Continuing Growth and Leadership in the Electronic Design Services Industry

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - December 6, 2007) - Nuvation, a leading Electronics Design Services (EDS) firm, announced today that it has opened a design center in Shanghai, China. Nuvation, established since 1997 and based in San Jose, CA, now operates world-class engineering centers in the US, Canada, and China. Nuvation provides FPGA design, printed circuit board (PCB) development, embedded software design, and turnkey product realization services to technology organizations worldwide.

Nuvation's Shanghai Design Center will augment the US and Canadian design centers with offshore capabilities, design localization for offshore manufacturing, dedicated Offshore Design Center (ODC) offerings, and access to the growing Chinese marketplace.

"Nuvation has always been recognized by our customers for engineering excellence in new product development from concept to production," stated Michael Worry, CEO of Nuvation. "Our clients have been asking us to add lower-cost engineering capabilities for product lifecycle maintenance, product evolution programs, and design localization for offshore manufacturing centers. We are thrilled with the talent joining our Shanghai team and are looking forward to rapid growth in this facility."

Hosting more than 20,000 technology organizations, Shanghai is recognized as one of the top engineering centers in all of China. Cisco, HP, Microsoft, Intel, TI, Altera, Cypress Semiconductor, and many other leading technology firms operate R&D centers in this city of 18 million. Nuvation's Shanghai office represents the company's first overseas expansion.

"Many of our clients are requesting an offshoring option for cost-sensitive projects," commented Nuvation's Engineering Director, Mark Nohr. "Our clients have come to rely on Nuvation's Engineering Excellence, and this organically grown extension adheres to our world-class methodologies and culture. Offering this capability through our North American operations and oversight makes this seamless to our clients."

Nuvation's Shanghai Design Center is located in the heart of China's high technology community at 2453 WanHangDu Road in the Changning District.
