TOKYO -- December 19, 2013

THine Electronics, Inc. (JASDAQ:6769), the global leader in high-speed serial
interface and provider of mixed-signal LSI, today announced the availability
of prototyping solution which enables THine’s V-by-One^® HS interface to link
Synopsys’ HAPS FPGA-based prototyping system. Jointly developed with Gigafirm,
one of Gold Members of Synopsys’ third party vender program, the solution now
provides connecting adapters between evaluation boards of V-by-One^® HS
products and high-performance HAPS system.

As a global leader providing software, IP and services used to accelerate
innovation in chips and electronic systems, Synopsys has been delivering
FPGA-based prototyping systems to hardware and software engineers for over 10
years and six hardware platform generations.

Synopsys’ HAPS (High-performance ASIC Prototyping Systems) family of products
provides an integrated and scalable hardware-software solution leveraged by
design and verification teams to improve their ASIC design schedules and avoid
costly device re-spins. The new V-by-One^® HS adopter empowers HAPS system by
making prototype bring-up easier, enabling reduction of turn-around-time
during development of high-definition systems such as 4K2K TVs with V-by-One^®
HS technology.

HAPS Overview

The Synopsys FPGA-based prototyping solution consists of a suite of modular,
easy-to-use products for ASIC and SoC prototyping that include HAPS hardware
components supported by an integrated software tool flow for design planning,
FPGA synthesis, and debug.

HAPS-Developer eXpress (HAPS-DX) Series

Uses Xilinx Virtex^®-7 FPGAs for capacity up to 4 million ASIC gates. The
HAPS-DX Series combines hardware and software automation to make system
bring-up as quick and easy as possible with a flexible I/O interface
architecture to support Synopsys HapsTrak 3 and industry standard FPGA
Mezzanine Card (FMC) formats.

HAPS-70 Series

Uses Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGAs for capacity up to 144 million ASIC gates. The
HAPS-70 Series has the most automation, advanced design planning and SoC
validation options commercially available.
