Virtual Silicon's Mobilize Named as Finalist for DesignCon Design Vision Award; Industry-Leading Power Management IP Recognized as a Significant Product Innovation

SUNNYVALE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Dec. 16, 2004— Mobilize(TM), the industry-leading power management IP from Virtual Silicon Technology Inc., was named as a finalist for a DesignCon DesignVision Award in the Semiconductor and IC products category. The winners of the DesignVision Awards will be announced on February 1, 2005 at the DesignCon show in Santa Clara, CA.

"In 2004, Mobilize provided SoC designers a significant advance in the arena of low-power semiconductor IP," said Barry Hoberman, CEO of Virtual Silicon. "As the market for power-conscious applications such as PDAs, cell phones and MP3 players continues to grow, SoC designers need to actively push the envelope of low power design. Virtual Silicon's Mobilize product line has helped create the industry's first high-performance, low-power semiconductor IP."

The Mobilize Power Management IP platform provides an adaptive, dynamically configurable solution for reducing both static and dynamic power in 130nm SoC. Virtual Silicon's patent-pending Gate Bias(TM) technology is the key element within Mobilize. With Gate Bias, the leakage-power of an SoC is reduced by over 99% on a standard 130nm process (generic) with little sacrifice to the performance or area of the SoC. By implementing dynamic voltage and frequency scaling SoC can achieve dynamic power reductions of up to 80%.
