SAN JOSE, CA, 2008년 7월 31일 -- Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) today named Ben A. Lee as senior vice-president of worldwide sales, reporting to Christopher Seams, executive vice president of sales and marketing.

Lee brings 20 years of experience in sales, marketing and executive leadership in the semiconductor industry, having worked with companies specializing in programmable solutions, as well as broadline suppliers. Most recently, he was Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Trident Microsystems, where he worked with the CEO to define the company's market vision. Previously Lee was Chief Operating Officer at Apexone, responsible for day-to-day operations of the China-based mixed-signal start-up.

"Its next-generation products are well-positioned to expand the company's total market and take significant market share from the competition. I am pleased to join the Cypress team and eager to be a part of its transformation into a leading provider of programmable solutions."
