Culver City, CA--August 22, 1996--Syncronys Softcorp (Culver City, CA) announced it will begin external beta testing of SoftRAM 3.0 (formerly designated SoftRAM96) beginning next Thursday, August 29 with the posting of the first program component on its Web site. Additional SoftRAM 3.0 program components will be posted in beta test form as they become readied in the following weeks.
SoftRAM 3.0 is one of four utility software products scheduled for introduction in the weeks ahead. Those products include RAM Charger, which began distribution last week following an enthusiastic reception at MacWorld Expo/Boston; Mac Access, scheduled for a September introduction; CD- RAM, slated for launch shortly after Mac Access; and a completely re-engineered SoftRAM 3.0 slated for release this fall.
David Klausner, a member of the Company's outside Technical Advisory Panel, will review the SoftRAM 3.0 test environment for validity and proper test. As part of that process, Klausner and other panel members will be preparing white papers on the various SoftRAM 3.0 modules to assist beta testers in gaining a more detailed understanding of the program's objectives and functionality.
The beta modules and white papers will be posted on the company's Web site at www.syncronys.com and will be available as patch files for downloading only by all SoftRAM and SoftRAM95 users.

Santa Clara, CA--August 22, 1996--V3 Semiconductor Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) announced the availability of production quantities of the CloverLeaf-960 (V96DPC) local bus to dual PCI bridge controller product line.
The CloverLeaf-960 family is fully compliant with the PCI 2.1 specification and delivers an 80960 to dual PCI bus bridges in a single component.
The V96DPC supports independent interface speeds, allowing each PCI bus to run at 33 MHz regardless of processor clock rate. With the Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation feature of the dual 576 byte FIFOs, designers can adjust the "draining" and "filling" of the read and write FIFOs to meet the requirements of the data streams.
Four bi-directional address translation units allow PCI-to-Local, Local-to-PCI, or primary PCI to secondary PCI addressing. Mailbox registers are provided for each bridge and are accessible from all interfaces.
The V96DPC is available in speeds up to 40 MHz, is packaged in a 313-ball BGA package and dissipates less than 1 watt running at 33 MHz.
Additional V3 Semiconductor support products for the i960 family of RISC microprocessors from Intel Corp. consist of the V96xPBC single PCI bus bridge controller, the V96BMC high-performance burst DRAM controller (for i960Jx/Cx/Hx processor-based systems), and the V96SSC system integration controller (for i960Sx/Jx processor-based systems).
