Business Segments Description



Memory: The Company’s Memory segment has two primary product types: DRAM and NAND Flash.

Dynamic Random Access Memory (“DRAM”): DRAM products are high-density, low-cost-per-bit, random access memory devices that provide high-speed data storage and retrieval. The Company offers DRAM products with a variety of performance, pricing and other characteristics. In recent years, the Company has significantly increased its production and sales of specialty memory products such as pseudo-static RAM, Mobile DRAM and Reduced Latency DRAM. Specialty memory products are generally targeted for networking, server and mobile applications that require specific performance characteristics such as low power and low latency. The transition to specialty memory products has reduced the Company’s concentration on standardized, high-volume products sold for use as main memory in computers such as Double Data Rate Synchronous DRAM (“DDR”) and DDR2.

DDR and DDR2: DDR and DDR2 are standardized, high-density, high-volume, DRAM products that are sold primarily for use as main system memory in computers. DDR and DDR2 products offer high speed and high bandwidth at a relatively low cost compared to other semiconductor memory products. The Company expects that DDR and DDR2 products will continue to decrease as a percentage of the Company’s total net sales in 2007 due to significant increases in sales of the Company’s other products.

In response to changes in the DRAM market, the Company has broadened its DDR and DDR2 product offerings in recent years. The Company offers DDR products in 128 megabit (“Mb”), 256 Mb, 512 Mb and 1 gigabit (“Gb”) densities. The Company also offers 256 Mb, 512 Mb, 1 Gb and 2 Gb DDR2 products. The Company expects that these densities will be necessary to meet future customer demands for a broad array of products. The Company also offers its DDR and DDR2 products in multiple configurations, speeds and package types. In September 2006, the Company began sampling a 1 Gb DDR3 device.

Synchronous DRAM (“SDRAM”): In 2006 and 2005, SDRAM was primarily used in networking devices, servers, consumer electronics, communications equipment and computer peripherals as well as memory upgrades to legacy computers. Sales of SDRAM products were 16%, 20% and 31% of the Company’s total net sales in 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively. SDRAM sales have declined as personal computer manufacturers have transitioned to DDR and DDR2 products. The decline has been partially offset by increased usage of SDRAM products in other applications. The Company offers 64 Mb, 128 Mb, 256 Mb and 512 Mb SDRAM products.

Pseudo-static RAM (“PSRAM”): PSRAM products, marketed by the Company under the proprietary brand name CellularRAM™, are DRAM products with an SRAM-like interface. PSRAM combines the minimal power consumption of SRAM with a much lower cost-per-bit to provide an economical alternative to SRAM. PSRAM products are used primarily in cellular phone applications. The Company offers PSRAM products in 16 Mb, 32 Mb, 64 Mb and 128 Mb densities. The Company is the market leader in sales of PSRAM products. Sales of PSRAM products were 8% and 7% of the Company’s total net sales in 2006 and 2005, respectively.

Mobile DRAM: Mobile DRAM products are specialty DRAM memory devices designed for applications that demand minimal power consumption, such as personal digital assistants (PDAs), smart phones, GPS devices, digital still cameras and other handheld electronic devices. The Company sells SDRAM and DDR mobile memory products in 64 Mb, 128 Mb, 256 Mb and 512 Mb densities. The Company’s mobile DRAM products feature its proprietary Endur-IC™ technology, which the Company believes provides distinct advantages to its customers in terms of low power, high quality and high reliability.

Reduced Latency DRAM (“RLDRAM”): RLDRAM products are low-latency DRAM memory devices with high clock rates targeted at network applications. The Company offers RLDRAM in 256 Mb and 288 Mb densities and expects to begin shipping 576 Mb densities in 2007.

NAND Flash Memory: Flash memory products are electrically re-writeable, non-volatile semiconductor devices that retain memory content when power is turned off. The Company’s Flash efforts are concentrated on NAND Flash (“NAND”) devices which use semiconductor technology similar to DRAM. NAND is ideal for mass-storage devices due to its faster erase and write times, higher density, and lower cost per bit than NOR Flash, which is the primary competing Flash architecture. The market for NAND products has grown rapidly and the Company expects it to continue to grow due to demand for removable and embedded storage devices. Removable storage devices such as USB and Flash memory cards are used with applications such as personal computers, digital still cameras, MP3 players and mobile phones. Embedded NAND-based storage devices are also utilized in mobile phones and other personal and consumer applications.

