ZYCAD ANNOUNCES NEW AGREEMENTS WITH SYNOPSYS

 ZYCAD ANNOUNCES NEW AGREEMENTS WITH SYNOPSYS
 MENLO PARK, Calif., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Zycad Corp.(R)


(NASDAQ: ZCAD) today announced an agreement with Synopsys Inc. to remove the VHDL non-compete provision from the October, 1990, VHDL asset purchase agreement. Zycad, as a result, will be able to further its business objective of partnering with all Electronic Design Automation (EDA) vendors and fully serve the entire VHDL market with current and future acceleration products, technology and service offerings. In return, Synopsys will receive certain considerations from Zycad. Closing is expected to occur in March 1992.
 The consideration paid to Synopsys includes a return of 100,000 shares of the 246,591 shares of Synopsys common stock received under the original agreement and a waiver of potential royalty payments due Zycad from Synopsys.
 The companies have also separately executed a Letter of Intent for a Value Added Reseller (VAR) agreement for certain Zycad acceleration products and an interface development between Synopsys' VHDL System Simulator (VSS) and Zycad's future accelerator products.
 "Zycad's XP Family of Simulation Accelerators have emerged as the industry standard platform for acceleration," stated Phillips W. Smith, president and CEO of Zycad Corp. "We expect that current and planned product and service offerings will enable us to maintain our simulation acceleration industry leadership, increase our market penetration and allow us to achieve the broadest possible distribution across all channels in the VHDL market.
 "We look forward to a continued strong and growing business relationship with Synopsys," added Smith. "Our products are very complementary and the combination provides significant benefits to VHDL users."
 Synopsys and Zycad had previously announced a development effort for a transparent mixed-level simulation interface between Synopsys' VSS Simulator and Zycad's XP Family of Simulation Accelerators. The interface has been in Beta test since September 1991, and will be shipped to customers in late January.
 Separate and apart from this agreement, Zycad indends to offer 46,591 shares as part of Synopsys' planned IPO (Initial Public Offering), which Synopsys announced today, and will then hold 100,000 shares of Synopsys common stock after the IPO.
 Zycad Corp., located in Menlo Park, is the leader in the design, development and marketing of logic and fault simulation acceleration products used for the design of single and multi-ASIC to complete electronic systems. In addition, Protocol, a division of Zycad in Mount Olive, N.J., provides system engineering services to the Federal Government and commercial companies. Zycad has offices worldwide and is traded on the OTC under the symbol ZCAD.
