For functional safety, Mentor’s expanded ISO26262 software tool qualification program, Mentor Safe, helps customers rapidly navigate the increasingly complex process of compliance. SemiWiki outlines the program details in this article.

 
 
Overcoming Electromigration Analysis Limitations for Larger On-Die Power Grids
Tech Design Forum

A novel physics-based approach for assessing electromigration (EM) was developed by Mentor Graphics and the University of Toronto. This approach offers the speed and accuracy required to analyze today’s increasingly large,on-diepower grids.

 
 
Real-Time Performance Across The Factory Floor
Semiconductor EngineeringEtherCAT_Mentor-Graphics

For industrial control applications, the need for real-time performance is crucial. RTOSes, with middleware, continue to play a major role. In this article, Andrew Caples dives into communication protocols and the solutions available today for real-time factory floor performance.

 
 
Obtaining Accurate Analysis that Matches Measurements
Printed Circuit Design and Fabdesignersnb1 (1)

PCB design simulation provides an extremely accurate prediction of how the actual board will perform, allowing you to make design tradeoffs, and fix problems in a fraction of the time and cost it would take to build and test a single prototype. This article walks you through the steps of achieving an accurate simulation.

 
 
How the Shift towards Virtual Emulation is Reinvigorating Pre-Silicon Testing
Embedded Computing Design

Virtual emulation tools can play a crucial role in processing huge amounts of data and finding bugs before committing to silicon. Jean-Marie Brunet explains how the Veloce VirtuaLAB benefits pre-silicon testing of large SoC designs for networking, datacenter, and graphics applications.
