Mentor Graphics and Lauterbach Collaborate to Deliver a Hardware-Accelerated, Software Development and Debug Platform for SoC Verification

WILSONVILLE, OR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 27, 2010 -- Mentor Graphics Corp. (NASDAQ: MENT), the leader in advanced system verification solutions, and Lauterbach GmbH, the world's largest supplier of hardware-assisted embedded debug tools, today announced they have collaborated to deliver a hardware-accelerated, software-development and debug platform for the verification of Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) and embedded systems.

The combination of Mentor's world-leading Veloce® hardware emulation technology with Lauterbach's superior integrated debug and development tools delivers a high-performance and productive environment for handling concurrent hardware-software verification of embedded systems. The goal of both companies is to help bring complex SoC designs to market on schedule, without compromising verification accuracy or performance.

Lauterbach is established as the world's technology and market leader of microprocessor development tools for embedded systems applications, with over 80,000 development seats installed across the globe by the end of 2008. The Lauterbach tools provide a quick and efficient environment for the testing of embedded systems, which is critical for the verification of next-generation SoC designs.

"As the market leader in the development and delivery of integrated software environments for embedded system applications, Lauterbach is committed to providing the best possible verification solutions for our customers. By combining with Mentor and their Veloce emulator, we can show our customers a high-speed platform that allows them to perform concurrent hardware-software integration many weeks or months before they are committed to real silicon, increasing their verification productivity and improving their time-to-market," said Norbert Weiss, International Sales & Marketing Manager, Lauterbach GmbH. "Our customers can now access a virtual hardware environment, that mimics the functionality of their real silicon, to debug their software at high-speeds using our standard toolsets."

Veloce is the industry's fastest dual-mode accelerator/emulator, providing MHz performance for both transaction-based verification and traditional in-circuit emulation (ICE). With an extensive portfolio of vertical market solutions, the Veloce product is the platform of choice for embedded systems, multimedia, wireless, and networking applications.

"We worked closely with Lauterbach to implement this high-performance solution for embedded software debug." said Jim Kenney, Mentor Emulation Division (MED) director of marketing. "By teaming with Lauterbach we've ensured a solid software debug environment for our joint customers so they effectively validate the hardware-software interface of their System-on-Chip."
