Mentor Graphics Corp. has announced that sale of the Expedition Series PCB tools to Taiwan-based PC maker ASUS.

The sale includes Mentor's new product XtremePCB, which allows designers to work on the same design from anywhere in the world. Also included is Mentor's PCB design definition solution, DxDesigner. Adoption of these technologies by ASUS will enable them to significantly reduce their design cycle times in the highly competitive PC motherboard industry.

ASUS plans to use Expedition as a routing engine for their OEM partners, reducing push and shove times up to 30 percent, all without impacting the current flow. Most importantly, ASUS intends to use Expedition, Xtreme and DxDesigner exclusively for their OEM products.

Henry Potts, VP, general manager of mentor's systems design division, stated, "Expedition offers advanced technology in the world for the design of high performance systems. With ASUS taking advantage of Mentor's superior product functionality, they can expect to see their design cycle times reduced significantly - up to 40 percent."
