VIEWLOGIC AWARDS $3 MILLION GRANT TO GEORGIA TECH RESEARCH INSTITUTE

 MARLBORO, Mass., Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Viewlogic Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIEW) today announced it has awarded a major grant of electronic design automation (EDA) software, valued at $3 million, to the Georgia Institute of Technology.
 The grant, issued under Viewlogic's worldwide University Program, will be used by Georgia Tech's Research Institute (GTRI) to develop advanced electronics, including programmable logic devices (PLDs) and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
 In all Viewlogic is equipping 36 engineering workstations with its standards-compliant EDA framework, OpenFrame(TM), and powerful design tools from its UNIX-based Powerview(R) product family.
 GTRI first became familiar with Viewlogic at a technical conference last year, according to Neil Lareau, a research engineer in GTRI's Electronics Systems Laboratory. "Everybody doing good work there had high praise for Viewlogic tools," said Lareau. "Naturally, I was thrilled for GTRI to be the recipient of such a substantial offering from Viewlogic."
 "We're planning designs now with 50 megahertz clock speeds and more. The design tools we had before just weren't up to the task. With Viewlogic, we can easily tackle those high complexity projects," Lareau added.
 In addition to performing contract development work, largely for the U.S. Department of Defense, GTRI will put its Viewlogic tools in the hands of more than 100 electrical engineering students each year.
 "Training the designers of tomorrow on Viewlogic tools today seeds our future market," said Gene Robinson, senior vice president of marketing and sales for Viewlogic. "The 36 seats we've provided to GTRI to date are only the beginning. We're exploring similar opportunities with other groups at Georgia Tech."
 The Georgia Research Institute is a nonprofit, client-oriented, applied research organization and an integral part of the Georgia Institute of Technology. It conducts investigations in engineering, science, computer technology, and economic development for a diversity of sponsors including federal, state, and local governmental agencies, industrial firms, and private organizations.
 The GTRI staff represents most of the recognized fields of engineering, physical science and technology, with a full-time staff of approximately 1,300 persons, more than 600 of whom are research faculty and 300 are full-time support staff.
 Founded in 1984, Viewlogic Systems, Inc. is a worldwide supplier of electronic design automation solutions. Viewlogic's software for UNIX- and DOS/Windows-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.
