Xuropa Launches Online Lab Featuring Cadence Verification IP

Online Community Lowers Cost of Sales, Enables Effective Leverage of Field Resources Globally

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - July 2, 2009) - Xuropa(SM) Incorporated today announced the opening of the first Xuropa Online Lab featuring technology from Cadence Design Systems (NASDAQ: CDNS).

With only a web browser, approved visitors to Xuropa Online Labs can access the Cadence Incisive® MIPI verification IP Components. Users can run simulations, employing them on example circuits at their convenience.

The service is free to Xuropa Community members and dramatically simplifies the process of evaluating EDA software products. Users can begin to test drive applications in minutes vs. the days or weeks it used to take to get agreements signed, software downloaded, and keys installed.

The Xuropa Online Community presents networking and learning tools in a professional environment and is dedicated to electronic design.

Addressing a Dynamic and Global Marketplace

"The better educated customers are about Cadence products the more likely they are to call us. Having our technology available through Xuropa Online Labs enables customers to move beyond the datasheet to view presentations and videos, and actually use the technology themselves -- at their desktops, and at their convenience," added Susan Peterson, Verification IP Marketing Director at Cadence. "With no installation headaches to deal with, the evaluation process becomes more efficient and effective for us and our customers."

Physical trade shows and conferences present engineers with the opportunity to try out new technologies and discuss them with experts. The Xuropa community complements these events by providing the tools and the experts online all year round, accessible from all over the world.

"Generic online communities are generally consumer-centric and electronic design companies tend to get lost in the noise," Xuropa CEO and founder James Colgan explained. "The electronics industry focus of Xuropa brings resonance and helps electronic design companies connect with their customers. The Xuropa Online Lab, featuring the Cadence VIP, exemplifies our goal -- to economically bring technology to engineers so they can make better purchase decisions faster."

Xuropa Online Labs featuring Cadence Incisive MIPI verification IP are accessible at no cost to authorized Xuropa members.
