Business Segments

We have realigned our operating segments as part of our continued efforts to better allocate key management resources and to focus on our core markets, such as our programmable products including our flagship PSoC® programmable system-on-chip solution and its derivatives, Universal Serial Bus (USB) including the high performance West Bridge solutions and our industry leading high performance SRAM memory solutions. Accordingly, beginning with the three months ended April 1, 2012, we have reported our financial results under the following business segments:

2013 Revenue

Business SegmentsDescription
MPD: Memory Products Division An existing division that will continue to focus on our four static random access memory (SRAM) business units, general-purpose programmable clocks and process technology licensing. Its purpose is to enhance our No. 1 position in SRAMs and invent new and related products.
DCD: Data Communications Division An existing division realigned to focus solely on USB controllers, WirelessUSBâ„¢ and West Bridge® peripheral controllers for handsets, PCs and tablets. Its purpose is to enhance our No. 1 position in USB.
PSD: Programmable Systems Division A new division focusing primarily on our PSoC® and PSoC-based products. This business segment focuses on (1) the PSoC platform family of devices including PSoC 1, PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 and all derivatives, (2) PSoC-based user interface products such as CapSense® touch-sensing and TrueTouch touchscreen products, (3) PSoC-based module solutions including Trackpad and Ovation Optical Navigation Sensors (ONS) and (4) automotive products. Within this externally reported PSD Division are two internal PSoC-based divisions: the first, the Consumer and Computation Division (CCD), which runs our businesses for TrueTouch, CapSense, Trackpads and Ovation, and the second, also named PSD, which runs our PSoC core business. CCD is chartered to become No. 1 in CapSense and TrueTouch. PSD is chartered to build the base PSoC franchise. We will report the internal CCD and PSD divisions together as PSD.
ETD: Emerging Technologies Division Our "startup" division includes AgigA Tech Inc. and Deca Technologies Inc., which are both majority-owned subsidiaries of Cypress. ETD also includes our foundry business and other development-stage activities. Note that certain businesses, such as our trackpad business, have "graduated" from ETD as it was reported in 2011 into operating divisions, thus resetting ETD revenue to a new base for 2012.

As a result of the change in the structure of our business segments, the financial results we reported in prior periods under the old business segment structure have been recast to conform to the new segment presentation. This reclassification did not impact our previously reported consolidated revenues, operating income, net income, or earnings per share.
