—(BUSINESS WIRE)—February 1, 2008— Breker Verification Systems, Inc.:
   Adnan Hamid, founder and CEO, Breker Verification Systems (Austin,

   Panelist and paper presenter @ DesignCon 2008

   Hamid, founder of Breker, a graph-based functional test case
    synthesis startup, is a major figure in developing coverage-driven
    verification technology. Hamid will participate in a panel and
    also present a paper at DesignCon 2008.

   -- Is Coverage the Best Metric for Verification Closure?
      Monday, February 4, 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm (panel)

   -- Hope Is Not a (Verification) Strategy -- Coverage Model-Driven
       Functional Scenario Generation, Tuesday, February 5, 10:15 am -
       10:55 am (paper)

   -- The company will be exhibiting at booth 925

   DesignCon 2008
   Santa Clara Convention Center
   February 4 - 7, 2008

   Coverage-driven verification -- what Gary Smith calls "intelligent
    testbenches" -- is an undeniable hot topic for EDA in 2008. Breker
    and its founder, Hamid have been instrumental in developing
    technology and nurturing the movement for chip designers to adopt
    coverage-driven verification. Hamid is a recognized expert in the
    technology and has voiced startling and oftentimes controversial
    opinions about the future of verification technology over the past

   In these two forums, and at the Breker booth, Hamid and his staff
    will discuss trends, issues, challenges and problems in the
    current functional verification space and propose new technology
    approaches to accommodate chip designers' need for comprehensive
    verification methodologies. Given the high editorial and industry
    interest in coverage-driven verification, Hamid and Breker staff
    members will surely articulate strong opinions about where the
    technology needs to evolve to and what the new verification flow
    must look like in the next 18 - 24 months.

About Breker
   Breker Verification Systems is an EDA (electronic design
    automation) company that is bridging the gap between verification
    planning and the testbench using Graph-Based Functional Test
    Synthesis. Breker has created a functional test synthesis tool
    used to develop functional verification tests for complex designs.
    This solution makes the process of understanding, defining and
    analyzing complicated verification requirements easy and
    systematic, using a visual graph-based verification plan. By
    generating tests directly from the plan, the tool reduces
    verification effort by 11-14x while guaranteeing 100% verification
    plan coverage.

   Privately held, Breker was founded in 2003 in Austin, TX. Its
    corporate headquarters is at 8217 Edgemoor Place, Austin, Texas
    78749. Telephone: (512) 415-1199. On the Web at:
