AmberWave Systems Corporation's Researcher is Winner of IEEE Electron Devices Society Award.

SALEM, N.H. -- AmberWave Systems Corporation, the semiconductor industry's leading developer of intellectual property relating to strained silicon technology, announced today that Dr. Zhi-Yuan Charles Cheng, Manager of Emerging Technologies at AmberWave Systems, was named the winner of the IEEE Electron Devices Society's George E. Smith Award.

"We are pleased that our researchers continue to be on the leading edge of technology development and are being recognized by their peers as top contributors to the semiconductor industry," said AmberWave Systems' CEO, Richard Faubert.

The award recognizes Dr. Cheng as lead author on a paper resulting from collaboration between AmberWave and MIT showing research on super-critical thickness strained-silicon-on-insulator for partially depleted device applications. Dr. Cheng will receive the award at the Plenary Session of 52nd annual IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting, the world's premier forum for the presentation of advances in microelectronic and nanoelectronic devices, in Washington, D.C. on December 6, 2005.

Dr. Cheng holds an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, a PhD from the National University of Singapore in Electrical Engineering, and completed post-doctoral work in material science at MIT. Dr. Cheng's research has contributed 15 issued and pending patents to AmberWave's extensive patent portfolio.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. is a leading authority in technical areas relating to computer engineering, biomedical technology and telecommunications, electric power, aerospace and consumer electronics.

About AmberWave

AmberWave Systems Corporation ( leads the semiconductor industry in developing and licensing intellectual property critical to the technology for manufacturing strained silicon and other advanced semiconductor materials and semiconductor devices. The Company's strained silicon technology incorporates more than 10 years of research from MIT, AT&T Bell Labs, and ongoing research at its own facilities in the next generation of semiconductor materials, including in the area of III-V compounds.
