 FOLSOM, Calif., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Level One Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: LEVL) announced today that Moshe Mazin has been appointed vice president of engineering of this leading manufacturer of mixed- signal, application-specific standard integrated circuit products (ASSPs) for high-speed digital signal transmission and networking connectivity applications. Mazin will be responsible for the company's overall design, development and research activities.
 He brings 20 years of extensive engineering and management expertise in microchip circuit design and process development to Level One. He also has extensive knowledge of the development and application of design tools used in IC production.
 Most recently, Mazin served as an advanced technology program manager at Hewlett-Packard Corp., where he focused on mixed-signal technology and ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits).
 In the 1980's, he led advanced VSLI circuit design teams for General Electric's Research and Development Center, the Raytheon Microelectronic Center, and the HP/Apollo Computer.
 He invented and successfully marketed an advanced VLSI circuit design methodology, called the "Maze Matrix," as the founder and CEO of MAZE Technology Corp. From July 1991 to April 1992, Mazin was Northeast Area Technology Manager for LSI Logic. Over the years, Mazin has been awarded 15 patents and has an additional 26 patent applications pending approval. He has also been the recipient of outstanding inventor awards from both General Electric and Raytheon.
 "The addition of Moshe to Level One's executive staff will help the company maintain its leadership status in mixed-signal ASSP integrated circuits for transmission and networking," said Level One president and CEO Robert Pepper, Ph.D. "His combination of management and hands-on engineering experience will be particularly valuable in optimizing our new product development and introduction process."
 Level One's extensive ASSP product line targets significant segments of the communications connectivity market. The company has developed its own proprietary system simulation and testing software, and continues to add cells to its extensive circuit cell library.
 "Communications markets are often characterized by the short life span of products, and companies must work diligently to maintain leadership in product design and manufacture," said Mazin. "It is exciting to join an entrepreneurial company that is aggressively expanding in both domestic and global communications markets."
 Mazin earned an M.B.A. from Rensselaer Polytechnic School of Management, a master's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania's Moore School of Engineering and a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Delaware.
