Fujitsu Semiconductor America Inc.

San Francisco, CA, March 07, 2005

Fujitsu Microelectronics America, Inc. (FMA) will introduce a new family of microcontrollers for network security applications, along with its new FlexRay® Evaluation Kit, an FPGA-based development platform for vehicle systems, at the annual Embedded Systems Conference at San Francisco's Moscone Center March 8 to 10.

Fujitsu will also announce that its MBF200 single touch sensor and MBF310 Sweep Sensor™ have been selected for a new fingerprint-verification reference design module developed by Shimon Systems and based on DSP technology from Texas Instruments Incorporated. (See the March 1, 2005, press release from TI and Shimon.) ODI, a leading developer of cost-effective, highly integrated embedded systems, has selected the Fujitsu fingerprint sensors for its compact, embedded fingerprint-matching modules.

In addition, FMA will present its newest Coral-P and Coral PA Graphics Display Controllers, featuring 2D/3D graphics drivers developed by ALT Software, which allow the GDCs to operate on ALT's OpenGL® and OpenGL ES architectures.

FMA also will demonstrate its 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit MCUs, along with its Mobile Media Processors, which are designed for cellular phones, PDAs and other handheld devices.

New 32-Bit MCUs, FlexRay Evaluation Kit
The new MB9140x microcontroller series features the industry's first 32-bit MCUs equipped with a full range of networking security features, on-board ROM and RAM, and support for IPv6, the next-generation Internet protocol.

The FlexRay Evaluation Kit enables the design and verification of hardware and software applications for vehicle power train and other applications. The kit allows designs to begin prior to the availability of production silicon, so customers can get working FlexRay products to market in the fastest possible time. FlexRay is the newly emerging automotive network-communications standard, providing dependability, availability, flexibility, and high data rates.
