AMD Expands Technology Partnership with Mentor Graphics


Reading time ( words)

AMD today announced a new agreement with Mentor Graphics Corporation to now provide customers access to Mentor Embedded Sourcery CodeBench Lite for AMD Embedded ARM® solutions alongside AMD x86 Embedded solutions. The agreement strengthens AMD's technology partnership with Mentor Graphics, a leading maker of embedded software and open source tools, and creates a consistent development ecosystem across processor architectures.

"We are providing the embedded development community the opportunity for choice, as the first company to offer both ARM and x86 processor solutions for low-power and high-performance embedded compute designs," said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Embedded Solutions. "We are excited about our growing technology partnership with Mentor Graphics as this extends the scope of the ecosystem we have beyond our traditional markets. This is a step forward in bolstering the embedded community with open-source tools to help tailor and expand their development."

In 2014, AMD and Mentor Graphics agreed to create an embedded software ecosystem for developers. The Mentor Embedded Sourcery CodeBench product goes beyond just the compiler to provide developers with powerful open source, embedded C/C++ development tools to build, debug, analyze and optimize embedded software. These tools enable developers to build software in complex heterogeneous architectures based on upcoming AMD 64-bit ARM processors including the forthcoming AMD system-on-chip (SOC) (codenamed "Hierofalcon"), in addition to x86 processors including the AMD Embedded G-Series SOC (formerly codenamed "Steppe Eagle") and the 2nd Generation AMD Embedded R-Series APU (formerly codenamed "Bald Eagle").

"Mentor Graphics is excited to extend our technology partnership with AMD given their vision and product portfolio of innovative technologies for embedded solutions," said Scot Morrison, general manager of embedded runtime solutions, Mentor Graphics Embedded Software Division. "Together, we will enable developers to build robust and powerful applications in industries such as digital gaming, industrial control and automation, retail point-of-sale, networking equipment and storage."

I-007eBook Review: Thermal Management From a Fabricator’s Perspective

09/15/2020 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Thermal Management: A Fabricator’s Perspective, written by Anaya Vardya, founder and CEO of American Standard Circuits, is an important book for a number of reasons. The most important reason is right there in the title; it is from the fabricator’s perspective. Besides explaining all aspects of thermal management—from thermal vias and metal-core boards to mixed technology—this book also describes the various applications of thermal dielectrics, their properties, and their incorporation into the actual fabrication of PCBs.
