MONROVIA, Calif. -- October 23, 2012

Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation for the design, layout and
verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), and Israeli
distributor New ARTech Technologies will hold a day-long conference on
micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) in Israel on 30 October 2012. This
conference will feature presentations by Tanner EDA customers and partners
along with briefs on Tanner EDA and SoftMEMS tools. SoftMEMS provides the CAD
design environment used for the development and test of MEMS products.

More MEMS designs are created with Tanner EDA tools than with any other EDA
tools. Six Tanner EDA customers will give presentations at the conference and
technical sessions will be held on Tanner EDA MEMS design tools and SoftMEMS
tools. Presenting companies include Israel MEMS House (IMH), Maradin, Rafael,
and TowerJazz along with Technion (Israel Institute of Technology) and Tel
Aviv University.

About SoftMEMS

SoftMEMS CAD Design Environment is used for the development and test of MEMS
products. The tools are open-platform software products that support leading
electronic design automation (EDA) environments used for integrated circuit
(IC) development. Their tools allow data sharing among system designers, IC
designers, process engineers and MEMS experts, permitting early and consistent
design checks among multidisciplinary teams and allowing designers to easily
develop new MEMS designs, integrate existing designs (intellectual property)
into systems, and couple them with electronics. SoftMEMS design tools include
MEMS Xplorer (for UNIX and HP platforms) and MEMS Pro (for the PC platform).

About New ARTech Technologies

New ARTech Technologies represents several semiconductor (system-on-chip,
FPGA, and ASIC) and system companies in Israel. Partners include companies
with solutions in intellectual property (IP) cores, EDA tools, design
services, precision navigation and power. Since 2003, New ARTech has been
helping to ensure that customers are fully equipped to meet their development
and production needs together with their business objectives. The company is
based in Herzelia Pituach, Israel.

About Tanner EDA

Tanner EDA provides a complete line of software solutions that catalyze
innovation for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal
(A/MS) integrated circuits (ICs) and MEMS. Customers are creating breakthrough
applications in areas such as power management, displays and imaging,
automotive, consumer electronics, life sciences, and RF devices. A low
learning curve, high interoperability, and a powerful user interface improve
design team productivity and enable a low total cost of ownership (TCO).
Capability and performance are matched by low support requirements and high
support capability as well as an ecosystem of partners that bring advanced
capabilities to A/MS designs.

Founded in 1988, Tanner EDA solutions deliver just the right mixture of
features, functionality and usability. The company has shipped over 33,000
licenses of its software to more than 5,000 customers in 67 countries.
