Mentor Graphics announced that it has joined the LSI RapidChip Platform ASIC partner program with its Platform Express solution. According to the press release, this provides the two companies' mutual customers with the ability to shave off several months of aggressive SoC development cycles and focus on product differentiation.

The Platform Express product is a platform-based design environment that allows designers to create SoC designs out of complex intellectual property (IP) in minutes, said Mentor Graphics. It enables SoC designers to rapidly create and verify their designs by automating complex, tedious and error-prone design creation, IP integration and verification steps, added the company.

"We share a common mission with LSI to enable designer productivity and speed time to market," said Serge Leef, GM of Mentor's system level engineering division. "As an LSI partner, we can deliver a complete platform-based design environment to our Platform ASIC customers, enabling them to quickly create complete system-on-chip devices efficiently and predictably."

The LSI RapidChip Partner Program reduces time-to-revenue, design risk and system costs by providing Platform ASIC designers with third-party development tools, including IP, design services and design tools that combine quality and flexibility for the consumer, communication, storage and other markets. LSI will be able to use Platform Express in its latest generation of the LSI RapidWorx design system.
