Programmable logic vendor MathStar Inc. and EDA vendor Mentor Graphics Corp. announced that they have teamed to develop design tools for MathStar's field programmable object array (FPOA) devices.

Plans call for both companies to work together to improve tool integration and offer a wider variety of design and verification options for customers using MathStar's FPOAs, according to the companies.

MathStar also announced the availability of version 2.0 release of its design tools for the company's Arrix family of FPOAs based on the Visual Elite system design tool from Mentor. According to MathStar, the new release of the design tools includes the 2005.1.5 release of Mentor's Visual Elite for design creation, programming and functional verification.

"Our customers have benefited from using the Visual Elite tool as an integrated design and verification environment for the design of FPOAs," said Sean Riley, MathStar vice president of marketing. "Mentor's acquisition of Summit Design has allowed MathStar and Mentor to align product roadmaps to enable enhanced support for our hardware and system design customers."

Mentor acquired Summit Design for an undisclosed sum in October 2006.
