Virtutech to Participate in Four Presentations and Panels on Multicore Software Development and Simulation at Multicore Expo 2008

—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 2, 2008— Virtutech, Inc.:
WHAT:    Virtutech, Inc., the leader in virtualized software
          development (VSD), will present two sessions and serve on
          two panels on maximizing the potential of multicore
          processors at the Multicore Expo, the only conference
          dedicated to delivering real developer solutions for
          multicore and multiprocessing designs. Additionally,
          Virtutech will demonstrate the new version of its Simics
          platform at Virtutech booth number 12.

WHY:     As multicore processors become more prevalent in computing
          systems, simulator performance needs to keep pace and enable
          software developers to optimize their multicore performance.
          Ross Dickson, principal technology specialist for Virtutech,
          will discuss what works and when it works when it comes to
          quickly simulating multicore systems. He'll discuss the
          benefits of adding cycle accurate processor and accelerator
          models to broaden the simulation utility, as well as
          debugging, software performance analysis, and software
          testing.

WHEN:    Wednesday, April 2, 2008
         -- 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. PT
         Panel: "Are Virtual Platforms an Enabler for Multi-Processor
