Venice, Florida — Mentor Graphics Corporation announced completion of the acquisition of the C synthesis assets of Agility Design Solutions Inc. These tools were formerly owned and marketed by Celoxica Holdings. Mentor Graphics intends to offer continued sales and support to existing customers, as well as an upgrade path to Catapult C Synthesis, the market-leading high level synthesis tool.
The electronic system level (ESL) products associated with this acquisition are the Handel C-based algorithm synthesis flow found in the DK Design Suite, PixelStreams and the RC Series of FPGA development and prototyping boards. Key employees will join Mentor to ensure continued product support.
"Mentor understands ESL very well and is offering our customers continued support and a way forward with a technology that has proven itself to be a time-to-market saver," said Dave Burow, Agility's CEO. "By working with Mentor Graphics, we can safeguard the trust that our customers put in us."
