n real-time. The company’s XtremeAR product is a PCB routing product that improves the routing time of large designs. This product allows improved designs by running more simultaneous routing iterations during the design cycle. The company’s AutoActive place and route technology is available on both UNIX and Windows platforms and is used to replace older generation routers in PCB design flows. The AutoActive technology, which is incorporated into the Expedition product line, is intended to help improve design quality, shorten design cycles, and increase manufacturability. The company’s Valor Division offers a line of products for PCB, DFM, and manufacturing execution systems. Valor’s solutions target three key segments in the PCB manufacturing market: design of the physical layout of the PCB, fabrication of the bare PCB, and assembly of PCB components. The company’s Mechanical Analysis Division provides simulation software and consultancy services. The company’s FloEFD product is a 3D computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer analysis tool that is embedded into Mechanical Computer-Aided Design systems to help design engineers conduct computational fluid dynamics analysis throughout the product’s life cycle. The company’s FloTHERM three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics software predicts airflow and heat transfer in and around electronic equipment, including effects of conduction, convection, and radiation to enable engineers to create virtual models of electronic equipment, perform thermal analysis, and test design modifications before any physical prototypes are built. This product line also includes one-dimensional computational fluid dynamics analysis. The Flowmaster one-dimensional computational fluid dynamics analysis software is used by thermo-fluid system engineers to model and analyze the fluid mechanics and pipe flow in complex systems. In addition, the MicReD T3Ster advanced transient temperature measurement system enables thermal testing and characterization of electronics components, PCBs, and sub-systems. New and Emerging Products The company provides specialized software tools for design, analysis, and documentation of the complex electrical systems found in automotive, aerospace, and other transportation platforms. Its Embedded Systems Division provides runtime software, tools, and professional engineering services that enable its customers to build secure embedded systems utilizing heterogeneous multi-core and multi-OS platforms. The company has focused initiatives in the automotive market segment where the company provides LINUX and Android based infotainment solutions, as well as AUTOSAR networking solutions. In addition to the automotive market, its embedded software solutions are used in mobile, medical, aerospace, industrial, and consumer electronics markets, and deployed on over 3 billion devices. Product Development The company’s research and development is focused on continued improvement of its existing products and the development of new products. During the year ended January 31, 2014, the company expensed $349 million related to product research and development. Competition The company’s principal competitors are Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (Cadence) and Synopsys, Inc. (Synopsys). History Mentor Graphics Corporation was founded in 1981. The company was incorporated in Oregon in 1981.
