Mentor Graphics Corporation announced its support for 64-bit Linux platforms by declaring full operational qualification for its analog/mixed-signal tool set. Mentor's entire line of Eldo and ADVance MS analog and mixed-signal products have been certified for operation on Opteron and EM64T processor architectures using the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 platform.

"Linux on X86-64 hardware is proving to be a great performance platform for our products," said Jue-Hsien Chern, vice president and general manager of Mentor's Deep Submicron Division. Mentor's AMS (Analog/Mixed-Signal) products and CICD (Custom IC Design) tools join Mentor's DFT tools (Design for Test), ModelSim(R) and the Calibre design-to-silicon platform to offer customers a wide choice in 64-bit computing. The move to 64-bit processing will become more crucial as engineers begin to design at 65nm and below and populate each chip with millions of gates.
