Pyramid Semiconductor was formed in January 2003 through the acquisition of all the product lines from Performance Semiconductor. These product lines included the MIL-STD-1750A Processor family and the complete family of SRAMs previously offered by Performance Semiconductor. All products previously supported by Performance Semiconductor are being supported now by Pyramid Semiconductor. The Pyramid Semiconductor part numbering scheme is identical to the part numbers previously used by Performance Semiconductor.
