Mentor Graphics Corporation
“We wanted to be part of the Shared EDA 'sparkle' from the outset. We are very pleased we took the step to help the special collective of SME’s find a competitive edge in an ultra-competitive world.
Mentor took the unusual step to find a contractual model to support multiple, independent companies share licenses of its EDA software. Share EDA’s structure offers a framework to efficiently administer a large volume of software packages more normally deployed by larger organizations. Shared EDA presented a viable platform for revenue growth for Mentor Graphics which was essential in establishing a commercial model.
The outcome is that Shared EDA member companies have access to a wider range of products and a higher volume of software licenses – especially important during bursts of peak usage. These resources give them best-in-class software to create innovative, optimal designs more effectively.
And of course the solution is commercially advantageous to the Shared EDA members.”
