WILSONVILLE, Ore., June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Mentor Graphics Corp.
(Nasdaq: MENT), a leader in advanced system verification solutions, today
announced that Inuitive, a developer of innovative technologies that improve
user experiences for latest-generation mobile applications, has achieved
first-pass silicon success using the Veloce^® emulation platform for
System-On-Chip (SoC) verification.

Inuitive's NUI (Natural User Interface) technology creates 3D depth map and
intuitive mobile applications that understand and predict the actions a user
wants to perform in any given situation. Inuitive's NUI accomplishes this
task in a simple and intuitive way. The key components of the technology are
Inuitive's latest multi-core processor chip, NU3000, and their innovative
software that improves the usability of various mobile devices, such as PCs,
tablets, and smartphones, bringing a new level of user personalization to the
device by completing various user tasks with one touch.

"To achieve the level of verification required for our designs, we chose the
Veloce emulation platform from Mentor for its superior performance and
excellent pre-and-post- silicon hardware-software debug environment," said
Shlomo Gadot , CEO, Inuitive."Our ability to perform pre-silicon Linux boot
was made possible due to the high performance of Veloce, which would have been
impractical in software simulation. Additionally, we were able to test our USB
software drivers and other chip interfaces extensively prior to silicon being
available. Once we received silicon samples, we were able to bring up and test
our chips in a matter of days due to the resulting high quality of the design,
which is a testament to the high-level of pre-silicon verification we achieved
with Veloce."

"I am very pleased with Inuitive's success in creating first-pass silicon, and
it is gratifying to see how the Veloce platform has been a key part of their
hardware-software verification flow for their innovative SoC designs," said
Eric Selosse, vice president, Mentor Emulation Division. "I wish Inuitive more
success in the future and look forward to our continued collaboration on SoC
verification requirements."
