V-by-One^® HS technology has been developed by THine to make internal
interface smarter and less expensive for various markets such as flat panel
displays, document processing systems, security systems, robotics, and
automotive infotainments. Especially, V-by-One^® HS has been widely accepted
as the de facto standard in flat panel display markets.

Mentor Graphics accelerates its customers’ time-to-market in developing their
systems-on-chip (SoCs) by embedding V-by-One^® HS, licensed from THine, in
their latest-generation verification solutions. This signals the increased use
of V-by-One^® HS technology in companies developing LSIs worldwide.

“Mentor Graphics is delighted to announce our partnership with THine
Electronics to license their leading technology for V-by-One^® HS,” said Eric
Selosse, vice president and general manager, Mentor Graphics Emulation

emulation-ready verification IPs for use with our best-in-class Veloce^®
emulator for this important protocol, which are deployed at world-leading
electronics companies. With this new product and partnership, Mentor Graphics
strengthens its position as the premier vendor for hardware and software
emulation solutions in a variety of multimedia market segments, including flat
panel TV displays.”

THine Electronics President and CEO, Kazutaka Nogami noted, “It is an
honorable partnership that THine licensed its V-by-One^® HS to Mentor
Graphics, one of the world best partners. While THine has made more than 280
