According to a company press release, this acquisition will help expand and strengthen Mentor’s chip-package-board simulation portfolio. Nimbic provides four main electromagnetic simulation solutions — nWave, a full-wave electromagnetic solver; nApex, a 3D electro-magento-quasi-static extractor; nVolt, a power integrity solution; and nCloud, a cloud platform for electronic design automation.
“Nimbic’s world-class 3D electromagnetic simulation solutions for signal integrity, power integrity, and EMI (electromagnetic interference) analysis are used by numerous leaders in the electronics industry to address their enterprise-wide challenges for chip-package-board design,” said Raul Camposano, CEO, Nimbic Inc. “Nimbic’s recognized solutions enable the industry to cope with increasingly higher-end complexity. We see joining Mentor Graphics as a natural fit with its own leadership in PCB and package systems design, global footprint, and extensive network of enterprise customers. We view this transaction as very positive for our customers, our employees, and the industry as a whole.”
