Mentor Graphics HyperLynx PI (Power Integrity) Wins the 2010 DesignVision Award for System Modeling and Simulation

WILSONVILLE, Ore. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 3, 2010 — Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced it was honored by the International Engineering Consortium (IEC) with the annual DesignVision award in the System Modeling and Simulation Tool category for its HyperLynx® PI (Power Integrity) product. This solution delivers fast-time-to-accurate-results in the analysis of AC and DC behavior for printed circuit board (PCB) power distribution networks. The IEC announced the winners of the DesignVision Award at DesignCon on February 2, 2010. The winning products were selected on the basis of innovative design, uniqueness, market impact, customer benefits and value to the industry.

“Our HyperLynx product suite, including power integrity analysis, enables us to provide the world’s number one technology and market-share-leading PCB systems design solution,” stated Henry Potts, vice president and general manager of Mentor’s Systems Design Division. “Many of our advanced users need to jigsaw as many as 30 power distribution networks into their complex, high-performance designs. Delivering clean and sufficient power in these networks, while balancing product costs and designer productivity, requires a very sophisticated analysis capability.”

Power integrity analysis is an essential part of modern electronic design. Over the past few years, ICs (integrated circuits) have gone from single 5V power supplies to multiple voltages down to less than 1V. The ever-increasing number of voltages being used by ICs, in addition to dramatic increases in power consumption, makes proper power delivery an exceedingly difficult task.

"HyperLynx PI can help an engineer create cost-effective design rules for the power delivery network and answer the important “what-if” design questions early in the design cycle, bypassing the expensive build-it and test-it route,” stated Eric Bogatin, president, Be the Signal. “You can’t beat the combination of accuracy, ease of use, and transparent integration with the rest of the PCB design flow Mentor has built into HyperLynx PI.”

“The IEC is pleased to name the Mentor Graphics HyperLynx PI product as one of the most beneficial contributions to the electronic design industry as a 2010 DesignVision winner," stated IEC President John R. Janowiak. "This year’s DesignVision Awards received a record-breaking 105 submissions and we welcome industry professionals to learn more of this impressive design solution at DesignCon 2010.”
