ProDesign Electronic GmbH signed an OEM partner agreement with Mentor Graphics Corporation (Nasadq:MENT) to integrate the Mentor Graphics Precision® Synthesis tool into ProDesign’s new CHIPit Manager Pro software suite. Under the agreement, ProDesign will bundle a customized version of Mentor’s Precision RTL Synthesis software tool with its CHIPit ASIC Prototyping environment, allowing ProDesign’s customers to benefit from the increased performance and quality of results (QoR) offered by Mentor Graphics FPGA synthesis software. This integrated solution will enable ProDesign to serve as a “one-stop-shop” for scaleable ASIC prototyping platforms.
ProDesign supports the entire ASIC design implementation process and offers first-line support for the integrated Precision Synthesis tool. With this strategic partnership, ProDesign eliminates the customer’s potential confusion of different support channels for the same design-related questions, while providing faster, more efficient customer support to ASIC prototyping-related questions.
