Sipex Adds Downloadable Simulation Tool for PowerBlox™ Designs

Monday, September 18, 2006

Milpitas, California, (September 18, 2006) (OTC: SIPX.PK), - Sipex Corporation today announced the addition of a downloadable simulator and Spice models for its PowerBlox™ integrated circuits, allowing the designer to conduct simulations without the requirement of an internet connection. The Spice models can also be integrated into the customer's existing simulator enabling the simulation of the complete system.

"The addition of these state-of-the-art simulation tools is one more way we are supporting our customers, recognizing that in today's environment, design cycles have been greatly reduced," said Dimitry Goder, vice president of applications at Sipex. "We are continuing to develop tools which will enable our customers to understand design performance prior to building prototypes and manufacturing, resulting in faster, zero error designs."

These simulation tools allow users to access quick-start reference schematics, as well as an option for specific output requirements and other user-defined choices. Once the input requirements are entered the user will be presented with a solution that is properly compensated and will have all of the peripheral components properly calculated. The schematics may then be opened in the downloadable power simulator tool. The new downloadable simulation tools and Spice models are available on the Sipex website at http://www.sipex.com/simulationTools.aspx.
