Mentor Graphics Delivers Optimized Android Development System for the OMAP35x Processors from Texas Instruments

TOKYO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 17, 2009 — Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT), a leading provider of embedded Linux and Android solutions, today announced its delivery of the Android Development System for the Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) OMAP35x processors based on ARM® Cortex™-A8 technology. Customers working on OMAP35x processor-based designs can leverage the Mentor Graphics version of the Android application framework to successfully deploy Android-based applications.

The Mentor Graphics solution for Android opens the door for OMAP35x developers designing medical, communication, industrial, instrumentation, home security and digital video applications. To get started, developers can leverage TI’s OMAP35x evaluation module to harness the solution’s most advanced features, performance and functionality available for their Android-based embedded designs.

Additionally, the Mentor Android Development System is also ready for use with the popular BeagleBoard from Based on the OMAP3530 processor, customers and developers can also run Android on a small, low-cost board that provides the functionality of a basic computer used for open source development. With the new Android platform, embedded developers gain power savings, performance optimization, reduced system cost and reduced risk in developing their embedded products.

“We have long supported open platforms and the creativity they spur in the industry; Android is one of the strongest examples of this trend. Today, our customers can realize their Android-based designs due to Mentor Graphics’ technical expertise and services that delivered this optimized framework for the OMAP35x devices,” stated Gerard Andrews, OMAP35x product line manager, TI. “Our collaboration with Mentor on the Android development kit provides our mutual customers with a variety of tools while minimizing the risk, cost and development of new Android-based devices so consumers can realize the true power of an open community.”

“There is tremendous business potential for Android-based embedded devices beyond the mobile market, so our collaboration with TI fulfills the demand from our mutual customers today,” said Glenn Perry, Mentor Graphics Embedded Systems Division general manager. “By providing TI with an embedded ‘ecosystem’ that includes technologies and services for Linux and Android-based devices, we are enabling our customers to create innovative products.”

A live demonstration of Android running on the TI OMAP35x evaluation module will be featured at the Embedded Technology Conference in Tokyo (Yokohama), Japan, November 18-20, 2009, in the Mentor Graphics booth C-43.
