DR. LEONARD LIU JOINS CADENCE AS CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER

 SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Cadence Design Systems Inc. (NYSE: CDN) announced today that Leonard Y. W. Liu has joined the company as chief operating officer. As chief operating officer, he will manage the company's technology development and operations organizations and will report directly to Cadence's president and chief executive office, Joseph B. Costello.
 "Leonard is an extremely valuable addition to our management team," said Costello, "because he has both a strong technology background and broad executive management experience. This unique blend of expertise is exactly what we need in an executive to help us successfully drive the delivery of design solutions to our technologically complex and dynamic marketplace."
 Liu started his career with 20 years at IBM. Half of this time was spent in research where he was instrumental in the development and acceptance of SQL as the defacto industry standard in relational database languages. He then managed different large worldwide businesses within IBM including System Communications, Office Systems and Programmable Workstations and Database Systems and Languages. From 1989 to 1992, Liu was president of ACER Inc., a one-billion-dollar personal computer company. Liu has a doctorate in computer sciences from Princeton University.
 "Leonard has played an active role on our board for the last three years, and, in fact, has been working full-time as a consultant with us since last October," continued Costello. "With his broad knowledge base, I am excited to have Leonard helping guide Cadence as we continue our transition from a tools to a solutions-focused company."
 Reporting to Liu will be all technology development operations including solutions for IC (digital and analog), systems, HDL (Hardware Description Language) design and frameworks. He will also be responsible for operations including manufacturing.
 "As a result of these changes, Jeffrey A. Miller, who has served as president of the CAE division since 1991, has decided to leave the company," said Costello. "We appreciate his contributions to Cadence and wish him well."
 Communications, finance, human resources, sales and service will continue to report directly to Costello.
