Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute Achieves Digital Video Tuner Tapeout Success With Cadence Virtuoso IC 6.1

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jun 15, 2009 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), the leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced that the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), a non-profit organization that serves to strengthen Taiwan's technological competitiveness, used Cadence® Virtuoso® IC 6.1 technology to tapeout a low-power DVB-H (digital video broadcasting - handheld) RF tuner chip. The ITRI has licensed this developed RF circuit design to several third parties as part of its effort to promote technological innovation in Taiwan.

The ITRI deployed Virtuoso IC 6.1 technology to accelerate the design of its DVB-H RF tuner chip, which was based on TSMC's 65-nanometer process and used the Virtuoso IC 6.1 process design kit. The Virtuoso technology includes comprehensive advanced features like a powerful built-in toolbox, which enables bus creation and high-level editing to dramatically improve layout productivity and enhance the post-simulation result. Designers also benefit from the user-friendly GUI and the ability to use existing SKILL code in the IC 6.1 design environment without extra effort or repetitive manual work. The result is a fast, accurate path to differentiated silicon.

"Our DVB-H RF tuner, which provides a low-power solution, is well-suited to the mobile phone and other portable devices, and Cadence Virtuoso IC 6.1 technology helps to drive our goal of continuing to enable the Taiwan semiconductor market," said Dr. Cheng-Wen Wu, general director of SoC Technology Center, ITRI. "As the leader in custom design solutions, Cadence has provided its unique technology and expertise to enhance the Institute's design capabilities. This solution will help us to continue expediting the development of new industrial technology."

"We are glad to see that through Cadence technology in custom design, the ITRI is on the fast track of wireless broadband communication design development for the digital television field," said Chi-Ping Hsu, senior vice president of research and development for the Implementation Group at Cadence. "We are confident our technology can bring to many more customers the high value and high productivity that the ITRI is benefiting from right now."
