Ramtron to Demonstrate MaxArias Wireless Memory at Embedded Systems Conference -- Silicon Valley 2010

Ramtron to Showcase Gen2 High-Memory Wireless ICs at Booth #2201

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - April 26, 2010) -  Ramtron International Corporation (NASDAQ: RMTR), the leading developer and supplier of ferroelectric-based low power memory and integrated semiconductor products, today announced that it will feature its MaxArias™ wireless memory this week during the Embedded Systems Conference -- Silicon Valley, at booth #2201. The conference and expo will be held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, from April 26 through 29.

During the exhibition, Ramtron will demonstrate its novel wireless memory technology from its MaxArias product line. Ramtron MaxArias products combine the low power, high speed, and high endurance features of Ramtron's nonvolatile F-RAM memory technology with industry standard Gen2 RFID wireless access. The MaxArias family of products enables system engineers to extend the range and memory capability of their systems by allowing greater amounts of information to be transmitted, captured, and stored on high-performance RF-enabled transponder integrated circuits.

Ramtron's MaxArias wireless memory is ideal for applications such as high-value asset tracking, pharmaceutical tracking, manufacturing and maintenance history collection, and smart utility metering, among many others.

About MaxArias Wireless Memory Solutions
