The catalog you are viewing represents the most comprehensive commitment to interoperable products in the EDA industry. With customers facing increased complexity in their design environments, OpenDoor is your answer in creating a heterogeneous environment for maximum productivity.

Through OpenDoor, over 95 partner companies have agreed to develop and maintain commercial integrations, expanding the choices available to Mentor Graphics users in all design processes: hundreds of EDA products now interoperate with Mentor Graphics tools for ESDA, Top Down Design, PCB Layout and IC Design.

If there is an EDA product you need to use in your design process with a Mentor Graphics tool, get in touch with us and we'll be happy to send that vendor introductory materials for joining the program. In working with OpenDoor, vendors can obtain:

  • Support: OpenDoor provides optional software loans and technical assistance to partners integrating and maintaining interoperability from release to release. Ask our partners about it.

No single company can supply all the design tools required by all design processes. Mentor Graphics maintains the OpenDoor Program as a mechanism to promote and distribute the development of interfaces among interested vendors of EDA software. Because the partners in this program engineer these interface products for you, the quality and content of the integration results from your interactions with them. Our experience is that the partners take your feedback seriously as do we. If you'd like to send us your experiences - good or bad - we can use them to continuously improve this program.
