Silicon Optix and Calibre UK Limited Form Design Partnership Agreement

San Jose, CA—(May 2008)—Silicon Optix, the leader in advanced video processors, is pleased to announce that it has entered a third party design partnership agreement, with long-time customer, Calibre UK Limited. The design agreement will pertain to existing chip platforms Realta and Reon, currently in the marketplace.

“As we begin the release of the next generation Silicon Optix ICs, we must focus our internal support resources on new opportunities,? said Jim Mannos, President and CEO of Silicon Optix. “During the early part of the transition, our main revenue stream will come from the well established Realta and Reon chipsets. We chose to partner with Calibre as they have vast knowledge and resources to provide high-level support for existing products, allowing us to focus on future endeavors.?

Calibre is a manufacturer of medical, defense, premium consumer and Pro AV related videographic and image processing systems. The company has invested heavily in advanced product development with Realta and is also currently working with Reon products, and therefore well positioned for this transition of design.

“Calibre has a thorough understanding of the complex Silicon Optix processors as we’ve been incorporating the chipsets for the past few years. In addition to our own 20 years of product design expertise, we have strengthened our internal resources,? said Pauline Brooksbank, President of Calibre. “In addition to our team of engineers in Bradford, UK, we welcome three of the best engineers from the Silicon Optix Germany team to our new Hannover office: Dirk Bartholdtsen, Thomas Wenzel and Michael Schaper. We feel that Calibre now has the processes and personnel in place to continue the success that Silicon Optix has achieved.?
