 CADENCE SELECTED BY SONY FOR MAJOR
 ELECTRONIC DESIGN CONSULTING CONTRACT
 Separate Agreement Includes Purchase of IC and
 Analog Design Environments
 SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Cadence Design Systems Inc. (NYSE: CDN), based here, today announced a three-year Electronic Design Automation (EDA) consulting agreement with Sony Corp. of Tokyo. Cadence's Consulting Services will help Sony define and implement new, advanced methodologies for the design of integrated circuits (ICs), integrating both Sony's internal as well as third-party tools.
 The contract is the result of a 12-month relationship between Sony and Cadence's Consulting Services, characterized by the initiation of two pilot projects which focused on developing and implementing design productivity enhancements.
 Separately, Sony purchased Cadence's analog and IC design automation environments. Products include the Analog Artist(TM) Design System, a complete front-to-back solution for the production of analog ICs, the Verilog-XL(TM) digital logic simulator, plus a complete set of Cadence's digital IC tools. Cadence also expects that Sony will migrate its existing design environment to Cadence's Design Framework II(TM).
 "Our partnership with Sony represents the business model for design automation in the 1990s," stated Bob Moore, vice president of Consulting Services. "Our value added to Sony is not only our design automation tools but the expertise and resources within our consulting services team. This combination is the blueprint for successful EDA companies today."
 The contract calls for engineering staff exchanges, joint project management, cooperative research and shared technology development. Consulting Services has assigned a full-time program manager to ensure the success of this partnership.
