  Aldec and NEC Corp. Ink Distributorship Agreement for CyberWorkBench®
  ASIC/FPGA High Level Synthesis Solution

Business Wire

HENDERSON, Nev. -- July 31, 2013

Aldec, Inc., a pioneer in mixed HDL language simulation and hardware-assisted
verification solutions for system and ASIC designs, today unveils a new
partnership with NEC Corporation, Japan. Under the terms of the agreement,
Aldec has acquired distributorship rights for CyberWorkBench®, a
well-established High Level Synthesis solution.

“Aldec has been a trusted name in the EDA industry for 30 years. Combining
high level synthesis technology from NEC with Aldec’s verification ecosystem
provides designers a full solution for SoC design and validation,” said
Kazutoshi Wakabayashi, Senior Expert, Embedded System Solutions Business
Center and Green Platform Research Laboratories, NEC.

While traditional hardware design involves RTL development and debugging, the
increase in the complexity of today’s designs renders the traditional approach
too time consuming and error prone. Where the entire focus of designing
hardware is shifted from traditional RTL method to a higher abstraction level,
development time and cost savings can be significant.

“CyberWorkBench generates high quality RTL implementation from a high level
algorithmic description, and thus avoids manual RTL processing that requires
long iterations in design cycles,” said Satyam Jani, Aldec Product Manager.
“Automating the RTL generation process allows faster turnaround time for
complex designs and increases the productivity by 2x-3x.”

About CyberWorkBench®

CyberWorkBench is an “All-in-C” synthesis and verification tool developed by
NEC over a period of 20 years. The C-based flow in the solution supports both
controller and data path modules and allows designers to achieve higher design
efficiency, low area and high performance for ASIC and FPGA chips. Along with
a behavioral synthesizer, simulator and formal verifier it also includes:

  *Support for both control dominated circuits and datapath modules
  *Dedicated technology support for Altera® & Xilinx® FPGAs
  *Best-in-class High-Level Synthesizer that features automatic pipelining,
    power optimization, powerful parallelism extraction
  *Powerful graphical analysis capabilities for synthesized circuits
  *C-based Formal Verification using assertions and properties
  *Automatic top level structural description generator to connect C-based
    modules and legacy RTL modules
  *Powerful SystemC source code debugger
  *Legacy/IP RTL code to SystemC converter for easier migration to C-based
    design flow


CyberWorkBench is available today for use with commercially-available
Windows/Linux-based operating systems. For more information, white paper and
