VIEWLOGIC RECEIVES $300,000 ORDER FOR DESIGN TOOLS FROM SENSIS CORP.
MARLBORO, Mass., March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Viewlogic Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIEW) today announced it received a $300,000 order from Sensis Corporation (DeWitt, N.Y.) for multiple copies of its Powerview(R) and Workview(R) electronic design automation (EDA) software. Sensis, a radar and systems engineering company, will use the Viewlogic tools to design an upgraded radar system for a branch of the United States armed forces. "With our new Viewlogic EDA solution, we'll use Sun workstations and industry-standard personal computers to design about 25 complex, high- density printed circuit boards over the next six months," said Charles Clarkson, Sensis' manager of operations. "Viewlogic tools give us high performance capabilities and the flexibility to use different computing platforms for various parts of the job." Sensis will integrate its Viewlogic EDA software with layout and drawing tools from Racal-Redac and Parametric Technologies. "Viewlogic's open design environment makes it easy to integrate multiple vendors' tools, which is essential for us," Clarkson said. The Viewlogic solution Sensis bought includes tools for design entry and simulation, ASIC and PLD design, and standard design model libraries and interfaces. Powerview is Viewlogic's high-performance, UNIX-based design tool suite and framework. It embodies Viewlogic's long-standing commitment to creating an "open" design environment by adhering to industry standards, such as the CAD Framework Initiative's newly-announced CFI 1.0 specification; Powerview supports the greatest number of CFI compliant modules within a commercially available product. Adhering to industry standards makes it possible for users to mix and match tools from different vendors, so they can create a "best-of-breed" EDA solution that meets their particular needs. Founded in 1985, Sensis Corporation employs a staff of over 80 preeminent systems and design engineers, who have played lead roles in the development and test of some of the world's most modern air surveillance radars. Viewlogic Systems, Inc., founded in 1984, is a worldwide supplier of electronic design automation solutions. Viewlogic's software for UNIX- and DOS-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. -0- 3/22/93 /CONTACT: Patrick Pecorelli of Viewlogic Systems, Inc., 508-480-0881/ (VIEW)
