Seoul, Korea, September 1, 2003

Today, hynix Semiconductors Inc., announced successful validation of its Pseudo SRAM for next-generation mobile applications from multiple customers.

As a result, hynix is expecting a significant increase in its Pseudo SRAM revenue for the remainder of this year and projects $100M in Pseudo SRAM sales for 2004.

hynix is currently mass-producing its16M and 32M Pseudo SRAM devices using its .15-micron process technology. The firm expects to begin mass production of its 64M-density device by first quarter of next year.

Pseudostatic RAM architecture utilizes a single-transistor structure rather than six-transistors. This allows mobile phone makers to add more features to their phones yet maintain system speed, a compact form and competitive pricing. The hynix Pseudo SRAMs support supply and I/O voltages ranging from 1.8 to 3.0 volts, 75-ns or 85-ns access times and can go as low as 2-microamps in deep power down mode. These features allow for wide adoption in next generation mobile applications by boosting performance, reducing power consumption and extending battery life. In addition to a leading position in the Pseudo SRAM market, hynix has already begun supplying low-power DRAMs for adoption in next-generation mobile application and will begin mass production of its NAND Flash by the first quarter of next year. hynix aims to be a leading global total solution provider for the mobile memory market.
