For many years we have developed and marketed high performance memory products, including “Very Fast” static random access memory, or SRAM, that are incorporated primarily in high-performance networking and telecommunications equipment, such as routers, switches, wide area network infrastructure equipment, wireless base stations and network access equipment. We sell these products to leading original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, customers including Nokia. In addition, we serve the ongoing needs of the military, industrial, test and measurement equipment, automotive and medical markets for high-performance SRAMs. Based on the performance characteristics of our products and the breadth of our product portfolio, we consider ourselves to be a leading provider of Very Fast SRAMs. We utilize a fabless business model, which allows us both to focus our resources on research and development, product design and marketing, and to gain access to advanced process technologies with only modest capital investment and fixed costs.
Beginning in November 2015 with the acquisition of an Israeli company, our principal strategic objective has been the development of in-place associative computing solutions for applications in evolving new markets such as “big data” (including machine learning and deep convolutional neural networks (“CNNs”)), natural language processing, computer vision, and cyber security. Our commercialization efforts for the initial associative processing unit (“APU”) are focused on applications using similarity search, such as visual search in ecommerce and molecular structure similarity search in drug discovery.
