 WANG LICENSES SMART MODULAR TECHNOLOGIES
 FREMONT, Calif., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart Modular


Technologies, Inc., announced today that it has reached a licensing agreement with Wang Laboratories, allowing SMART to continue manufacturing 30 pin X9 DRAM SIMMs, a technology patented by Wang. Wang has also agreed to terminate all litigation against SMART as a part of this settlement.
 Ajay Shah, president and co-founder of SMART Modular Technologies, said, "We decided to become licensed with Wang as a service to our customers. Some users of our 30 pin X9 DRAM SIMMs, which represent less than five percent of our total sales, have expressed concern about their potential liability for simply using an unlicensed product. We also wanted to ensure that their shipments of these devices would not be interrupted."
