Mentor has added three companies since its acquisition a little over a year ago - and there's method to this buying spree.
In a panel session at June's DAC, Synopsys customers talked about some of the ways they make verification more efficient and bring technologies such as formal, emulation, and simulation together.
Mentor has untethered its Veloce platform online because it feels more designs need emulation and the cloud can now support it.
After the moves by Cadence and Mentor, emulation in the cloud may only be the start of providing verification acceleration as a service.
Mentor will be present throughout the DAC program but with a particular focus on machine learning, artificial intelligence and automotive challenges.
Strato emulator family adds modular boxes that can build from 640K and 1.25B gate-counts for automotive, mil/aero markets and 'digital twin' strategies.
The Siemens subsidiary is involved with a wide range of tutorials, technical papers and more at this month's San Jose conference.
Mentor will present seven papers during the ARMTech Con and a dedicated session, and exhibit at Booth #606.
An emulator that extends the reach of hardware acceleration into the world of multiphysics analysis could result from the merger of Siemens PLM Software with Mentor.
StratoM hardware has 2.5B-gate capacity and can scale to 15B gates. Throughput claimed at 5X faster than earlier Veloce generation.
