QUICKTURN DESIGN SYSTEMS AWARDED $3.5 MILLION CONTRACT BY SUN MICROSYSTEMS; SUN EXPANDS USE OF EMULATION IN DESIGN PROCESS

 MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Quickturn Design Systems today announced that Sun Microsystems Computer Corporation has purchased $3.5 million of emulation systems. The emulation systems will be provided for multiple projects including next-generation workstations and microprocessors.
 "Quickturn's products shortened development schedules and improved product quality on our first development project using emulation," said Howard Lee, vice president of engineering in Sun's SPARC technology division. "On that project, we found a few software bugs and hardware problems that would have required additional development. Consequently, emulation saved substantial development time. We were running multi- user UNIX and OpenWindows one month before first silicon was available. Therefore, when we did receive silicon, our software was already debugged and ready to go."
 "We are extremely pleased with the success that Sun had on its first major emulation project," said Keith Lobo, Quickturn's CEO and president. "Through emulation, Sun can now tackle more of these major product development efforts simultaneously. And these new systems will move emulation into the mainstream of their engineering development process."
