MathStar Releases Second Generation MPEG-2 Encoder IP Core for the Arrix(R) Family of FPOAs

Delivers Enhanced Performance and MPEG2 Transport Stream Support

HILLSBORO, Ore., April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MathStar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MATH), a fabless semiconductor company specializing in high-performance programmable logic, today announced the release of its second generation MPEG-2 Encoder Intellectual Property (IP) core for applications using the company's field programmable object array (FPOA) chips. Building on the successful integration of its first generation core into high-performance video customer LG Electronics' MPEG-4/H.264 to MPEG-2 transcoder solution for the hospitality industry, MathStar's enhanced core supports full 4:2:2 color space, 1080i/720p resolution encoding, and optional MPEG-2, Part 1 compliant transport stream encoding for packet networks and broadcasting.

Utilized by multiple customers in professional and broadcast video applications, MathStar's IP cores speed time to market by enabling quick and efficient deployment of performance-demanding FPOA designs.

"Our second generation MPEG-2 Encoder IP strengthens MathStar's expanding IP portfolio and demonstrates our continuing commitment to providing advanced video encoding and transcoding solutions," said Dan Sweeney, MathStar's President and COO.

MathStar will demonstrate its MPEG-2 encoder core for the Arrix Family FPOA in an MPEG-4/H.264 to MPEG-2 transcoder utilizing a live DirecTV(R) 720p feed at the 2008 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show April 14-17 in Las Vegas.
