HILLSBORO, Oregon and SANTA CLARA, California, April 10, 2001
Endeavor Intertech Corporation, an innovative developer of high
performance processors, co-simulation interfaces and tools for hardware
and software verification, and DSP Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSPG), a leading
developer and marketer of high-performance, cost-effective, licensable
digital signal processing cores, today announced the release of Precyse
Palm™ processor model and CoOperate™ HDL simulator interface for DSP
Group's PalmDSPCore® DSP architecture. Together, these two products
provide co-simulation capabilities that rival other conventional
co-simulation products on the market for as little as 20% of the cost of
traditional per-seat licenses.

Endeavor Intertech's Precyse Palm is a cycle-precise, high performance
DSP model, which can be licensed by itself as a software developer's tool,
or together with CoOperate as a co-simulation tool. By itself, Precyse
Palm executes about 120,000 operations per second, while maintaining bus,
pin, and clock cycle uniformity with the hardware. Moreover, it does so
for each of the eight busses as well as the powerful parallel
instruction-set that make up the PalmDSPCore architecture.

"The unique requirements of algorithm design on a powerful DSP like
PalmDSPCore necessitate an accurate model—otherwise the timing of critical
loops might be left in question," said Dan Budge, Chief Technology Officer
of Endeavor Intertech. "The complexity of the PalmDSPCore made it
imperative that we fully verify our Precyse model against the golden RTL
results—for both functionality and timing. Software developers can have
the confidence of knowing this model is 100% cycle-accurate, and will
simulate loop and other critical sections of code precisely as the
hardware will."

CoOperate transforms the Precyse Palm DSP processor model into a
co-simulating model. This co-simulating model can be easily incorporated
into a hardware design to provide instant co-simulation, without adding
yet another tool to the tool chain. CoOperate provides full
synchronization between the Precyse model and the HDL simulator, while
supplying a high throughput communication pipeline between the two.
CoOperate enables multiple instantiations of the model in a design, offers
full symbolic debugging capability through DSP Group's own symbolic
debugger interface, and connects to most popular Verilog and VHDL hardware

"With Endeavor's PalmDSPCore products, software development can be
brought into parallel with the hardware development," said Eyal
Ben-Avraham, DSP Group's VP of Development Tools & Software Support.
"Both development teams are guaranteed the same correct results, because
they can use the same model. The accuracy of the model allows the hardware
team to co-verify with additional intellectual property in the design. The
speed of the model enables the software team to develop drivers and test
unmodified applications. The result is a market-ready product in less

PalmDSPCore designers who seek a cost effective, simple-to-use
co-simulation solution will find CoOperate and Precyse Palm well suited to
their needs. Together, the two tools enable co-simulation with performance
of about 1500 cycles per second, when fully communicating with a hardware

PalmDSPCore is the top-of-the-line generation of DSP Group's licensable
cores in the company's SmartCores™ family. Its target markets are third
generation (3G) cellular handsets, broadband communication devices, Voice
over IP gateways and consumer multimedia products. The PalmDSPCore, a
fully synthesizable 'soft core', is process-independent and can be easily
implemented using any ASIC and process libraries.

PalmDSPCore is a low-power consumption processor implementing dual MAC
parallel architecture that has seven computation units working in
parallel. It has three instruction-set categories of single, parallel and
multi-parallel instructions, providing cutting-edge DSP performance, such
as 2 cycles for complex FFT butterfly, while maintaining a very condense
program size.

Endeavor Intertech's Precyse Palm models are available immediately on
Windows, Linux and Sun workstations. CoOperate for the PalmDSPCore can be
bundled with Precyse Palm. Please contact Endeavor for more information on
the cost of the products.
