Sidense Achieves Record Results for FY2010

Best Year for Bookings Ever for Fiscal Year Ending September 30, 2010

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  Sidense Corp., a leading developer of Logic Non-Volatile Memory (LNVM) OTP IP cores, announced today that the Company has achieved record annual bookings for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2010. Furthermore, the Company's Cumulative Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) from end of FY2008 to end of FY2010 was a robust 43.51%.

The 2010 fiscal year was very successful for Sidense in several ways. Along with record annual financial results, the Company had a strong fiscal fourth quarter. During this period, Sidense had design wins with several new Tier 1 customers, each with annual revenues of over $1B, and currently has a double-digit list of these prominent accounts. The Company also strengthened its position in fiscal fourth quarter in many key market segments and applications, including automotive, precision analog trimming, HDMI and other audio/video digital interfaces, and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 high-speed interfaces.

"FY2010 was an exceptional year for Sidense, both in our technology advances and in our customer engagements," said Tom Schild, Sidense's VP of Worldwide Sales. "We continue to be the leader in antifuse one-time programmable memory IP, with our patented 1T-Fuse™-based OTP products that have been used by more than 70 customers in over 120 designs."

Based on a one-transistor (1T) bit cell, Sidense's SiPROM, SLP and ULP memory IP macros provide customers with a one-time programmable (OTP), highly secure, very reliable and cost-effective storage solution that is a low-power alternative for many applications currently using traditional mask ROM, Flash and eFuse technologies. Field-programmable Sidense OTP macros provide a means of lengthening product lifetime and increasing product ROI.
