Mentor Graphics Aligns Product Groups to Address IC Implementation Challenges at 45nm and Beyond
WILSONVILLE, Ore., May 07, 2008 – Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced it has aligned its integrated circuit (IC) implementation product lines under the Design-to-Silicon division to better address the design and manufacturing challenges of 45nm and smaller process nodes. The division, which will be headed by vice president and general manager, Joseph Sawicki, will now include Mentor's industry-leading IC products: the Olympus-SoC™ place-and-route system, the Calibre® physical verification and DFM platform, and the design-for-test (DFT) product line.
“This change positions Mentor to more effectively help our customers tackle the complex design and manufacturing challenges they are experiencing as ICs move to smaller processes,” said Gregory K. Hinckley, president of Mentor Graphics. “Joe has been instrumental in building the Calibre franchise into a full back-end flow. His leadership and experience will serve the newly aligned organization well as Mentor continues its IC implementation business strategy.”
Sawicki joined Mentor Graphics in 1990 and has held previous positions in applications engineering, sales, marketing and management. He holds a BSEE from the University of Rochester and an MBA from Northeastern University's High Technology Program.
