Mentor Graphics Corporation offers electronic design automation systems advanced computer software and emulation hardware systems used to automate the design, analysis, and testing of complex electro-mechanical systems, electronic hardware, and embedded systems software in electronic systems and components. The company markets its products and services worldwide, primarily to large companies in the communications, computer, consumer electronics, semiconductor, networking, multimedia, military and aerospace, and transportation industries. Its products are used in the design and development of a set of electronic products, including automotive electronics, computers and workstations, digital cameras, cellular telephones, medical devices, smart phones, industrial electronics, and manufacturing systems. As silicon manufacturing process geometries shrink, the company’s customers are creating entire electronic systems on a single IC. These devices are called a system-on-chip (SoC). Products The company segregates revenues into five categories of products and services. These categories include Scalable Verification, IC Design to Silicon, Integrated System Design, New and Emerging Products, and Services and Other. Scalable Verification The Mentor Graphics Scalable Verification tools allow engineers to verify that their complex IC designs function as intended. Functional errors are a cause of design revisions that slow down an electronic system’s time-to-market and reduce its profitability. The Questa scalable verification platform includes support for hardware description languages, including System Verilog, simulation, and new methodologies, including assertions, use of verification intellectual property (IP), test benches, and formal verification methods. The Questa platform is used for verification of systems and ICs including application-specific integrated circuits, SoCs, and FPGAs. Along with digital simulation products, the company offers analog/mixed-signal simulators. Complex electronic designs often require different types of circuits, such as analog and digital, to work together. An example is a CD or DVD player, which uses a digital input and produces an analog output of sounds or images. The company’s analog/mixed signal simulation products include the Eldo, ADVance MS, and ADiT tools. The company provides hardware emulation systems, such as its Veloce product family, which allow users to create high-performance functional and logical equivalent models of actual electronic circuits to verify the function and timing of those circuits. Hardware emulation systems typically run complex electronic circuits 100 times to 1,000 times faster than software simulation tools. Emulation is also used when software operating systems are embedded within circuits and there is a need for hardware/software verification and debugging. The company’s Veloce product allows customers to verify complex designs containing up to two billion logic gates. IC Design to Silicon Shrinking geometries and increasing design size in the nanometer era have enabled ever increasing functionality on a single IC. The company offers the Calibre tool family. The Calibre physical verification tool suite, Calibre DRC and Calibre LVS-H, helps ensure that a particular IC layout corresponds to the original schematic or circuit diagram of the design and conforms to manufacturing rules at wafer fabricators where ICs are manufactured. The Calibre xRC and xACT products, transistor-level extraction and device modeling tools, compute the values of detailed circuit parameters including interconnect resistances, capacitances, and inductances to enable customers to simulate the performance of a design before it is manufactured. The Calibre Resolution Enhancement Technology (RET) tools allow wafer foundries to simulate the lithographic patterning system and apply modifications to the design layout patterns to overcome the resolution limits of the physical wafer patterning process. The Calibre family of optical proximity correction (OPC), RET, and mask data preparation tools enable higher yields in semiconductor manufacturing. The Calib
