Digi-Key and Mentor Graphics announced new features and enhancements to the suite of Mentor Graphics’ professional-level electronic design automation (EDA) and computer-aided design (CAD) tools available at www.digikey.com. Digi-Key and Mentor Graphics launched their partnership to provide low-cost, professional-level design tools last year.
The suite EDA/CAD tools from Mentor Graphics has been expanded on the Digi-Key website to now include import from xDX Designer, PADS Layout for reference designs, import from third party schematic capture, and layout tools. Premium versions of the Designer Schematic and Designer Layout are available by Digi-Key for special 90-day discounted prices of $349 and $599. The dual product bundle is available for $849 and annual product subscriptions are available exclusively on the Digi-Key website. The special offer ends May 25, 2015.
Henry Potts, vice president and general manager of Mentor Graphics Systems Design Division, says the partnership with Digi-Key helps both companies better support the needs of design engineers.
“We’re committed to continuing to respond to customer demand by offering the right mix of capabilities and options in support of the product design process,” Potts said.
