AgigA Tech Wins CONNECT Most Innovative Product Award
Poway, Calif., 2010 年 12 月 21 日- AgigA Tech Inc., a subsidiary of Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY), today announced that its AGIGARAM™ Non-Volatile System (NVS) has been named the Most Innovative New Product of 2010 in the Hardware and General Technology category at the 23rd CONNECT Awards. CONNECT is a San Diego-based nonprofit dedicated to creating and sustaining innovative technology. The Most Innovative Product Award winners were selected from more than 100 entries within eight categories, a record number.
The AGIGARAM product family merges NAND flash, DRAM and a battery-free ultracapacitor power source into a highly reliable non-volatile memory system. When used as a write cache in enterprise-class applications, AGIGARAM provides a performance-boosting building block while guarding against power failures and data loss. The entire AGIGARAM NVS implements the AGIGASAFE™ control protocol, a simple-to-use host-controlled I2C programming interface that ensures safe, reliable, secure operation at the system level. This protocol allows fine control over internal functions such as managing the NAND flash while precisely monitoring and tracking the health of the system.
For more than 20 years, CONNECT’s MIP Awards have served as a benchmark for predicting the most successful new products of San Diego companies. More than 800 of the city’s top executives, entrepreneurs and academics attended the ceremony last week at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines Hotel.
“We’re proud to receive this award,” said Ron Sartore, CEO of AgigA Tech. “We expect to enable a number of new systems to safeguard critical data with the high performance, environmentally-friendly AGIGARAM product.”
CONNECT is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating and sustaining the growth of innovative technology and life science businesses in San Diego. Since 1985, CONNECT has assisted in the formation and development of over 2,000 companies and is widely regarded as the world's most successful regional program linking inventors and entrepreneurs with the resources they need for success. CONNECT focuses on research institution support, business creation and development, entrepreneurial learning, access to capital, public policy advocacy, awards, recognition and networking. There are more than 40 organizations in 18 countries that have adopted the CONNECT model, including New York City, the UK, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Australia and India.
