Mentor Graphics to Provide Tessent Silicon Test, Yield Analysis, Calibre Physical Verification and DFM for Freescale

WILSONVILLE, Ore. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 4, 2013Mentor Graphics Corp. (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced that Freescale® Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL) (NYSE:FSL.B) has selected Mentor as an ideal partner in the silicon test, yield analysis, physical verification and DFM technology areas.

The collaboration enables Freescale’s deployment of the Mentor® Tessent® and Calibre® technologies covering design for test (DFT), physical verification and analysis, and pre- and post-tapeout design for fabrication and manufacturability (DFM). The new technologies expand on the work of an existing collaboration between Freescale and Mentor for developing design flows and methods to improve design for manufacturing and silicon test capabilities.

“Freescale requires a fast time-to-market. Therefore, we continue to invest significant resources to provide leading-edge capability throughout the design process,” said Ken Hansen, vice president of the Technology Solutions Organization and chief technology officer for Freescale. “Mentor’s platforms are an integral part of Freescale’s design flow, helping us provide silicon solutions that have a high degree of testability, reliability and manufacturability. We chose Mentor Graphics because of its leadership in the DFT and physical verification technology areas. This alliance enables Freescale to expand product functionality and serve multiple markets, while reducing our development cycle time.”

“As a close partner with Freescale, we continue to see the benefits of working together on our common goal of achieving higher product functionality and reliability with accelerated time to market,” said Joseph Sawicki, vice president and general manager of the Design-to-Silicon Division at Mentor Graphics. “Our work together helps Mentor provide technologies to Freescale that increase the performance and scalability of their most advanced SoC designs.”
