Mentor Graphics Corp. (NASDAQ:MENT) today announced that Hewlett-Packard Co.,
Inkjet and Printing Solutions division, has reaffirmed their use of the Pyxis™
Custom IC Design Platform as their standard solution for custom IC design and

Support Division.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of our work with Mentor to advance
the state of the art in custom IC design, and appreciate our long standing

of people to work concurrently in the same area of a design to implement
late-stage ECOs, and cuts weeks, and sometimes months, off the design and
verification schedule.”
