MOTOROLA INKS COMPILER DEVELOPMENT PACT WITH DIAB DATA

 MOTOROLA INKS COMPILER DEVELOPMENT PACT WITH DIAB DATA
 AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola's High Performance


Microprocessor Division today announced the signing of a comprehensive compiler development agreement with Diab Data, Inc. to enhance Diab's suite of C and Fortran compiler technologies for Motorola's 68040 product line.
 Under the terms of the agreement, Diab Data will provide advanced compiler optimizations that will boost the overall performance of the 68040 by more than 20 percent. Compiler optimizations are techniques used to help reduce the overall size and increase the efficiency of a computer software program during the compilation process. This agreement enables 68000 Family developers to maximize microprocessor performance, streamline program execution to improve system speeds and efficiency, and reduce software development time and costs.
 The agreement specifies the D-CC and D-F77, C and Fortran compilers to be hosted on several native 68040 development systems as well as on industry-standard cross-development systems, such as the IBM PC and Sun's SPARCstation(tm), popular in embedded processing software development. Users include developers in both the embedded and workstation markets.
 "This agreement formalizes a successful relationship that spans over five years and brings to the marketplace the first truly high- performance C and Fortran compilers for the 68040," said Jim Reinhart, Motorola's manager of M68000 marketing and applications.
 Diab Data's California-based Advanced Compiler Group introduced the first commercially available 88110 C compiler in early 1991.
 According to Sven Brehmer, president of Diab Data, Inc., "The outstanding success of the RISC project and our proven CISC compiler technology forms the cornerstone of our excellent relationship with Motorola. This agreement opens new channels for us with current and potential Motorola customers who will benefit from an advanced, highly- reliable suite of compilers."
 Diab Data will develop and market the products, and the compiler for native 68040 development systems is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of this year. The cross-development compilers are scheduled for the first quarter 1993.
 Diab Data, Inc. is located in Foster City, Calif., with corporate headquarters in Taby, Sweden. Diab Data AB, founded in 1970 and active in the U.S. since 1981, is Scandinavia's leading supplier of UNIX minicomputers and real-time software. Sales for 1990 exceeded US $44 million. Diab Data's Advanced Compiler Group, established in 1985, designs and licenses UNIX and PC cross-development tools and languages that reduce time-to-market and applications development costs.
 Having 1991 worldwide sales exceeding $3.6 billion, Motorola's Semiconductor Products Sector is the largest U.S.-based broad line supplier of semiconductors, with a balanced portfolio of more than 50,000 devices. Motorola is one of the world's leading providers of electronic equipment, systems, components and services for global markets. Products include two-way radios, pagers and telepoint systems, cellular telephone systems, semiconductors, defense and aerospace electronics, automotive and industrial electronic equipment, computers, data communications, and information processing and handling equipment.
 Motorola was a winner of the first Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 1988, in recognition of its superior company-wide quality management process.
