Product Portfolio
Mentor Graphics provides its customers with all critical tools for the IC, PCB and complete electronic system design. Furthermore the company offers dedicated solutions for special market needs like wireless communication or automotive electronics.
Scalable Verification: The Scalable VerificationTM platform is the most comprehensive EDA solution for functional verification, merging standards support, tools and a “design for verification” methodology to minimize verification cycles and design revisions. The platform is comprised of industry leading technologies: the ModelSim® simulation environment, Seamless® Hardware/Software Co-Verification, ADVanceMSTM for analog/mixed-signal verification, FormalProTM equivalence checking and the VStationTM and CelaroTM hardware emulation platforms.
Design to Silicon: To meet the  challenges of advanced process technologies with confidence, design teams can turn to the integrated Calibre® design-to-silicon platform, which includes physical verification, full-chip, transistor-level parasitic extraction, design for manufacturability (DFM), mask data preparation (MDP) and resolution enhancement technologies (RET). The Graphics TestKompress® embedded deterministic test tool helps companies efficiently screen complex devices to identify the new types of failures, while simultaneously reducing the cost of test.
Integrated PCB-FPGA Systems Design: Mentor Graphics is the market and technology leader in PCB design, providing many of the world’s largest system design companies today with a range of scalable design solutions to reduce the time, cost and risk of electronic system design: the ExpeditionTM Series, for the creation of today’s most complex PCB designs; the Board Station® family, the market standard solution for the PCB design challenges of the global enterprise; and the PADS® flow, the leading Windows-based solution for complex PCB design.
Mentor Graphics also offers emerging products for specific design and application challenges such as high-speed routing and verification advanced packaging, concurrent team design, FPGA-on-board integration or design data management. These tools include:
The Catapult C Synthesis product which enables engineering teams to produce reliable ASIC or FPGA hardware that is up to 50 percent smaller in size, in a significantly reduced amount of time.
The Capital HarnessTM Systems as a powerful design environment developed specifically for the wire harness industry, providing a data-centric tool suite for electrical systems and associated harness design.
The Nucleus® software development platform offers a royalty free source code, a real-time operating system (RTOS) and a fully integrated development system for embedded designs.
The Platform ExpressTM environment verifies the viability of interfaces in the portion of the design surrounding the embedded processor and its attached peripherals and so shortens product development cycles.

Last but not least Mentor Graphics extends its powerful tools with sophisticated consulting, and services to ensure that the customer get the right support at right time anywhere in the world.
