Mentor to Officially Change Name to Siemens EDA


Reading time ( words)

Mentor, a Siemens business, will be known as Siemens EDA as of January 2021.  The organization continues to operate as part of Siemens Digital Industries Software.

Under this new banner, Siemens is bringing together the world’s most comprehensive portfolio of EDA software, with Siemens technology for simulation, mechanical design, manufacturing, cloud, IoT and low-code.

The result is the broadest and deepest portfolio of industrial software that is uniquely positioned to help customers successfully navigate the accelerating convergence of semiconductor design and systems design.

For more information about this change, be sure to read this blog post by Joseph Sawicki, Executive Vice President of IC-EDA for Siemens EDA.

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.

Alternatives to Simulation

04/23/2021 | Dan Beeker, NXP Semiconductors
We are living in an age where the demands on electronic product designs are constantly evolving. The IC technology and operating speeds continue to pose significant challenges for teams as they work to develop their products. The increased transistor switching speeds and less forgiving compliance standards make signal integrity and electro-magnetic compliance more difficult to achieve. The status quo seems to have become, “We expect to fail EMC testing.”

Bridging the Simulation Tool Divide

04/12/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Todd Westerhoff of Siemens EDA recently spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team about the divide between users of high-powered enterprise simulation tools and those who need a more practical tool for everyday use, and how Siemens is working to bridge the gap. Todd also shared his views on why so many engineers do not use simulation, as well as advice for engineers just getting started with simulation tools.
