Home > Press > Mentor Graphics and Freescale Expand Collaboration to Improve Manufacturing and Testing of Nanometer Technologies

Abstract:
Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) announced today it will supply Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE:FSL)(NYSE:FSL.B) with select electronic design automation (EDA) technologies designed to enhance the manufacturability and testability of semiconductors.

Mentor Graphics and Freescale Expand Collaboration to Improve Manufacturing and Testing of Nanometer Technologies

WILSONVILLE, OR | Posted on January 28th, 2009

The arrangement includes tools in the areas of design for test (DFT), field programmable gate arrays (FPGA), physical verification and analysis, advanced resolution enhancement technologies (RET), and pre- and post-tapeout design for fabrication and manufacturability (DFM). The new technologies will help expand on the work of an existing collaboration between Freescale and Mentor for developing design flows and methods to improve test and manufacturing capability.

"Freescale continues to invest significant resources to provide leading-edge capability throughout the design process," said Gregg Bartlett, Vice President of Design Technology at Freescale. "Mentor's solutions fit well into Freescale's DFM flow, helping us ensure that products have a high degree of manufacturability."

"Mentor is extremely pleased to continue its collaboration with Freescale," said Wally Rhines, CEO of Mentor Graphics. "We will work closely with them on our common goal of achieving breakthroughs in semiconductor technologies."
