Apache Appoints Dr. Ping Yang to Board of Directors

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 20, 2006— Apache Design Solutions, the technology leader in physical power integrity solutions for system-on-chip (SoC) designs, today announced that Dr. Ping Yang, the former Vice President of Research and Development (R&D) at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), has been elected to its Board of Directors.

Dr. Yang worked for TSMC from 1997 until 2005, where he held various executive-level positions, including Vice President of R&D responsible for the research and development of deep sub-micron logic and embedded memory technologies, Senior Vice President of TSMC North America, and Vice President of Design Services and DRAM development. Prior to TSMC, Dr. Yang was employed at Texas Instruments, where he was the Director of Device and Design Flow, and was elected a Texas Instrument Fellow.

Dr. Yang received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has co-authored two books, published over 120 articles in international scientific journals and holds ten patents.

"We have a tremendous respect for Dr. Yang's extensive business and technical experience and his unique understanding of foundry, IC designs and design tools," said Andrew Yang, CEO of Apache. "We are very excited to have him join Apache's Board of Directors and to work with him in guiding the Company's future direction in physical design analysis and manufacturability for 65/45 nanometer SoC."
