ISSI acquires Alliance SRAM chip line

Jul 06, 2006

Integrated Silicon Solution Inc. said Thursday it had acquired the complete SRAM product line produced by Alliance Semiconductor.

The deal gives ISSI the ability to provide long-term support to customers that are already using the Alliance products.

"The acquisition of this product line is consistent with our on going strategy to be the industry's most complete SRAM (Static Random Access Memory) supplier," said ISSI Vice President Sanjiv Asthana. "This new investment complements our continued investment in SRAM research and development."

The Alliance SRAM line included densities from 4 to 36 megabytes and will eventually carry the ISSI label.

ISSI is a fabless semiconductor company that designs and markets circuits for networking, wireless, automotive and consumer electronics customers but has no manufacturing capacity of its own.
