  1. Patras, Greece – February 28th, 2008 – Think Silicon Ltd, a design
    services and IP core provider company introduces an IP Partnership
    programme through the on-line IPGenius parametrization platform. Think
    Silicon targets captive IP in companies and contractors who have no IP
    business model and can provide them with additional revenues by
    commercializing internal IP designs to market.
    Think Silicon, located in Patras, Greece was founded in 2007 with the
    aim to provide ESL system level design solutions via web-based IP and
    system level configuration tools. The company provides fabless
    semiconductor companies and integrated device manufacturers a solution
    to immediately obtain cores and subsystems tailored to their needs
    without spending time and effort customizing them to suit their application.

    The IP Partnership programme is aimed towards companies and contractors
    who have developed cores for internal use, but are unable or unwilling
    to sell and support their designs in the market. Think Silicon works
    closely with those companies to allow them to commercialize their
    designs by utilizing the IPGenius platform API and providing them with
    live usage status. Furthermore, a clear and transparent business model
    is provided where IPs are obtained in source code form with simple
    licensing terms and an online IP shop to facilitate the ordering process.

    “We believe there is a lot of core competency in companies and
    contractors who develop cores for internal use, but these valuable
    designs never reach the open market. We work closely with them to bring
    IPs up to quality and configurability standards that are expected in the
    market.” said Dr. Iakovos Stamoulis, Director of Technology of Think

    “Think Silicon's solution allowed us to leverage our internal IP to
    higher level of configurability, generate additional revenues and
    provided us with a transparent interface towards licensees of our
    design.” said E. Mariatos, CEO of Diaplous Ltd, a Machine Vision
    solution provider and an IP Partner of Think Silicon.

    Independent contractors who have retained rights to their designs are
    also welcomed to join the programme and benefit from joint marketing

    "The IP Partnership program made it possible to commercialize advanced
    research in Galois Field Arithmetic. Chip designers will no longer be
    constrained by a lack understanding of this esoteric branch of
    mathematics which is the foundation of commercial coding and
    cryptography algorithms. The IPGenius generator creates the Galois Field
    hardware for you" said Rajesh Pathak, an independent contractor.

    IPGenius portfolio of IP is extended with a Multichannel DMA Engine
    Think IP core, a CMOS Camera Sensor Interface, a Galois Field Multiplier
    and a JTAG TAP Boundary wrapper provided by external companies and
    contractors. For further information visit Think Silicon at DATE'08
    Conference & Exhibition, 11-13th March, Munich, Germany (Booth C2) or

    About IPGenius
    IPGenius is an on-line tool for the generation of parametrisable IP
    modules that can be used in Semiconductor devices. This tool allows the
    generation of custom-made IP modules from a selection of modules that
    can be customised according to users' requirements, packaged and
    delivered to the end-user via the internet. The tool hosts a rapidly
    expanding portfolio of proprietary and partner Semiconductor IP (SIP)
    modules, that can be parametrized to user requirements from an easy to
    use Graphical web interface. It is available by visiting
