METROWERKS ANNOUNCES EMBEDDED SYSTEMS TOOLS STRATEGY

CodeWarrior for Embedded Systems to support multiple embedded targets

SAN JOSE, California and AUSTIN, Texas--Metrowerks Inc. (NASDAQ: MTWKF,
TSE/ME:MWK), the leading provider of software development tools for
Macintosh, today announced it's plans to extend support for embedded
systems software development. By introducing a series of new MacOS and
Windows-hosted development solutions for mainstream embedded
microprocessors and real-time operating systems, Metrowerks furthers its
commitment to the developers of the embedded systems market.

Until now, Metrowerks' efforts in the embedded tools arena have focused on
support for proprietary operating systems such as:

* PalmOS, in the form of CodeWarrior for Pilot (development tools for
the Pilot organizer from U.S. Robotics),

* PlayStationOS in CodeWarrior for PlayStation (development tools for the
Sony PlayStation game console),

* Magic CapOS for PDAs (included in CodeWarrior Gold), and

* Power TVOS for set-top boxes from Scientific-Atlanta (included in
CodeWarrior Gold).

Later this Fall, Metrowerks will introduce a new series of products,
entitled CodeWarrior for Embedded Systems, which will allow embedded
systems engineers to build applications for generic RTOSes and embedded
microprocessors.

"We view this market as an opportunity for significant growth," says David
Perkins, senior vice president strategic products of Metrowerks. "Today,
embedded systems engineers are in real need of powerful, easy-to-use,
commercial development tools that will shorten time-to-market and increase
productivity. Metrowerks is able to respond rapidly to this need due to
the modular, front-end/back-end architecture of our CodeWarrior development
environment."

"In cooperation Apple, Motorola, and Metrowerks are working to bring the
power and ease-of-use of the Power Macintosh, to the world of embedded
systems development. This, along with our collective experience in
transitioning the Macintosh from the 68K microprocessor to the PowerPC
microprocessor, uniquely prepares us to meet the needs of customers making
the transition from the 68K to the PowerPC for embedded systems
development. In particular, Metrowerks, with experience in converting over
1 billion lines of code to the PowerPC, brings a highly mature and
productive set of tools to this market," said Ellen Hancock, chief
technology officer and executive vice president of Research and Development
of Apple Computer, Inc.

The first product in the CodeWarrior for Embedded Systems series will
provide support for Motorola's MPC8xx and is expected to ship in the 4th
quarter of calendar 1996, followed by CodeWarrior for Embedded 68k which is
expected to ship in the 1st quarter of calendar 1997. Pursuant to an
agreement announced today in a separate release with Microware Systems
Corporation, Metrowerks will offer support for Microware's OS-9 real-time
operating system running on the MPC8xx.

"As our line of embedded PowerPC processors becomes increasingly popular in
the marketplace, our goal is to have the most effective and powerful
development tools available to our customers," says Ken Edwards, marketing
manager, Motorola's Portable Systems Operation. "With the sophistication
and ease-of-use offered through CodeWarrior, Metrowerks is helping us meet
that goal today."

"CodeWarrior for Embedded Systems will be a powerful and highly productive
environment in which to develop embedded software," said Richard Nabavi,
chairman of MicroAPL Ltd., specialists in porting tools for the Macintosh
and embedded markets. "At the end of 1996 we will release
CodeWarrior-hosted versions of our PortAsm/68K and PortAsm/86
assembly-language translation tools, so that CodeWarrior users will be able
to port embedded CISC assembler code to new RISC processors in the same way
that many major Apple developers have done."

"CodeWarrior for OS-9 brings affordable high performance development tools
to our customers building the next generation of advanced consumer
electronics," says Ken Kaplan, president and chief executive officer of
Microware Systems Corp.

In addition to the Power PC and 68k Embedded tools, Metrowerks will
provide support for the MIPS R3000 and R4000 series of microprocessors, in
a product expected to ship in the 1st quarter of calendar 1997. CodeWarrior
for Embedded Systems series will also offer support for specific
proprietary Digital Signal Processors, or DSPs, with a product expected to
ship in 1st quarter of calendar 1997.

Each product in the CodeWarrior for Embedded Systems series will include
the award-winning CodeWarrior Integrated Development Environment, or IDE,
with full-featured GUI tools and C/C++ source-level debugging support,
online documentation, two free updates and technical support. In an effort
to provide developers with a choice of platforms from which to work,
Metrowerks will be offering both Mac OS and Windows 95/NT versions of the
software. These product offerings will enable embedded systems developers
to efficiently build applications for PDAs, smart phones, Web TV, set-top
boxes, navigational systems, car area networks, game machines, and other
communications and graphic intensive platforms.

Pricing and Availability
CodeWarrior for Embedded Systems will be available directly through
Metrowerks and authorized distributors at an expected retail price of $499.
