Netlist Awarded New Hybrid Memory Architecture Patent

September 12, 2016

IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Netlist, Inc. (NASDAQ: NLST), announced the issuance of U.S. Patent No. 9,436,600 (the '600 patent) relating to a multi-channel hybrid memory architecture that uses non-volatile memory to protect critical data in the event of power loss. 

Netlist's fundamental hybrid memory portfolio reflects nearly a decade of pioneering work by Netlist engineers creating products that leverage the combined strengths of volatile and non-volatile memory.  The '600 patent is the latest addition to a growing number of battle-tested patents that cover the architectures and key design features of hybrid memory systems.  In particular, Netlist's patented innovations have enabled the use of NAND flash in high-speed modules operating on the memory channel, such as Netlist NVvault® NVDIMM and the company's latest storage class memory product HybriDIMM™ introduced last month. 

"We are pleased to see the U.S. Patent Office continue to validate our position as a pioneer in the area of hybrid memory," said Netlist's Vice President of Intellectual Property and Licensing, Noel Whitley.  "The ground-breaking work of our engineers is reflected not only in our valuable patent portfolio, but also in our track record of bringing disruptive new products to market.  We remain focused on monetizing these innovations through our products business as well as pursuing licensing opportunities for our patent portfolio."
