Mentor Graphics Corporation supplies electronic design automation (EDA) tools — advanced computer software and emulation hardware systems used to automate the design, analysis, and testing of complex electro-mechanical systems, electronic hardware, and embedded systems software in electronic systems and components. The company markets its products and services worldwide, primarily to large companies in the communications, computer, consumer electronics, semiconductor, networking, multimedia, military and aerospace, and transportation industries. It sells and licenses its products through its direct sales force and a channel of distributors and sales representatives. The electronic components and systems that the company’s customers create with its products include integrated circuits (ICs), printed circuit boards (PCBs), field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), embedded software solutions, and wire harness systems. The company’s products are used in the design and development of a set of electronic products, including transportation electronics, internet of things (IoT) platforms and systems, computers, medical devices, industrial electronics, manufacturing systems, and wireless communications infrastructure. As silicon manufacturing process geometries shrink, its customers are creating entire electronic systems on a single IC. These devices are called a system-on-chip (SoC). Products The company segregates revenues into five categories of similar products and services. These categories include Scalable Verification, IC Design to Silicon, Integrated System Design, New and Emerging Products, and Services and Other. Scalable Verification The Mentor Graphics Scalable Verification tools allow engineers to verify that their complex IC and FPGA designs function as intended. Functional errors are a major cause of design revisions that slow down an electronic system’s time-to-market and reduce its profitability. The Questa scalable verification platform includes support for hardware description languages, including System Verilog, simulation, and new methodologies, including assertions, use of verification intellectual property (IP), test benches, and formal verification methods. The Questa platform is used for verification of systems and ICs, including application-specific ICs (ASICs), SoCs, and FPGAs. Along with digital simulation products, the company offers analog/mixed-signal simulation tools. The company’s analog/mixed-signal simulation tools enable its customers to simulate and verify both the functionality and performance of complex circuits before mass production. The company’s Analog FastSPICE platform includes nanometer (nm) circuit simulation, an analog characterization environment and device noise analysis. Other analog/mixed signal simulation products the company offers include the Eldo and ADVance MS for classical analog/mixed-signal design. The company provides hardware emulation systems, such as its Veloce product family, which allow users to create high-performance functional and logical equivalent models of actual electronic circuits to verify the function and timing of those circuits. Hardware emulation systems run complex electronic circuits 100 times to 1,000 times faster than software simulation tools. Emulation is also used when software operating systems are embedded within circuits and there is a need for hardware/software verification and debugging. The company’s Veloce product allows customers to verify complex designs containing approximately two billion logic gates. IC Design to Silicon Shrinking geometries in ICs and increasing design size in the nm era have enabled ever increasing functionality on a single IC. The company offers the Calibre tool family, which is a standard for majority of the world’s largest integrated device manufacturers and foundries. The Calibre physical verification tool suite, Calibre DRC and Calibre LVS-H, helps ensure that a particular IC layout corresponds to the original schematic or circuit diagram of the design and conforms to stringent manufacturing rules at wafer fabricators where ICs are manufactured.
