Angstrom Microsystems™ Enters the Billion Dollar High Performance Computing Software Market With Accelerated Solutions

Angstrom Saves Electricity Usage in the Data Center by Reducing the Number of Computers Needed to Perform Calculations

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - Angstrom Microsystems Corp. (OTCBB: ANGS), a green computing solutions company, announces today that it has developed xBlas™, a software that accelerates by up to 300x, a fully compatible Altas Blas™ linear algebra library. This significantly reduces the number of computers needed to run these calculations thereby saving electricity in the data center. Atlas Blas is a standard used by many industries as far flung as the automotive sector for designing cars using Fluent™ software, quantum physics in developing new solar panel solutions using Q-Chem™ software and to CAD/CAM to visualize complex models quickly using Autodesk™ software.

What makes Angstrom's xBlas product special is that it does not require additional software development on the part of the customer to see remarkable gains (up to 300x) in performance. Instead, Angstrom provides a software library that looks and functions identically to the standard Altas Blas that is in use today by the majority of high performance computing facilities worldwide. Going "the last mile" affords our customers the luxury of keeping their existing software from being split into two hard to maintain competing code bases -- a show-stopper for most of our customers. Angstrom is additionally offering this software in Angstrom servers as a turnkey solution to provide its clients with the greatest energy efficiency available on the market. Further, Angstrom will also offer this solution as a separate licensed product allowing for a broader base of clients and additional revenue stream for Angstrom.

Angstrom Microsystems specializes in Green Computing solutions, providing blade servers and workstations for high performance computing. With both hardware and software solutions to reduce the power needed to drive computing, Angstrom reduces the number of machines required to facilitate these tasks and thereby saving companies significant investments in additional servers at the same time reducing the energy required to run these servers.

"Angstrom is excited to provide an Altas Blas compatible library that not only blows the doors off of existing performance numbers, it is designed to fit hand-in-glove with any existing customer software without any significant modifications," said Lalit Jain, CEO of Angstrom Microsystems. "Angstrom has done the work to go the last mile, enabling the customer to rapidly deploy xBlas with their existing code base."
