Knowlent Moves to Larger Headquarters in Silicon Valley; Move Accommodates Additional Staff and Customer Support Facilities for Opal High-Speed Interface Design Verification Customers

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 27, 2005 -- Knowlent Corporation announced today that it has moved to larger facilities to accommodate its growing staff and larger customer support facilities for its innovative Opal Electrical Verification Platforms (EVPs) that speed up the verification of high-speed electronic design interfaces. The new headquarters are located at 2255 Martin Avenue, Suite H, Santa Clara, CA 95050.

Knowlent's Opal EVPs automatically verify the PHY (physical) layer of high-speed interfaces such as PCI Express, Serial ATA or XAUI interfaces for 130nm designs.

"We are growing rapidly and needed more space to accommodate our current and future staff," noted Sandipan Bhanot, CEO of Knowlent Corporation. "In particular, we have added to our customer support teams, and have strengthened our executive team to help us manage and continue our fast growth."

About Knowlent Electrical Verification IP

Verification platforms and the verification IP market is well established for digital design. Because of the rapid adoption of high-speed interface technology, there has been a significant change in interface verification requirements, and thus there is now a need for EVPs and associated electrical verification IP. Designers now have to thoroughly verify the electrical layer of the interface because this layer is most vulnerable to failures at higher speeds. Until now, interface verification offerings were limited to the functional level. With Knowlent's Opal, electrical verification of high-speed interfaces is now available to complement functional verification.
