Mentor Graphics Corp. has announced that its entire line of Eldo and ADVance MS analog and mixed-signal products has been certified for operation on opteron and EM64T processor architectures using the red hat enterprise linux 3 (64bit) platform.

"Linux on X86-64 hardware is proving to be a great performance platform for our products," said Jue-Hsien Chern, vice president and general manager of Mentor's Deep Submicron Division, in a statement.

Mentor's analog/mixed-signal products and custom ic design tools join Mentor's DFT tools, ModelSim and the Calibre design-to-silicon platform in offering 64bit capability, something that is expected to become more important as engineers begin to design at 65nm and below, populating each chip with millions of gates.

Eldo is a simulator that offers multiple simulation and modeling options. Eldo RF extends the Eldo transistor-level simulator to accommodate RF chip designs. ADVance MS is a language-neutral, mixed-signal simulator designed to enable top-down design and bottom-up verification of multi-million gate analog/mixed-signal SoC designs. ADVance MS RF provides capability for mixed-signal simulation.

Mentor said its products are also available on Novell Linux SLES 9, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 for Xeon-64 and Opteron platforms.
