San Jose, CA--September 24, 1996--IMP Inc. (San Jose, CA) announced Release 2.0 of Analog Magic design software for its electrically programmable analog circuit (EPAC) family.
Analog Magic 2.0 software runs on Windows-based personal computers and allows users to configure and program working EPAC silicon using a simple "point and click" approach. EPAC devices are the analog counterpart to digital field programmable gate arrays.
Release 2.0 of Analog Magic supports the new IMP50E30 programmable monitoring and diagnostic IC which was announced in May 1996. The IMP50E30 window and level comparison modes, channel sequencing modes, and analog-to-digital converter mode can be set-up and configuration data stored in on-chip EEPROM memory with AM2.0 software and IMP hardware development tools.
Program speed and responsiveness have been increased by writing the new release with the Microsoft Foundation Class Library.
To simplify and speed the circuit documentation process, the on-screen circuit image can now be pasted into the Windows clipboard for placement into other Windows compatible documents. In addition, a print preview function has been added.
To aid circuit debugging and speed productivity, an informative status line has been added. Information on channel number, edit mode state, and the most recent command issued now appear on screen.
The company offers free AM2.0 evaluation software that can be downloaded from its web site at http://www.impweb.com or requested by calling (800) GET-EPAC.
Registered users receive a free upgrade to any new revision of Analog Magic software released within six months of the date of original purchase.
A full complement of hardware development tools and software are available now that support both the IMP50E10 and IMP50E30. These include the D130 Starter Kit; the DA30, and IMP50E30 add-on for current owners of the D210 Complete Development System; and the D211 IMP50E10/50E30 Complete Development System. The D211 is designed for new EPAC developers as it supports all currently available EPAC devices.
The D130 Starter Kit costs $395. The D211 IMP50E10/50E30 Complete Development System sells for $1,495.
The D130 Starter Kit contains a stand alone programming board for the IMP50E30 and Analog Magic 2.0 software. The DA30 is an add-on kit for D210 Complete Development System users, and contains an IMP50E30 device adapter board, two IMP50E30 general purpose application boards, two IMP50E30 devices, and Analog Magic 2.0 software.
Designed for the first-time EPAC user, the D211 IMP50E10/50E30 Complete Development System contains all the necessary hardware and software to develop both IMP50E30 and IMP50E10 circuit applications.

Valley Forge, PA--September 26, 1996--Integrated Circuit Systems Inc. (Valley Forge, PA) announced that it has sold its Battery Charge Controller business to Edward H. Arnold, a director, and former chairman and CEO of the company.
Since 1991 the Company has manufactured and sold to OEMs a range of integrated circuit products for use as components of battery chargers. Such products were, however, outside of the core business of the company and did not materially contribute to the company's revenue.
Under the terms of the sale Arnold acquired all outstanding shares of the wholly-owned subsidiary of the company, Galaxy Power Inc., which owned the intellectual property rights and other assets for this business, in exchange for shares of the company stock held by Arnold.
