Arasan Chip Systems Debuts Mobile Eco-System with Cadence

                                                           Third Party VIP Support for CSI MIPI Protocol

San Jose, California - Jan. 13, 2008 – Arasan Chip Systems, Inc. (“Arasan”), a leader in Intellectual Property (IP) solutions – IP cores, Verification IP (VIP), Software Drivers and Stacks and Hardware Solutions, today announced that Arasan Chip Systems and Cadence Design Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:CDNS), the leader in global electronic design innovation, are collaborating to provide system designers a method to speed verification of designs based on the emerging Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPISM) standard. This collaboration represents the debut of the first partnership in the mobile eco-system announced in previous months by Arasan.

The CSI-2 VIP is the first in a series of new VIP collaborations between Arasan and Cadence and allows customers to leverage the best of two worlds. Cadence provides a metric-driven randomly constrained approach, while Arasan has a directed test approach. The combination of the two approaches provides a unique and complete verification environment ensuring conformance to the MIPI protocol specification.

“With the increasing adoption of MIPI, collaboration becomes even more critical among leading EDA/VIP providers and IP providers in this space,” said Dave Tokic, Director of VIP/IP Solution and Product Marketing at Cadence. “By collaborating with Arasan, a leading mobile IP solutions provider, we can provide our customers with enhanced solutions to meet their quality and time-to-market goals.”

The collaboration will also extend to other MIPI protocols like UniProSM and SLIMbusSM. This collaboration provides assurance to the industry that products provided by both Arasan and Cadence will allow them to develop the highest quality devices that conform to the MIPI specification.

“Arasan is the world leader in MIPI IP. Working with Cadence, a leading name in verification, is a natural fit for us, said Kevin Yee, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Arasan. “This collaboration will allow customers to accelerate their development and will serve as a foundation for greater innovation and growth in the mobile handset market.”

Arasan has been a long time contributor to the MIPI Alliance and offers a complete family of IPs – CSI-2, DSI, UniPro, SLIMbus, HSI and D-PHY. They are uniquely optimized for low power, portable applications – camera sensors, ISPs, display modules, audio devices and mobile chipsets. Arasan leads the industry in having the “Total MIPI IP Solution”.
