Quantum-SI Nominated for DesignVision Award

Maynard, MA -- December 10, 2004 - Signal Integrity Software, Inc. (SiSoft™) today announced that its new Quantum-SI™ product family was nominated for DesignCon's new DesignVision Award, which will be presented to the winner at DesignCon West 2005. Quantum-SI is targeted for mainstream engineers and high-end signal integrity engineers alike. DesignCon attendees will be able to view some of the latest Quantum-SI features that are redefining the standards for high-speed analysis.

"Some of our early Quantum-SI beta customers have really been blown away by its advanced capabilities and comparative ease-of-use," said Barry Katz, president and CTO of SiSoft. "Our Quantum-SI product development team was elated to hear that our new product had been nominated for the DesignVision Award. The recent release of our new family of integrated signal integrity and timing analysis products culminates several years of dedicated work by our entire team."

Warren Hayden, vice president of SiSoft's product group echoed SiSoft's excitement, "It's very exciting to see Quantum-SI receive recognition for its advanced feature set and differentiating value. Our goal is to leapfrog the competition and establish a solid leadership position in the high-end signal integrity analysis market. Once we have established dominance in the high-end market, we will push down into the mainstream, offering much more value at a lower cost than our competition. We will continue to provide leading edge innovation, while aggressively pursuing ease-of-use as a means to package more complex functionality to win over the mainstream engineer."
