Mentor Graphics Delivers Simulation for Automotive and Aerospace Electrical Systems Designers in CHS 2008.1 Release

WILSONVILLE, Ore.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 29, 2008— Mentor Graphics Corporation (Nasdaq: MENT) today announced that the 2008.1 release of Mentors CHS design software, available this week, provides electrical simulation functionality inherently within the core Capital Logic and Capital Integrator tools.

Previously purchasable as additional modules, both qualitative (behavioral) and numerical simulation is now included within the core tools at no extra cost. Designed to be used by every electrical designer, not just simulation experts, results such as current flow and voltage drop are displayed directly within the design environment. This helps engineers visualize how their designs function, supports decision making, and aids early debugging. Peter Shaw, senior EDS electrical design manager for Jaguar & Land Rover, said, Simulation is a cornerstone of a modern vehicle electrical design process. I would not deploy a tool that lacked this capability. CHS has always been strong in this area, so Im delighted that Mentor now provides electrical simulation within the core tools without any extra charge.

Several other enhancements to the CHS simulation capabilities are also made at this release. In addition to user interface improvements and simplified software installation, Mentor now provides a starter library of simulation models and has added grouping to simplify co-simulation of multiple designs. Nick Smith, CHS Marketing Director, said, CHS 2008.1 is a further example of Mentor Graphics commitment to providing added value and making our CHS tools ever easier to use.

CHS is a fully integrated application suite for electrical system design, electrical analysis, system integration / wiring design and harness engineering. It has powerful embedded data management capabilities (vehicle configuration management, workflow control, design comparison, etc). CHS is architected for large organizations (multi-user, multi-site) and includes substantial enterprise integration capabilities.
