Siemens Mentor


Mentor: EDA Partner

Mentor Graphics Corporation, A Siemens business, is a world leader in electronic hardware and software design solutions, providing products, consulting services, and award-winning support for the world’s most successful electronic, semiconductor, and systems companies. The company enables companies to develop better electronic products faster and more cost-effectively. Company’s innovative products and solutions help engineers conquer design challenges in the increasingly complex worlds of board and chip design. Traditional EDA tools for physical design and verification have reachedlimits due to greater manufacturing process variability and the growing size and complexity of designs that take advantage of the latest nanometer scaling. With the advent of new process technologies, the handoff between integrated circuit (IC) layout and manufacturing has changed from a simple check to a multi-step process where the layout design must be enhanced to ensure efficient manufacturing. This presents a host of challenges related to manufacturing process effects, photolithography, data volumes, and achieving a cost-effective yield of finished chips from each wafer.[/dt_highlight]

Mentor provides its customers with critical tools for solving the increasingly complicated problems of verifying that today’s complex chip designs actually function as intended. Functional errors at the system level are the leading cause of design revisions affecting time to market and profitability. Design teams must improve existing methodologies with tools that scale across design complexity and multiple levels of abstraction.

Mentor is the market and technology leader in PCB design, providing many of the world’s largest system design companies today with a range of scalable design solutions to reduce the time, cost and risk of electronic system design: Xpedition™ Enterprise, for the creation of today’s most complex PCB designs; Board Station® XE, the market standard solution for the PCB design challenges of the global enterprise; and the PADS®
flow, the leading Windows-based solution for complex PCB design. Corporate headquarters are located at 8005 S.W. Boeckman Road, Wilsonville, Oregon 97070-7777.
