Chip Estimate's InCyte™ Enterprise a DesignVision Award Finalist

System Delivers Accurate Chip Plans That Can Drive IC Implementation

CUPERTINO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2007 -- Chip Estimate Corporation announced today that its InCyte Enterprise system has placed as one of the International Engineering Consortium's (IEC) DesignVision award finalists for 2007. InCyte Enterprise, chip planning and estimation software for electronic design, is one of three finalists in the System-Level Design Tools category. The system combines high-level design intent with IP and technology macro-models to generate accurate chip estimates that are used throughout classic EDA implementation flows. This saves design teams time as they can perform accurate iterations in seconds at any stage in the design flow.

"We are honored that InCyte Enterprise has been selected as one of the 2007 DesignVision award finalists," said Casey Jones, VP of Marketing for Chip Estimate. "The system is a direct result of customers' requests for a fast and accurate system that encapsulates design intent, and can be used alongside classic EDA tools to speed what-if analysis and design optimization throughout the whole design process."

IEC President John Janowiak remarked, "Our DesignVision Awards honor those catalyzing positive change in high-technology, business, and academia, completely in line with the IEC's mission. We are delighted to recognize our DesignVision Finalists and share the best design advancements and innovators with the entire industry."

The DesignVision Awards will be presented at DesignCon at noon, Tuesday, January 30, at the Santa Clara Convention Center (Santa Clara, Calif.). For more information about DesignCon, please visit
