Sun Microsystems and Mentor Graphics Collaborate to Provide Solaris 10-based EDA Solutions on x64 Platforms

Sun Microsystems and Mentor Graphics Collaborate to Provide Solaris 10-based EDA Solutions on x64 Platforms

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and WILSONVILLE, Ore., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sun Microsystems , the creator of the Solaris(TM) Operating System (OS), and Mentor Graphics Corporation today announced that Mentor Graphics would begin qualifying and supporting selected Mentor products on x64/x86 platforms running the Solaris 10 Operating System (OS). This outlines Mentor Graphics' intent to include market leading products BoardStation XE, Calibre(R) nmDRC and LVS, Design for Test suite, and O-In product lines in the Questa(TM) functional verification platform.

"In cooperation with Sun, we are focused on providing products by the end of this calendar year running on x64/x86 platforms powered by the Solaris 10 OS, which address many different areas of design and design flow," said Greg Hinckley, President, Mentor Graphics. "This combination of market leading applications, the Solaris 10 OS and Sun's powerful x64/x86 workstations and servers is anticipated to provide optimal solutions for engineering teams developing next-generation system-on-chip and printed circuit board designs."

"Mentor Graphics and Sun have a long history of collaboration, so it's natural that we would expand our partnership," said John Fowler, Executive Vice President, Sun Microsystems. "Solaris, as the only UNIX(R) OS that runs on x64/x86-based systems, is ideally suited to address the challenges of deep sub-micron design."

"We are pleased to see these two industry leading companies, Sun Microsystems and Mentor Graphics, collaborating in this fashion," said Toshiaki Machida, General Manager of NEC Electronics' Development Support Center, Technology Foundation Development Operation Unit. "With Mentor Graphics providing support for the Solaris 10 OS running on platforms such as the Sun Fire(TM) x64/x86 servers, NEC can effectively leverage the depth of in-house Solaris expertise to provide the robust design infrastructure needed to bring next generation products to market."

"Our infrastructure investment is protected," continued NEC's Machida, "with the guaranteed forward compatibility of the Solaris operating system, which ensures that our engineers can count on application and infrastructure stability throughout the lifetime of our evermore complex development projects."

About Questa

The Questa platform is a mixed-language verification solution that supports simulation, assertions, coverage and testbench automation.

About Calibre nmDRC and LVS

Calibre(R) nmDRC is the solution to the physical verification challenges of nanometer design. Calibre nmDRC, with the new Hyperscaling processing architecture, produces best-in-class DRC run times with scalability to 100 CPUs. Calibre(R) LVS is unique among LVS tools as it measures actual device geometries for a complete accounting of physical parameters. These precise device parameters supply the information for back-annotation to the source schematic as well as the comprehensive data needed for running simulations.

About BoardStation XE

The Board Station XE flow enables highly productive design of complex PCBs through modern and innovative design tools while minimizing risk and leveraging customers' investments in Board Station libraries, designs, & front-end tools.

About Design for Test

A broad portfolio of DFT solutions for today's System-on-Chip and deep submicron designs, including integrated solutions for scan, automatic test pattern generation (ATPG), electronic design and test (EDT), advanced memory test, boundary scan, logic built-in self-test and a variety of DFT-related flows.

Availability

Questa, ModelSim and O-In support for Solaris 10 on x64/x86 systems is targeted for Q3 2007. Calibre nmDRC and LVS, Boardstation XE and the Design for Test suite availability is targeted for Q4 2007.
