Arm China selects Mentor’s Questa Verification Solution to enhance power efficiency and speed development of MCU designs
Continuing to expand its functional verification footprint across high-growth markets and applications, Mentor, a Siemens business, today announced that Arm China has selected Mentor’s Questa™ Simulation with Power Aware verification solution to handle critical tasks in the development of next-generation, low-power microcontroller (MCU) cores.
Arm China selected the Mentor Questa solution after a thorough evaluation during which Questa demonstrated smooth bring-up and delivered a 100 percent pass rate against all target designs.
Engineered to reduce risks associated with validating complex FPGA and SoC designs, the Questa Advanced Simulator works together with Mentor’s Questa® Power Aware Simulation solution, helping customers to implement low power silicon designs by accurately modeling low power silicon behavior early in the design cycle. With Questa Power Aware Simulator, Arm China’s design teams can verify active power management functionality at the register-transfer level (RTL) stage, enabling the exploration of alternative approaches before implementation begins, to achieve the greatest power reduction at the least cost.
