SAN JOSE, California, May 14, 2002

hynix Semiconductor Inc., a leading semiconductor memory manufacturer and premier supplier of high-performance DRAM products, today disclosed that it has discovered counterfeit copies of its 128-Megabyte 133-MHz SDRAM module.

The fraudulent modules, packaged in Taiwan with a counterfeit hynix label, are being distributed in China, Taiwan and Europe. Based on hynix’s initial investigation, it appears that the counterfeit parts contain low-grade die from various memory manufacturers and are being sold into the open market as the hynix brand.

hynix has achieved worldwide brand recognition due to the highest quality standards, and as a result, is very concerned and is warning all customers and buyers to proceed with caution. Product purchases should only be through authorized distribution channels to avoid obtaining unqualified counterfeit parts.
