SAN JOSE, Calif. -- March 22, 2013

Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced that Dr. Andras
Poppe, associate professor at the Budapest University of Technology,
Department of Electron Devices, has received the Harvey Rosten Award For
Excellence in the Physical Design of Electronics. Dr. Poppe received the award
for his paper, “A Step Forward in Multi-domain Modeling of Power LEDs,” at the
29^th annual IEEE Thermal Measurement, Modeling and Management Symposium

The Harvey Rosten Award For Excellence has been established by the family and
friends of Harvey Rosten, who was responsible for the development of the
world’s first commercial general purpose computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
software, and co-founder of Flomerics (now a division of Mentor Graphics
Corporation). The Award commemorates Rosten's achievements in the field of
thermal analysis of electronics equipment, and the thermal modeling of
electronics parts and packages. The award aims to encourage innovation and
excellence in these fields.

Former Harvey Rosten Award winners include scientists from Philips
Semiconductors, Sun Microsystems, Infineon Technologies, STMicroelectronics,
Raytheon, Villanova University, Purdue University and Georgia Institute of

“We recognize Andras Poppe for his contributions to our industry since he is a
noted expert in thermal simulation and test methodologies, particularly in the
LED sector,” stated Dr. Clemens Lasance, former principal scientist with
Phillips Research and Harvey Rosten Award committee member. “Dr. Poppe’s
research and active involvement with key industry standards bodies, such as
JEDEC and CIE, have had a major impact on our industry, so we are proud to
honor him today.”

Dr. Poppe’s fields ofinterest include thermal transient testing of packaged
semiconductor devices, compact thermal modeling of semiconductor packages,
characterization of LEDs and OLEDs, and electro-thermal simulation. He is an
active member of the JEDEC JC15 and CIE TC2-63 and TC2-64 standardization
committees. Dr. Poppe was actively involved in the development of the JEDEC
JESD51-5x standards, targeting thermal characterization of power LED
components, used by many LED manufacturers and LED assembly/packaging

Dr. Poppe is also a product manager for the TeraLED® technology for LED
testing in the Mentor Graphics Mechanical Analysis Division. The TeraLED
product is used for thermal and radiometric/photometric characterization of
high-power LEDs. When combined with the T3Ster thermal transient tester, the
technologies provide a comprehensive, automated LED testing station. Besides
Dr. Poppe’s academic interest in LED multi-domain modeling, currently he is
active in development of industrial testing solutions for LEDs in his role at
Mentor Graphics.
