Apache Achieves Record Q2 Sales and Signs Major Partnership Deal for 45nm Designs

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 12, 2006— Apache Design Solutions, the technology leader in full-chip dynamic power and noise solutions for system-on-chip (SoC) designs, today announced that the company has achieved 14th consecutive quarter of record sales while maintaining profitability. Apache continues to add new customers, and now seven of the top ten fabless semiconductor companies have adopted Apache's power and noise sign-off solutions. In addition, Apache expanded business and signed a broad technology partnership with a major semiconductor company to address the upcoming 45nm challenges in the areas of power, noise, and system-level integrity.

"Apache continues to lead the market in providing dynamic power integrity solutions, as more top semiconductor companies incorporate our power closure solutions into their production flow," stated Craig Shirley, vice president for worldwide sales. "This continued investment by our customers demonstrates that Apache is providing an accurate, efficient and robust methodology to meet their SoC design requirements."

"As customers move towards 65 and 45nms, we are pleased to see that they have chosen Apache as their technology partner for managing the upcoming challenges for power, noise, and timing," stated Andrew Yang, CEO of Apache. "With our technology leadership, strong customer support, and product roadmap, we are poised to deliver a complete platform to address the silicon integrity sign-off needs."

Apache will be demonstrating their power integrity and noise management solutions, at the upcoming Design Automation Conference (DAC) in San Francisco, California, July 24 - 27, in booth #1906.

About RedHawk

RedHawk is a full-chip Vectorless Dynamic(TM) physical power integrity solution for SoC power closure sign-off of 130nm, 90nm, and 65nm designs. Certified by TSMC's 5.0 and 6.0 Reference Flow and correlated with silicon measurements and SPICE, RedHawk addresses dynamic power issues such as simultaneous switching output (SSO) for core, memory, clock, and I/O, as well as effects of on-chip inductance, package RLC, and decoupling capacitance. RedHawk delivers transistor-level accuracy with cell-based capacity, performance, and ease-of-use.

With RedHawk designers can identify dynamic "hot spots," examine the impact on timing, accurately pinpoint the cause of dynamic voltage drop, and automatically repair the source of supply noise. RedHawk enables designers to reach power closure sign-off for high performance SoCs, including those utilizing advanced low-power design techniques such as leakage current control, MTCMOS (power-gating), multiple voltage domains, and multiple threshold transistors.

About Apache Design Solutions

Apache is an EDA software supplier of innovative next-generation silicon integrity platforms for low-power, high-performance system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs. By considering all sources of noise that impacts the design, such as power, signal, package / system IO, substrate, and temperature, Apache's silicon signoff platform enables designers of leading networking, wireless, communication, consumer, and semiconductor companies to detect, fix, and prevent design weaknesses that can result in reduced yield or failed silicon. Apache's vendor neutral platform enables designers to adopt any industry's standard physical design flow and is certified by TSMC's 5.0 and 6.0 Reference Flow (NYSE:TSM). Apache has direct sales and support offices worldwide with over 40 customers, including 7 of the top 10 semiconductor companies. For more information, visit www.apache-da.com.
