Sony Selects Denali PureSpec PCI Express Verification IP for SxS PRO Memory Card

High-Quality Verification IP Solution Brings Industry's Fastest New Memory Card to Professional Camcorder Market

PALO ALTO, Calif., November 27, 2007 - Denali Software, Inc., (hereafter Denali), a world-leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), today announced that Sony Corporation (hereafter Sony) used its PureSpec(TM) PCI Express (PCIe) verification intellectual property (VIP) product to verify their high-speed SxS PRO(TM) memory card design for compliance to the PCIe standard, and its interoperability with other PCIe implementations. Sony's verification engineers adopted Denali PureSpec PCIe VIP for its high-quality and seamless integration into their design and verification environment, saving significant amounts of time.

Sony's new SxS PRO memory card, designed for professional videographers, provides data-transfer speed of 800 Mbps (*1) will be best suited for its XDCAM EX series professional camcorders, which are planned to be launched this year. The SxS PRO card offers a more efficient workflow by reducing transfer times of large data files such as high-definition video and its compact size is ideally suited to the lighter and smaller camcorders needed for mobile videography, and gives users more opportunities to shoot in a wider range of conditions.

"Denali understands the challenges facing design teams, including reaching time-to-market timelines while minimizing the impact on engineering resources," states David Lin, vice president of marketing at Denali Software. "Our customers, such as Sony, confidently use our high-quality verification IP so that their designs can meet PCI Express compliance and significantly shorten the verification time required to bring their product to market."
