On Friday, Shares of Mentor Graphics Corp (NASDAQ:MENT), added 1.79 % and closed at $30.68 in the last trading session. The last trading range of the stock ranges between $30.00 and $30.93. Mentor Graphics Corporation (MENT) recently declared its new Tessent® DefectSim™ product, that measures the defect coverage of any test applied to an analog or mixed-signal circuit. This capability improves the quality and reliability of analog and mixed-signal circuits through the selection of more effective tests and reduces the cost of test by showing which tests do not increase coverage. Tessent DefectSim satisfies the growing defect-coverage measurement requirement for automotive ICs set by Tier1 automotive suppliers.
Tessent DefectSim works with Mentor’s Eldo® and Questa® ADMS™ circuit simulators to measure the effects of opens, shorts, extreme variations, and user-defined defects modeled within a layout-extracted or schematic netlist. A number of techniques are used to reduce total simulation time by many orders of magnitude, contrast to sequential simulation of every defect in a flat layout-extracted netlist, without reducing simulation accuracy or limiting the type of test. Among the techniques is a new statistical method called likelihood-weighted random sampling that minimizes the number of defects to simulate and more accurately indicates outgoing chip quality.
