Mentor Graphics Corp (NASDAQ:MENT), jumped 7.09% and closed at $26.44 in the last trading session. The last trading range of the stock ranges between $25.60 and $27.29. The company’s Market capitalization is $3.06 Billion with the total Outstanding Shares of 108.16 million. Mentor Graphics Corporation (MENT) recently declared that Siemens Building Technologies has deployed Mentor’s SystemVision® product with Siemens printed circuit board to (PCB) design teams around the world, providing an upfront, mechatronic simulation environment and a qualified, central library for the Mentor Graphics® Xpedition® Enterprise PCB design flow. Early simulation using the SystemVision tool allows designers to make design decisions regarding component tradeoffs, find design mistakes, and verify their designs before PCB layout. The central library allows teams to exchange projects around the world, which eliminates errors because of using different libraries and tools for simulation and PCB layout.
The SystemVision multi-discipline partnershipenvironment lets designers at Siemens Building Technologies explore concepts, validate performance specifications, and investigate architectures of systems developed for modern, energy-efficient building systems. These systems are comprised of electrical (analog, digital, and mixed-signal), mechanical, embedded software, and controls. Teams from Switzerland, France, China, and the United States save valuable design time by validating electrical circuits within the context of the mechanical systems with which they interface, before committing to the PCB layout. Using a central library that contains all the information required for design capture, simulation, and PCB design, provides a seamless design flow.
“Thanks to SystemVision, our design teams identify many design issues before the PCB layout takes place,” said Philipp Schuermann, E-CAD tool manager at Siemens Building Technologies. “Combined with the central library, our PCB design flow has been greatly improved around the world, allowing us to get our innovative building products to market more quickly.”
