Mentor Graphics Corp. has acquired LogicVision Inc.
LogicVision provides integrated test and yield learning solutions that enable its customer to achieve very high quality metrics, accelerate silicon bring-up, reduce overall cost of test and facilitate yield learning. The company's ET Create™ products allow designers to embed test and characterization IP directly into a semiconductor device. These embedded test IP operate as "eyes in the die," observing and testing the device. LogicVision's Silicon Insight™ software interfaces to popular test-platforms or a customer's performance board and interacts with the embedded test IP to enable performance characterization and identify failure mechanisms. LogicVision's Yield Insight™ software accumulates and analyzes chip tester data in order to automatically identify systemic yield limiting issues.
