Sunnyvale, Calif., December 7, 1998 - Rendition, a division of Micron Technology and supplier of award-winning, multi-functional graphics accelerators for the PC, today announced plans to expand its design capabilities and open two new engineering facilities in the Bracknell, England area, and in Portland, Oregon. Rendition was acquired by Micron in September 1998 to develop and produce embedded DRAM graphics accelerators and has been actively recruiting skilled engineers across multiple disciplines worldwide. These new design centers, combined with Micron's state-of-the-art manufacturing resources and embedded DRAM (EDRAM) technology, should enhance Rendition's position as a graphics provider.

"By recruiting a worldwide network of engineering talent, Rendition is positioned to introduce graphics technology which outperforms today's accelerators by an order of magnitude," said Dr. David Burrows, Director of Engineering for the UK Design Centre. "We are excited to acquire the talent to allow us to develop embedded technologies for the mainstream graphics arena."

The Bracknell-based team will initially be comprised of employees who were formerly part of LSI Logic Corporation and will be combined in the same facility as Micron Europe Limited, the UK semiconductor sales group.

"The Oregon site is well situated to tap into the highly-skilled pool of technical labor—and to attract engineering professionals to the desirable Greater Portland area," said David Gray, Director of Engineering for the Northwest Design Center. "We expect continued growth as the market for EDRAM graphics and other embedded technologies expand."

"Rendition is vigorously recruiting talented engineers eager to join the EDRAM graphics revolution," said John Payne, Vice President of Micron's Rendition Division. "We'll continue to assemble our pre-eminent graphics design team to help us achieve a superior level of graphics performance."
