Cancelled R&D could be blessing-

Technical feasibility is paramount. So if the team reports the project is not overall viable, that's a successful outcome, too. Larry Desjardin explains.

Emulation platform chalks 15 billion-gate path to 2022

Mentor Graphics has broken with the mould in announcing a 5-year roadmap for the VeloceStratoM platform, which holds 64 verification boards and consumes 22.7W/Mgate when fully loaded.
