 DIGITAL STANDARDIZES ON VIEWLOGIC'S VIEWPLD:
 DIGITAL PURCHASES COULD EXCEED $3 MILLION OVER NEXT 2 YEARS
 MARLBORO, Mass., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Viewlogic Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: VIEW) announced today that Digital Equipment Corp. (NYSE: DEC) has chosen Viewlogic's PLD design environment to be the tool of choice for the design of programmable components at Digital. In addition to ViewPLD(tm), Digital is a major user of Viewlogic's family of electronic design tools. Digital purchases of Viewlogic's electronic design software could exceed $3 million over the next two years.
 "Digital does so many designs that it is essential that we have a tool that meets the stringent requirements of our engineering organization. A tool must be easy to use, well supported, and technologically superior. Viewlogic's ViewPLD meets all these requirements," said Maurizio Contini, manager of Digital's ASIC design center in Franklin, Mass.
 "Digital's decision to standardize on ViewPLD is another indication of Viewlogic's continued success in the increasingly competitive electronic design automation market. By delivering easy to use, industry-leading products that solve today's design engineering problems, Viewlogic is continuing to grow faster than the market and significantly faster than our larger competitors," said Mike Emley, Viewlogic's vice president of marketing.
 ViewPLD is a complete design system for all phases of PLD design and verification. ViewPLD allows a designer to import data from all existing PLD design methodologies including ABEL, JEDEC and gate level PLD descriptions, then generate full timing VHDL models for PLD simulation and documentation. ViewPLD is integrated into Viewlogic's Powerview design environment, allowing users to design, simulate, synthesize and retarget full system designs. Digital uses ViewPLD and a wide variety of other Viewlogic tools to develop products such as workstations, servers and peripherals.
 "In the last several years, Viewlogic has become a significant supplier of electronic design automation tools for Digital and we see that relationship continuing and flourishing as Viewlogic and Digital move forward as partners," said Don Jenkins, director of Digital's Electronic Industry Business Unit, "Viewlogic's recent commitment to support Digital's ALPHA AXP(tm) is another indication of the strengthening relationship between the two companies."
 Founded in 1984, Viewlogic Systems, Inc. is a worldwide supplier of electronic design automation solutions. Viewlogic's software for UNIX- and DOS-based computing platforms, combined with its broad range of support services, enables electrical engineers to design state-of-the- art electronic products more efficiently, reducing development cost and speeding time to market. The company, whose common stock is publicly traded on NASDAQ under the symbol VIEW, had 1991 revenues of $42.1 million, up 38 percent compared to 1990. For the first nine months of 1992, Viewlogic reported revenues of $39.4 million, an increase of 33 percent over the same period last year.
