Virage Logic to Showcase Robust Portfolio of Memory Controller Solutions at DesignCon

FREMONT, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 31, 2008— Virage Logic Corporation (NASDAQ: VIRL), the semiconductor industry's trusted IP partner and pioneer in Silicon Aware IP(TM), today announced that it will be featuring the newest addition to the Virage Logic product portfolio -- the Application Specific Intellectual Property (ASIP) product line -- at the DesignCon 2008 exhibition, to be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center on February 5-6, 2008. The company's ASIP product portfolio features the industry's most efficient Double Data Rate (DDR) memory interface solutions. These products meet the requirements for high performance, high bandwidth, low power, and low gate count designs across various market segments and applications.

DesignCon attendees will be able to learn more about Intelli(TM), Virage Logic's silicon-proven ASIP product line, which includes:

-- Intelli(TM) DDR -- a complete offering of DDR1, DDR2, DDR2/3 as well as MobileSDR and MobileDDR memory controllers

-- Intelli(TM) PHY+DLL -- the companion for Intelli DDR memory controllers that includes a physical layer (PHY), and delay locked loop (DLL) hard macro GDSII solution

-- Intelli(TM) Models -- flexible, independent simulation models to verify the functionality of an entire memory sub-system.

Virage Logic will be featuring a demo of the Intelli DDR solution at DesignCon in booth #725.

Virage Logic's Chief Marketing Officer, Pete Rodriguez, will be one of the featured panelists at DesignCon's executive business panel forum, "Managing Unit Costs: Methodologies and Processes to Lower Overall Chip Costs," being held Tuesday, February 5, 2008, from 8:30-10:00 a.m. For more information on the panel session, go to:

As the semiconductor industry's trusted IP partner, Virage Logic expanded its ability to address the company's target markets in the rapid development of System-on-Chip (SoC) integrated circuits (ICs) when it added the ASIP product line to its family of memory compilers, logic libraries and related development tools. Memory controllers play an important role in ICs involving external dynamic random access memory (DRAM). Key markets for this solution include data storage, enterprise networking, mobile, graphics and consumer electronics.

ASIP products are designed to meet the highest quality and performance standards for functional IP and contain application-specific functional IP targeted to a variety of market requirements. ASIP products are commonly based on Virage Logic's proprietary and patented logic libraries, memories, routing methodology, and cell architecture.
