DSP Group Releases Powerful TeakLite™/OakDSPCore® Development Tools

New TeakLite/OakDSPCore V8.0 Debugger Incorporates All Features of Previous Versions Yet Highlighted by a Wide Range of New, Enhanced Features Such As Improved GUI and Customizable DLLs

April 30th, 1999, Santa Clara, CA, USA, – DSP Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSPG), a leader in the development and marketing of high-performance, cost-effective digital processing cores and associated digital speech technology, announced today the release of its V.8.0 TeakLite / OakDSPCore set of SW Development Tools. One of the highlights of this release is a new powerful Debugger with enhanced features. While incorporating all the features of previous Debugger versions – the V8.0 Debugger also offers a wide range of new and improved, powerful enhancements geared to promote fast time-to-market IC product development.

According to Issachar Ohana, Director of DSP Core Licensing for DSP Group, "The new TeakLite / OakDSPCore Debugger version's modular design, enables the user to extend the built-in simulator for complete system simulation while fully customizing its hardware interface in able to work with its own hardware, while easily synchronizing with other Debuggers in order to perform multi-core debugging. In addition, the new Debugger has a new GUI look with many enhancements making the debugging session more user-friendly. Supporting paging in simulation and emulation modes, the Debugger provides better C/C++ language support and a host of other new and improved features focussed on helping clients develop their DSP products with a fast time-to-market curve.".

Mr. Ohana concluded, "Our new V8.0 SW development tools reflect DSP Group's on-going commitment and dedication to continual R&D and advancement in our DSP core product and technology lines, as well as adhering to our vision of maintaining our reputation as a leading global provider of DSP core products and DSP core development technologies. "
