MoSys reported the fastest-growing IP revenues for FY2001 worldwide, among the top 20 semiconductor intellectual property (SIP) companies, according to research conducted by Jim Tully, a chief analyst at Gartner Dataquest. MoSys' revenues from semiconductor intellectual property leapt from $1.4 million in 2000 to $9.5 million in 2001. MoSys also ranked first in growth of royalties derived from semiconductor IP, from zero in 2000 to $3.4 million in 2001.
These royalties represented 36% of MoSys' revenues from IP, higher than the industry average of 22%.
In the opening statement of a recent Dataquest brief, "Semiconductor intellectual property market rises 25%", Jim Tully asserted, "Royalties remain the major way forward for the industry.
Vendors must develop business models that will build royalty revenue".
"We're very satisfied with our worldwide number one ranking in IP revenue growth", said Mark-Eric Jones, vice president and general manager of intellectual property for MoSys, "and we're particularly pleased with the percentage of revenues that are royalties.
This shows the increasing adoption of our technology for volume production by our customers, and the continuing value they receive.
It's good to see that Dataquest concurs on the importance of royalties in the SIP business model".
This trend toward increasing royalties continued at MoSys during the first quarter of 2002.
For Q1-2002, MoSys reported royalties higher than the entire previous year: $3.6 million.
This represented 66% of the company's IP revenues of $5.5 million.