NAND and DRAM share common manufacturing processes, enabling the Company to leverage its product and process technologies and manufacturing infrastructure. The Company’s NAND designs feature a small cell structure that allows for higher densities for demanding applications. In 2006, the Company offered NAND products in 1 Gb, 2 Gb, 4 Gb and 8 Gb densities and plans to introduce 16 Gb densities in 2007. In 2006, the Company’s products were manufactured primarily using 72nm and 90nm line-width process technology and began sampling products manufactured using 50nm line-width process technology. In addition, in 2006, the Company began sampling Multi-Level Cell (“MLC”) NAND products, which double the bit density compared to single level cell products. NAND sales were 6% of the Company’s total net sales in 2006. The Company expects sales of NAND to increase significantly in 2007 and 2008 as it ramps production from two 300mm facilities dedicated to NAND production and recognizes sales by its Lexar subsidiary.

As a result of its acquisition of Lexar, the Company began selling in the fourth quarter of 2006 high-performance digital media products and other flash-based storage products through retail and original equipment manufacturing (OEM) channels. The Company’s digital media products include a variety of Flash memory cards with a range of speeds, capacities and value-added features. The Company’s digital media products also include its JumpDrive™ products, which are high-speed, portable USB flash drives for consumer applications that serve a variety of uses, including floppy disk replacement, digital media accessories and a variety of connectivity products that link media products to PCs and other electronic host devices. The Company also licenses its patented controller technology to other companies.

The Company offers Flash memory cards in all major media formats currently used by digital cameras and other electronic host devices, including: CompactFlash, Memory Stick, Secure Digital Card and the xD Picture Card. Many of CompactFlash, Memory Stick and Memory Stick PRO products sold by the Company incorporate its patented controller technology. Other products, including Secure Digital Card Flash memory cards and some JumpDrive products, incorporate third party controllers. The Company also resells Flash memory products that are purchased from suppliers. The Company offers Flash memory cards in a variety of speeds and capacities. The Company also offers more advanced features in some Flash media card products that provide additional performance advantages, such as Write Acceleration, or WA technology, the ActiveMemory™ System and LockTight™ CompactFlash. The Company sells products under its Lexar™ brand and also manufactures products that are sold under other brand names. The Company has a multi-year agreement with Eastman Kodak to sell digital media products under the Kodak brand name.

Imaging: Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (“CMOS”) image sensors are the primary product of the Company’s Imaging segment. CMOS image sensors are semiconductor devices that capture and process images into pictures or video for a variety of consumer and industrial applications. The Company’s CMOS image sensors are used in products such as cellular phone cameras, digital still cameras, pill cameras for medical use, and in automotive and other emerging applications. The Company offers image sensors in a range of pixel resolutions from its VGA (video graphics array) products to its higher resolution 3.1-megapixel products. The Company has begun sampling a 5-megapixel sensor designed for use in digital still cameras and camera phones that it expects to begin shipping in commercial volumes in 2007. In 2006, the Company introduced an 8-megapixel sensor featuring a leading-edge pixel size of 1.75 square microns. Image sensors are sold either as individual components or combined with integrated circuitry to create complete camera system-on-a-chip (“SOC”) solutions.

The Company’s CMOS image sensors incorporating its DigitalClarity™ technology offered many advantages over other CMOS image sensors and charge-coupled device (“CCD”) sensors in 2006, which enabled the Company to become the leader in CMOS image sensor market share. The Company’s DigitalClarity™ technology features “active pixels” enabling better sensor performance that produces higher-quality images at faster frame rates. The Company’s low-leakage DRAM processes are particularly well-suited for the manufacture of CMOS image sensors. The Company’s CMOS image sensors consume substantially less power than CCD devices, a critical advantage in battery-dependent portable device applications where most image sensors are used. By combining all camera functions on a single chip, from the capture of photons to the output of digital bits, CMOS image sensors reduce the part-count of a digital camera system, which in turn increases reliability, eases miniaturization, and enables on-chip programming of frame size, windowing, exposure and other camera parameters. The Company’s CMOS image sensors are also capable of producing high-quality images in low-light conditions. In 2006, the Company’s CMOS image sensors’ active-pixel design architecture enabled the Company to achieve CMOS imager performance that was comparable to high-end CCD sensors and better than that of its competitor’s CMOS image sensors.
