Imagination CEO Hossein Yassaie to Deliver Keynote at SNUG Silicon Valley

Synopsys Users Group Attendees to Gain Insights Into the Impact of Silicon IP
on SoC Design

LONDON, March 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Imagination Technologies (LSE:IMG),
a leading multimedia, processor, communications and cloud technologies
company, announces that its CEO Hossein Yassaie will deliver the Tuesday
morning keynote address at the upcoming Synopsys Users Group (SNUG™) Silicon
Valley conference. Yassaie will present, "From Crystal Ball to Reality – The
Impact of Silicon IP on SoC Design," at 9:00 a.m. on 26^th March, at the Santa
Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California.

Says Yassaie: "I am delighted to be invited by Synopsys to present the keynote
at its highly-regarded SNUG event. SoCs have transformed the electronics
industry, integrating a wide array of functionality and extreme performance
into cost-effective, low-power platforms. At the same time, the silicon IP
industry has emerged to supply many major functional blocks on today's SoCs. I
will discuss how IP helps designers translate vision into reality, and explore
the future of SoC design, where the GPU is the new driving force for modern
applications, design methodologies and process technologies, and heterogeneous
processing is transforming the way SoCs handle key user applications."

Says Antun Domic, senior vice president, Implementation Group, Synopsys: "Now
in its 22^nd year, SNUG brings together more than 9,000 Synopsys tool and
technology users through its conferences worldwide, and it has grown to be
Silicon Valley's largest technical conference. We invited Hossein to speak
this year because of his vision and innovation. The use of IP is becoming
increasingly important in terms of meeting time-to-market and design
complexity requirements. We look forward to what is certain to be a compelling
keynote from Hossein that will provide valuable insights for our user
