Mentor has helped China Euro Vehicle Technology AB (CEVT) dramatically speed and simplify the design of its sophisticated, next-gen in-vehicle networks. Combining Mentor’s Volcano VSA COM Designer network design tool with SystemWeaver information management tools from Systemite AB, CEVT has replaced time-consuming manual tasks with a fully automated process, resulting in a 50% time reduction in the design and verification of end-solutions.
Mentor has announced that independent compliance firm SGS-TÜV Saar has certified the ISO 26262 compliance of tool qualification reports for key software elements of its Veloce Strato emulation platform.
Mentor has further expanded its Mentor Safe functional safety assurance programme by qualifying the ISO 26262 compliance of documentation for its Oasys-RTL Physical RTL Synthesis, Nitro-SoC Place and Route, and FormalPro Logic Equivalency Checker products.
Mentor Graphics has introduced the DRS360 platform – a comprehensive automated driving solution featuring breakthrough technology that captures, fuses and utilises raw data in real time from a wide range of sensing modalities, including radar, LIDAR, vision and other sensors.
Mentor Graphics has announced that independent compliance firm SGS-TÜV Saar has certified the ISO 26262 compliance of Mentor’s Software Tool Qualification Report for its Questa Simulation, Verification Management and Clock-Domain Crossing (CDC) products.
A broad and comprehensive ISO 26262 qualification programme has been introduced by Mentor Graphics Corporation, Mentor Safe. The programme includes the Nucleus SafetyCert real time operating system, the Volcano VSTAR AUTOSAR operating system and BSW stack, and a growing array of ISO 26262 certified documentation and qualification reports for Mentor tools supporting design and verification of System-on-Chip (SoC), system, mechanical and thermal applications.
Mentor Graphics Corporation has announced that Toyota Motor Corporation has approved its Volcano VSTAR AUTOSAR basic software stack for use in all Toyota vehicles. With this approval, global Tier 1 automotive suppliers can now leverage Mentor’s fast, resource-efficient AUTOSAR stack for the design and development of advanced Electronic Control Units (ECUs) in next-gen Toyota models.
It has been announced that Mentor Graphics Corporation's FloEFD Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology was used to improve the performance of the racecar driven by Anthony Kumpen of Belgium, who was crowned the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series Champion this month.
A joint engineering and marketing agreement has been announced by Mentor Graphics Corporation and Telemotive AG. The heart of the agreement will be the integration of Mentor’s Volcano VSTAR AUTOSAR stack with Telemotive’s Power Line Communication (PLC).
To test electric and hybrid vehicle (EV/HEV) power electronics reliably during power cycling, Mentor Graphics Corporation has introduced its latest MicReD Power Tester 600A product. The MicReD Power Tester 600A offering allows EV/HEV development and reliability engineers to test power electronics (such as insulated gate bipolar transistors - IGBTs, MOSFETs, transistors and chargers) for mission critical thermal reliability and lifecycle performance.
Mentor Graphics Corporation has announced that General Motors is deploying Mentor Capital electrical systems design tools for its vehicle development projects. The tools deliver cycle time reductions and support improved engineering processes, helping General Motors efficiently deliver the new electronic features demanded by the car-buying public.
Mentor Graphics Corporation has announced the Mentor Automotive A2B Analyser, the industry’s first third-party development platform supporting the Automotive Audio Bus (A2B) technology developed by Analog Devices. As automotive design complexity continues to grow, OEMs and suppliers are challenged with integrating faster, more efficient technologies into the automotive architecture at lower system costs.
New tools are now available from Mentor Graphics that deliver integrated electrical/electronic/software systems engineering capability for the transportation market. The Capital Systems tools allow implementations to be optimised for key parameters such as cost and weight. Unlike other approaches, engineers within the various disciplines do not need to understand one another’s detailed syntax.
Mentor Graphics has announced the availability of the Mentor Automotive Safety Certifiable Digital Instrument Cluster solution enabling safety-critical driver information to be displayed simultaneously with rich 3D graphics on a single instrument cluster display. The software architecture is implemented on a multi-core and even on single-core SoC and features very fast boot time.
The use of Ethernet, particularly in areas where high bandwidth and reliable performance are essential, is increasing. Mentor Graphics has announced the availability of automotive Ethernet support in its Volcano VSA product for network design of both AUTOSAR-based and non-AUTOSAR Electronic Control Units (ECUs).
To address the design challenges of integrated ADAS, driver information and infotainment domains, Mentor Graphics Corporation has acquired XS Embedded (XSe). XSe brings an approach to accelerate system design and verification by providing automotive-grade hardware and software to reduce the time to SOP.
Supporting the S1000D documentation standard, the latest Capital suite software release has been announced by Mentor Graphics. By using the Capital Publisher tool, users can automatically generate S1000D-compliant information packages directly from their electrical design data. This significantly reduces the costs and lead times associated with technical documentation creation.
The new Mentor Embedded Hypervisor product for in-vehicle infotainment systems, telematics, ADAS and instrumentation has been announced today by Mentor Graphics. The Mentor Embedded Hypervisor is a small footprint Type 1 hypervisor developed specifically for embedded applications and intelligent connected devices.
