Date:4/1/2009

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Samplify Systems, Inc., a next-generation mixed-signal semiconductor company, today announced that its SAM1600 family of analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), integrated with the company's patented Prism(TM) real-time signal-compression technology, is the winner in EDN Magazine's 19th annual Innovation Awards competition in the ADC and DAC category.

Samplify received the honor during the awards ceremony hosted by EDN Magazine during opening day of the 2009 Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley, held in San Jose, California. The Innovation Awards, which honor the best technology, products and people in electronics design, are determined by a combination of the magazine's readership along with EDN's editorial staff and editorial advisory board. The voting, which ended late February, identifies a single winner in several categories and Samplify's SAM1600 family took the top honor in the prestigious ADCs and DACs category. Other finalists in the ADC and DAC category included the MAX5661 16-bit DAC from Maxim Integrated Products, the DAC9881 18-bit DAC from Texas Instruments, and the ADC12EU050 12-bit octal ADC from National Semiconductor. Samplify's winning entry can be viewed at http://www.edn.com/info/CA6631770.html .

"We would have been honored just to be considered as a finalist in the same category with esteemed analog companies such a Maxim, TI, and National," said Al Wegener, CTO and founder of Samplify. "Given these companies did make incremental improvements in analog performance of their nominated devices," Wegener added, "we are especially flattered that the readers and editorial staff of EDN Magazine understood and appreciated the value of integrating compression, our first digital kernel, into a data converter."

The SAM1600 family, integrated with Samplify's Prism signal-compression algorithm, provides a cost-effective and power-saving alternative to brute-force hardware approaches to transport and store large amounts of sampled data within systems. SAM1600 ADCs deliver twice the channel density while consuming only half the power of competing solutions. With these products, Samplify provides a complete, end-to-end compression solution which also includes the Samplify for FPGA and Samplify for Windows decompression engines.

The Prism(TM) compression engine in the SAM1610/05 is fully compatible with Samplify's existing FPGA intellectual property (IP) and software-based decompression blocks, enabling compression to be used throughout the entire signal chain
