Model Technology ModelSim Verilog Achieves Sign-Off Status at STMicroelectronics

PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 6, 2002--Model Technology Inc., a Mentor Graphics Company (Nasdaq: MENT - news), today announced that the ModelSim® hardware description language (HDL) simulation tool has achieved Verilog sign-off status with STMicroelectronics.

The ModelSim simulator will be used to verify next-generation 0.18 and 0.13-micron designs for products within the global telecommunications sector.

STMicroelectronics is a global independent semiconductor company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets a broad range of semiconductor ICs and discrete devices used in a wide variety of microelectronic applications, including telecom systems, computer systems, consumer products, automotive products and industrial automation and control systems. STMicroelectronics, as a leading supplier of ASICs, has developed state of the art ASIC design flows and optimized them for digital, analog or mixed signal applications.

"At STMicroelectronics, we are focused on satisfying the needs of our customers," said Giacomo Piccini, TPA-DAS Semicustom Division General Manager. "We have worked closely with Model Technology to provide our customers with ModelSim sign-off for both standalone Verilog and mixed language design flows."

Single Simulator For All Flows

With both VHDL and now Verilog sign-off at STMicroelectronics, ModelSim provides a single simulation solution for any design flow. The ModelSim tool's pioneering Single-Kernel Simulation technology provides fast performance and consistent results regardless of the language and the 64-bit simulation solutions can handle the largest designs. ModelSim's continued focus on integrated debug and GUI technology also ensures industry-leading ease of use in mixed-language environments.

"STMicroelectronics and its customers are developing some of the most advanced telecommunications-targeted designs," said John Lenyo, director of marketing for Model Technology. "Verilog sign-off status for ModelSim allows the customers of STMicroelectronics to work in their environment of comfort, whether it's Verilog or VHDL."
