NeoMagic mentions in SSD market history
In March 2004 - M-Systems announced that its DiskOnChip was being used in a smart phone design which used a microcontroller from NeoMagic. Although that was long before NeoMagic decided that the SSD market was attractive in its own right - it indicates that the company's traditional chip activities would have given it good visibility into embedded SSD markets.

In January 2011 - NeoMagic announced it was seeking finance to help expand its IP and presence in the SSD controller market.

"We are pleased to have Instream Partners assist us in obtaining development funding for a new suite of USB 3.0 based semiconductors that we expect to include UFD (USB flash drive) and SSD (solid state drive) controllers," said Syed Zaidi, President and CEO of NeoMagic Corporation. Mr. Zaidi continued, "Any funding received will allow us to expand our in-house development team and execute our strategic commitment to bring new technologies to market."

In February 2012 - NeoMagic announced that the company is ready to demonstrate MagicVault, its USB 3.0 based UFD USB Flash Drive Controller solution on an FPGA platform.
