Mentor Graphics Acquires Nimbic, Inc.
WILSONVILLE, Ore., May 20, 2014—Mentor Graphics Corp. (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced that it has acquired Nimbic, Inc., a leading provider of Maxwell- accurate, 3D full-wave electromagnetic (EM) simulation solutions. Nimbic’s high-performance high-end simulation capability and ability to accurately calculate complex electromagnetic fields will expand and strengthen Mentor’s chip-package-board simulation portfolio.
“Nimbic’s world-class 3D electromagnetic simulation solutions for signal integrity, power integrity, and EMI (electromagnetic interference) analysis are used by numerous leaders in the electronics industry to address their enterprise-wide challenges for chip-package-board design,” said Raul Camposano, CEO, Nimbic, Inc. “Nimbic’s recognized solutions enable the industry to cope with increasingly higher-end complexity. We see joining Mentor Graphics as a natural fit with its own leadership in PCB and package systems design, global footprint, and extensive network of enterprise customers. We view this transaction as very positive for our customers, our employees, and the industry as a whole.”
“Mentor Graphics is already the recognized leader in PCB systems design with our flagship Xpedition flow and our market-leading HyperLynx solutions for signal integrity, power integrity, DRC and thermal analysis. Nimbic’s 3D electromagnetic simulation further enhances Mentor’s portfolio to solve the increasing complexity challenges that our customers face,” said Henry Potts, vice president and general manager of the Mentor Graphics Systems Design Division. “Mentor is committed to providing simulation solutions from entry-level to advanced, including IC package and package co-design. The addition of Nimbic further extends Mentor’s leadership in systems design simulation and is a valuable addition to our offerings already provided through Xpedition.”

We are happy to announce that InnoFour again is involved in a program introducing kids at an elementary school to the world of electronics and electronic engineering, done in the form of a technique lesson where the kids are introduced to the basics of electronics.Mentor PCB Forum
Mentor PCB Forum was held this year on May 14 in Conference Centre The Koningshof in Veldhoven, where more than 60 electronic designers and users of Mentor Graphics PCB tools came together to learn more about the new Xpedition PCB environment. During a full day with presentations and demonstrations a lot of new functionality and features where shown on several products in this new Xpedition VX flow.
