TOKYO -- January 9, 2013

Jedat Inc. (headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, president & CEO: Kazuyuki Kawauchi,
"Jedat")(JASDAQ:3841) today announced to provide a high accuracy and high
speed circuit simulator "Cforce" for custom/analog LSI design.

The outstanding feature of Cforce, originally developed based on Jedat's
leading-edge simulation technology, is high speed performance and large scale
processing. Cforce's advanced circuit simulation engine with multi-threading
technology enables increased speed, accuracy and capacity, allowing users to
reduce design and verification costs as they make smaller, faster.

Due to the balance of speed, accuracy, and cost, Cforce provides a high cost
performance while maintaining the accuracy and compatibility with third-party
simulators, enabling customers to obtain a cost performance of 20 - 30X by
just replacing the circuit simulators that are currently in use.

■ Technology Features:

• Easy integration into existing flows by its guaranteed compatibility with
third-party simulators

• Integrated with C3(CircuitCube) circuit design environment

• Increases simulation accuracy with proprietary high accuracy solver

• Pseudo-transientanalysis method makes possible high convergence

• Best-in-class performance (2 to 3X faster than third-party simulators)

• Multithread technology increases performance and shortens verification

• Supports industry-standard netlist formats

• Standard output formats for data analysis

• Ensures compatibility with third-party simulators for I/O format, main
analysis feature, model, and analysis result

• Supports Verilog-A (Verilog-AMS LRMV2.2)

• Performs DC, transient, AC and Monte Carlo analysis

■ Examples of Effective Circuit Verification Approaches by Cforce's high
performance engine:

• Exhaustive variability verification technique for circuit characteristics

By executing parallel verification using a large amount of simulators, it
allows designers to analyze circuits by a sufficient combination of PVT
conditions not only corner PVT conditions to obtain a more accurate analysis

• Analysis engine for commercial optimization tools

■ About Jedat Inc.
Jedat offers the custom LSI design environment "Alpha-SX series" that
automates custom LSI design such as analog LSI, power device, LCD driver and
memory. With the floor plan function (hierarchical operation, pin assignment,
and power supply and bus routing, etc.) and the automatic placement and
routing tool for custom layout, Alpha-SX has brought significant improvement
to the area where the automation was difficult so far. All of the tools are
integrated in the constraint driven environment, and they provide a result in
accumulation and reusing the design know-how. Distribution partners are
located in Seoul (Korea), Beijing and Shanghai (China), Hsinchu (Taiwan) and
the U.S. West Coast. These partners provide the same experienced customer
support as Jedat offers in Japan.
