Mentor Graphics' Veloce Emulator Adopted by the Shanghai ZhangJiang Institute, PRC
WILSONVILLE, Ore. --(Business Wire)--
Mentor Graphics (News - Alert) Corp. (Nasdaq:MENT), a leader in advanced system
verification solutions, announced today that the Shanghai ZhangJiang
Institute has adopted the Veloce®
2 emulation system for its research and development activities
targeting the functional verification of System-on-Chip (SoC) integrated
The Shanghai ZhangJiang Institute is a pioneer in the development of
technologies in multiple industries, serving as a source of innovation
for original research and an incubator for new technologies in the
Shanghai area and the rest of the People's Republic of China.
"Our primary goal is to create an environment of technology innovation
that is recognized as an internationally competitive high-tech research
institute," said Sun Chongli, executive vice president, Shanghai
ZhangJiang Institute. "Delivering such a goal requires investments in
best-in-class solutions and products, which is why we have chosen Mentor
as a partner for hardware emlation technology with the acquisition of
their world-renowned Veloce 2 emulator. Using Veloce 2, we plan to train
300-500 engineers every year in China in SoC verification using best
practices. With Mentor's leadership in emulation, we believe we can
fulfill our desire to have the best SoC verification experience for our
users and clients in China."
"We are very proud to announce our partnership with the Shanghai
ZhangJiang Institute, delivering the latest-generation technology in
hardware emulation with our highly advanced Veloce 2 system," said Eric
Selosse, vice president and general manager, Mentor Emulation Division.
"The complexity of verifying SoC designs has made emulation a necessary
part of the electronic system verification process. Because Mentor is
deeply rooted in delivering verification technology from the system to
the RTL level, we anticipated how SoC complexity would make emulation
imperative, and built our Veloce 2 platform to scale to the growing need
for comprehensive system-level verification."
The Veloce 2 emulation platform is the latest-generation hardware
emulator from Mentor that reduces project schedules and costs by
delivering high-performance simulation acceleration, virtual emulation,
and traditional in-circuit emulation of complex SoC designs. The Veloce
2 platform achieves these benefits through a unique emulation-on-chip
architecture and best-in-class software and hardware technologies,
delivering fast compiles, full debug visibility, and advanced memory
