THIRD ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL DESIGN COMPETITION AWARDS PRIZES TONIGHT

THIRD ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL DESIGN COMPETITION AWARDS PRIZES TONIGHT
    RADNOR, Pa., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Winning entries in Design '91, the Third Annual International Design Award competition, will be announced at an awards ceremony slated for tonight (Nov. 19) from 5 to 7 p.m. at the San Francisco Marriott, Golden Gate Room C.
    The contest is sponsored by Chilton Company's Electronic Component News (ECN) and CAD Software, Inc. of Littleton, Mass.
    William Sobolewski, president of CAD Software, Inc., will present the first prize of $10,000 cash to Zofcom, Inc. for its "Tongue Touch Keypad & Control System."  The system enables the estimated 2 million quadriplegics (worldwide) to control lights, television, telephone, bed controller and wheelchair controller with computer keys housed in an orthodontic retainer together with a battery operated transmitter.  Ric Barline, chief executive officer of Zofcom, Inc., is seeking additional capital to expand production in order to meet existing product demand.
    The second prize of CAD Software's "PADS 2000 High Performance Design System," valued at $6,995 will be awarded by Sobolewski to Chip Gracey, vice president of Parallax, Inc. of Citrus Heights, Calif., for its PIC Programmer/Emulator, Assembler, Programmer and Emulator for "PIC" Microcontrollers produced by Microchip Technology.  These low-cost tools reduce the cost of using this inexpensive part, which contains a CPU, PROM, RAM, I/O and on-chip watchdog.
    The third prize of CAD Software's PAK 1 and PADS Logic packages valued at $1,945 will be presented to Ronald A. Brown, vice president of engineering, and Thomas Hembree, senior design engineer of Phoenix Digital Corporation of Scottsdale, Ariz.  Their prize-winning product is a Universal Optical Communication Modem which applies fiber optic modem technology in a communication networking environment.
    The judges for Design '91 are:
    -- Ken Finster is president and founder of Micro/Sys, Inc., an independent manufacturer of board and system level products in Glendale, Calif.
    -- Dr. Christopher Malinowski is one of the founders of Intellikey Corp., where he serves as the R&D vice president.
    -- Kurt Priester is the president and founder of Computer Dynamics in Greer, S.C.

    -- Sam Young is director of Worldwide Memory Research for Dataquest's Semiconductor group.
    "ECN is very pleased to be working with CAD Software on Design '91," said Hy Natkin, editor-in-chief.  "Their support of this competition is commendable.  Design '91 is important," he continued, "because it encourages and recognizes creativity in design, and gives engineers and designers an excellent opportunity to bring their ideas before a panel of industry experts."
