Mentor Graphics Pyxis Platform Applauded By HP

Stocks in this article: MENT

Mentor Graphics Corp. (NASDAQ:MENT) today announced that Hewlett-Packard Co., Inkjet and Printing Solutions division, has reaffirmed their use of the PyxisCustom IC Design Platform as their standard solution for custom IC design and verification. The Pyxis platform was chosen based on the consistent delivery of new functionality, and the outstanding customer service and support HP receives from both the Deep Submicron Division as well as the Mentor® Customer Support Division.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of our work with Mentor to advance the state of the art in custom IC design, and appreciate our long standing partnership in solving unique problems integrating CMOS and MEMs design methodologies,” said Bill Young, CAD Tools Manager, Inkjet and Printing Solutions division, HP. “Mentor’s tools and exceptional support have given us a platform for consistent and repeatable design and verification that exceeds our expectations.”

“The Pyxis Custom IC Design Platform is delivering on our vision of eliminating the most serious custom IC design and verification pain points by innovating breakthrough solutions,” said Linda Fosler, director of marketing, Deep Submicron Division, Mentor Graphics. “The Pyxis platform enables a team of people to work concurrently in the same area of a design to implement late-stage ECOs, and cuts weeks, and sometimes months, off the design and verification schedule.”
