in Spansion's foundries. The partnership will expand Spansion's licensing revenue from Spansion's MirrorBit technology, HyperFlash memory and HyperBus interface licensing program.

The agreement gives additional IP rights to ISSI to expand its Flash product portfolio for automotive and industrial customers, as well as access to HyperBus technology that promises to dramatically improve memory performance while reducing pin count and board space. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

ISSI intends to develop multiple HyperRAM and HyperFlash products based on the HyperBus interface. By combining HyperFlash and HyperRAM components on a single bus, chipset providers can reduce controller pin count, accommodate smaller packages and simplify PCB design, resulting in significant cost savings while improving performance. ISSI aims to provide the same high quality and long term support for HyperRAM and HyperFlash customers, similar to its SRAM, DRAM and Flash products.

Samples of the HyperFlash products in both industrial temperature ranges and the automotive temperature ranges from ISSI will be available in the first calendar quarter of 2015.
