Kilopass Partners With BAE Sales Inc. and QoS, Inc.

Expands U.S. Sales Channel in Northern California, Mid-Atlantic to Support Growing Demand

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - November 29, 2010) - Kilopass Technology Inc., a leading provider of semiconductor logic non-volatile memory (NVM) intellectual property (IP), today announced its partnership with manufacturers' representative firms, BAE Sales Inc. and QoS.

Effective immediately, BAE Sales Inc. will support Kilopass customers in Silicon Valley and Northern California, while QoS will support customers in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States.

Since 2009, Kilopass has experienced steady business growth and demand for XPM™ and Gusto™ NVM products. The addition of BAE Sales Inc. and QoS to Kilopass' global sales network will strengthen Kilopass' visibility in these regions and increase access to customers of Kilopass' NVM IP solutions.

In addition, Kilopass will expand its direct sales force to include representatives in the Northwest, Southwest and East Coast territories of the U.S. in early 2011 to keep up with increasing demand for embedded NVM.

"We are excited about our new partnerships with BAE and QoS," remarks Charlie Cheng, chief executive officer of Kilopass. "Kilopass doubled sales in 2009 and has been growing steadily ever since. BAE and QoS will help support the growing demand of Kilopass' XPM and Gusto products. Their extensive semiconductor experience combined with our strong embedded NVM offering will help us keep up with increasing demand and strengthen Kilopass' visibility to Silicon Valley startups and defense contractors." 

The combination of BAE Sales Inc. in the Silicon Valley and QoS in the Mid-Atlantic will provide Kilopass with a highly skilled sales team that has more than 100 years of combined experience in the territory.

"Kilopass' XPM and Gusto NVM IP are important additions to our product portfolio," says Mike Hornig, president of BAE Sales, Inc. "The demand for embedded NVM is growing and we are excited to be a part of the growth. Our sales team is proud to work with the Kilopass team to deliver low-risk, high-quality and reliable embedded NVM for a wide variety of applications from RFID to baseband SoC."

"This is a great partnership for both companies," adds Doug May, president of QoS. "The combination of QoS' strong sales presence in the defense space and Kilopass' leadership position in the NVM IP space will enable us to achieve great customer success. Code storage and security are critical requirements for defense applications. It is great to work with Kilopass who is in the forefront of innovating in these areas."
