Mentor Graphics Receives 2008 Corporate Award from IEEE Standards Association

PISCATAWAY, N.J.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 8, 2008— Mentor Graphics Corporation has been honored with the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) 2008 Corporate Award in recognition of the company's "visionary leadership in bringing greater efficiency to the standards development process in the Design Automation Standards Committee through the adoption and support of the entity based development model."

Mentor Graphics has actively supported the development and adoption of IEEE standards for electronic design automation (EDA) from the IEEE's first standard in this area, VHDL, which was approved in 1987. For more than two decades since, Mentor Graphics has donated key technology for IEEE standards consideration, offered technical talent to help develop additional EDA standards, and provided seasoned individuals to manage and lead IEEE working groups and participate in IEEE-SA governance. More recently, Mentor Graphics has driven innovation in the development of standards to bring industrial backing and support to foster the delivery of timely and market relevant standards in support of the IEEE corporate process.

"This award honors Mentor Graphics for its leadership and dedication in partnering with us to create standards for EDA technologies," says Judy Gorman, Managing Director of IEEE-SA. "Industry has embraced many of these standards, and they have helped to change the way that people and businesses communicate around the globe. Mentor Graphics' consistent support of, and leadership within, the IEEE-SA Corporate Program has helped to strengthen an already world-class standards development process and allowed us to make great strides toward our strategic goals."

"Mentor has long recognized the pivotal role that standards play in product research and development," said Walden Rhines, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mentor Graphics. "We have always been supportive of and active in the IEEE standards process, and it has proven to be instrumental in improving the quality and relevance of EDA technology and tools."

John Lenyo accepted the award on behalf of Mentor Graphics.

The IEEE-SA Corporate Award is presented annually to an IEEE-SA member organization for providing outstanding leadership and contributions to the IEEE-SA. Past recipients include Intel Corporation; Motorola, Inc.; Hewlett-Packard Company; Sony Electronics, Inc.; Lucent Technologies - Bell Labs; and IBM Corporation.
