Enea Forges Strategic Collaboration with NetLogic Microsystems

KISTA, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) - Multicore Leaders Collaborate to Deliver Comprehensive RTOS and Linux Platforms Targeting Communications Equipment

STOCKHOLM, Sweden and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. 27 April, 2010 - Enea and NetLogic Microsystems (NASDAQ: NETL), a worldwide leader in high-performance intelligent semiconductor solutions for next-generation Internet networks, today announced that they have entered into a strategic collaboration to deliver a comprehensive set of software solutions that will simplify the development of multicore- based communications systems. The agreement spans a number of Enea offerings including its award-winning Enea® OSE Multicore Edition realtime operating system (RTOS) and Enea® Optima. In addition, Enea will build and deliver a Linux development environment based on the Enea Linux Project Framework (ELPF) for the NetLogic Microsystems Linux-based SDK. All Enea offerings will be available across the NetLogic Microsystems' XLP™, XLR® and XLS® multi-core, multi-threaded processor families.

"We are excited to collaborate with Enea to optimize their award-winning RTOS and Linux solutions on our industry-leading multicore, multi-threaded processors," said Mark Litvack, senior director of business development, Multi-Core Processor Products at NetLogic Microsystems. "Collaborating with a strong player like Enea to deliver state-of-the-art multicore platforms to the market is central to our strategy of enabling leading OEMs to develop highly competitive and differentiated solutions in the market."

"The communications infrastructure market is demanding best-in-class hardware and software solutions that are able to deliver the performance, scalability and reliability required for advanced video, IPv6 and backhaul services," said Mathias Bath, senior vice president of marketing at Enea. "We are pleased to collaborate with NetLogic Microsystems, a respected industry-leader in multicore processors, to optimize Enea's world-class multicore platform software, support and services on the XLP, XLR and XLS processors."

Enea and NetLogic Microsystems are collaborating to deliver innovative hardware and software solutions to their mutual customers:

* Enea will port and enhance the performance of its Enea OSE Multicore Edition RTOS to NetLogic Microsystems' XLS, XLR and XLP families of multi-core, multi-threaded processors. As a preeminent RTOS for NetLogic Microsystems processors, Enea OSE will be delivered with comprehensive board support packages for evaluation boards out of the box, as well as the full Optima Eclipse-based development tools framework, ensuring that mutual customers can rapidly evaluate and develop advanced networking platforms with a fully integrated solution.


* Enea will develop a version of its Eclipse-based Linux configuration and build tool known as ELPF, in a pre-integrated NetLogic Microsystems Edition, that incorporates the NetLogic Microsystems Linux-based SDK. This new, combined tool set will be based on a custom configuration of Enea Optima and be delivered to all NetLogic Microsystems customers. It is a freely available platform for a flexible and easily deployable Linux environment.


* As an option for customers seeking commercial support from Enea's Linux experts, Enea will provide annual support subscriptions for customers who choose to use the ELPF NetLogic Microsystems Edition development environment including the Linux packages themselves and the tools framework.


* The two companies will also jointly explore and evaluate additional collaboration opportunities based on additional Enea software offerings, including advanced networking protocols, database solutions, and device and systems management middleware.
