TEXAS INSTRUMENTS JOINS VIEWLOGIC SYSTEMS, INC.'S SILICON DESIGN ALLIANCE; TI TO PACKAGE VIEWLOGIC TOOLS WITH ITS FPGA DESIGN KITS

 MARLBORO, Mass., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Viewlogic Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIEW) today announced that Texas Instruments (NYSE: TXN) (TI) has signed a multi-year agreement to package Viewlogic electronic design automation (EDA) tools with the TI field-programmable gate array (FPGA) development system.
 Under the agreement, TI's Semiconductor Group will resell tailored versions of selected Viewlogic tools through its worldwide sales and support network.
 "Texas Instruments is a significant addition to our blue chip roster of FPGA vendor partners," said Gene Robinson, Viewlogic's senior vice president of sales and marketing. "Ongoing involvement with companies such as TI is what has made Viewlogic a de-facto standard among FPGA designers worldwide."
 TI will package versions of Viewlogic's DOS- and UNIX-based ViewDraw(tm), ViewSim(tm), ViewGen(tm), and logic optimization/minimization tools with the TI TPC10 Series, TPC12 Series and future TI FPGA products. TI will also offer Viewlogic tools targeted toward specific user's needs and design flows.
 "As TI continues to provide higher performance FPGAs, software tools such as Viewlogic's become a key part of a total integrated solution," said Dave Sroka, TI's marketing manager for FPGA design tools. "Relationships like this between TI and Viewlogic allow TI to provide the silicon and tools necessary to help the FPGA designer take the next step toward logic integration."
 TI becomes the fifteenth member of Viewlogic's Silicon Design Alliance (SDA), a partnership program under which Viewlogic makes its tools available to FPGA vendors in specially priced design kits, restricted to each vendor's respective design libraries. Viewlogic offers an upgrade program to users who wish to include their FPGA designs in system-level simulations. The upgrade also enables the user to apply the tools to any IC, ASIC, PLD or system design project.
