    TORONTO, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - Micromem Technologies Inc. (OTC BB: MMTIF) is
pleased to announce the company has significantly enhanced its product
offering as a result of the foundry success with its MRAM design. With the
success of the GaAs version the company can now look to enhance its memory
offerings with recently filed patents for silicon germanium and silicon
designs. Micromem plans to announce market release dates for each memory
option in the future. The company's sales and marketing effort is now being
divided between MRAM and sensors.
    Micromem also announces that its foundry success has enabled the company
to explore the lucrative magnetic sensor market. The ultra low power, high
sensitivity Hall cross sensor, is a strategic component of the non-volatile
random access memory design. Based on business development contacts and
sharing foundry results with key verticals, Micromem has now expanded its
portfolio into the following key markets:

    -  Defense
    -  Healthcare
    -  Mining and mineral exploration
    -  Manufacturing and quality control/defect detection
    -  Consumer applications

    Joseph Fuda, President and CEO stated, "What has really helped us market
our technology has been success in the foundry. The memory has turned out to
be relatively easy to manufacture. The low power consumption and overall
sensitivity of the Hall cross sensor has opened up a vastly wider market for
Micromem's patented technology".
