SAN JOSE -- Cypress Semiconductor Corp. here today announced that it has reached an agreement with Hyundai MicroElectronics under which Hyundai will manufacture a percentage of Cypress' Universal Serial Bus (USB) products.
The agreement is effective immediately, with Hyundai MicroElectronics delivering to Cypress finished chips produced in 0.50- and 0.35-micron technologies.
Hyundai MicroElectronics, the semiconductor group of Hyundai Electronics Industries of South Korea, previously was the foundry for Anchor Chips Inc., a designer of USB products and bus solutions that Cypress acquired last May . Cypress has been honing its play in USB -- a plug-and-play interface standard used to connect PCs with their peripherals -- and recently passing the 35-million-unit mark in shipments, making it the market leader. Intel is also licensing high-performance USB designs and development tools from Intel Corp. .
"This agreement will help Cypress to continue to meet the rapidly increasing demand for our products, cementing our leadership position in the USB market by providing a second manufacturing source to our proprietary facilities," said Cathal Phelan, Cypress' vice president of interface products. "Hyundai MicroElectronics has proven to be a reliable source for high-quality products at competitive prices and is a welcome addition to our manufacturing capabilities."
Added Daniel D. Lee, head of Hyundai Electronics America's System IC Division, "This agreement further demonstrates the confidence our customers have regarding the versatility and strength of our foundry services and technology."
