Mentor Graphics has bought Nimbic, Inc, a provider 3D full-wave electromagnetic simulation solutions, for an undisclosed amount.

Nimbic's flagship offering, nWave (formerly PhysWAVE), is based on proprietary accelerated boundary element technology that enables speed and capacity while preserving gold-standard Maxwell accuracy. It provides an integrated full-wave 3D SI, PI, EMI solution in a single software framework and fits into standard CAD flows.

This acquisition will expand and strengthen Mentor's chip-package-board simulation portfolio. Nimbic's 3D electromagnetic simulation technology works to provide Mentor with the ability to address enterprise-wide challenges for chip-package-board design.

"Mentor Graphics is already the recognised leader in PCB systems design with our flagship Xpedition flow and our market-leading HyperLynx solutions for signal integrity, power integrity, DRC and thermal analysis. Nimbic's 3D electromagnetic simulation further enhances Mentor's portfolio to solve the increasing complexity challenges that our customers face," said Henry Potts, vice president and general manager of the Mentor Graphics Systems Design Division.
