Patent number: 7289386
Filing date: Jul 1, 2005
Issue date: Oct 30, 2007
Application number: 11/173,175


As of January 3, 2009, we had 9 patents issued and 12 patent applications pending. Assuming that they are properly maintained, four of our issued patents will expire in 2022, four will expire in 2025 and the other one will expire in 2027. Our issued patents and patent applications relate to the use of custom logic in high performance memory subsystems, PCB design, layout and packaging techniques. We intend to actively pursue the filing of additional patent applications related to our technology advancements. While we believe that our patent and other intellectual property rights are important to our success, our technical expertise and ability to introduce new products in a timely manner also will continue to be important factors in maintaining our competitive position. Accordingly, we believe that our business is not materially dependent upon any one claim in any of our pending patent applications.


FORM-10K "We have a portfolio of proprietary technologies and design techniques and have assembled an engineering team with expertise in semiconductor, printed circuit boards, memory subsystem and system design. Our technology competencies include:  Very Low Profile Designs. We were the first company to create a 1 gigabyte memory subsystem in a form factor of less than one inch in height. We believe our proprietary board design technology is particularly useful in the blade server market, where efficient use of motherboard space is critical. Our technology has allowed us to decrease the system board space required for memory, and improve thermal performance and operating speeds, by enabling our customers to use alternative methods of component layout.  Proprietary PCB Designs. We utilize advanced, proprietary techniques to optimize electronic signal strength and integrity within a PCB. These techniques include the use of 8- or 10-layer boards, matching conductive trace lengths, a minimized number of conductive connectors, or vias, and precise load balancing to, among other things, help reduce noise and crosstalk between adjacent traces. In addition, our proprietary designs for the precise placement of intra-substrate components allow us to assemble memory subsystems with significantly smaller physical size, enabling OEMs to develop products with smaller footprints for their customers"

Surpassing conventional memory products, Netlist's DRAM and Flash memory modules are designed to meet or exceed the demanding requirements of OEMs serving mission-critical and high-performance computing applications. We continually seek new ways to increase memory density, reliability, lifespan, speed, efficiency, robustness, and reduced power while at the same time addressing both the cost of ownership and the cost of operation. We design and manufacture customized memory sub-systems for high performance blade servers, computing clusters, high-end enterprise servers and telecommunications applications. At Netlist, we continually leverage our core competencies by engineering proprietary boards utilizing standard chips, innovative design and scalable layout techniques.. In addition, our low-voltage solutions offer substantial energy savings by significantly lowering power consumption and minimizing cooling costs. For example, Netlist's family of energy-efficient DDR2 FBDIMM (Fully Buffered DIMM) modules are manufactured with a new memory module quad rank architecture which features an advanced memory buffer (AMB) chip,  enabling fast transfer rates at low power, and low power memory. This not only lowers power consumption considerably, but also reduces data center cooling costs which are  escalating and will eventually match or exceed the hardware cost. Netlist's family of flash memory modules are built with performance and economy in mind. Our new industrial-grade Flash memory modules are guaranteed to 3 million write/erase cycles--50% longer than competitive offerings. Netlist flash memory cards and high capacity storage solutions serve enterprise, networking, automotive, military, embedded, medical, gaming and professional media applications. Netlist elevates the performance and value of memory subsystems through our patented technologies, state-of-the-art materials, and certified design, production, and testing processes. We are the memory optimization experts;  providing you the most for your memory dollars.



Netlist, Inc. engages in the design, manufacture, and sale of memory subsystems for the server, computing, and communications markets in the United States. Its memory subsystems consist of DRAM integrated circuits and other components assembled on a printed circuit board. The company?s products for the server market address various memory capacity and configuration requirements, as well as a range of server types, including tower, rack-mounted, and blade servers.
