ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 26, 2017 — Electronics software developer Mentor Graphics Corp., a Siemens company, has joined the American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics (AIM Photonics), a public-private partnership to advance the nation’s photonics manufacturing capabilities.

Mentor brings its expertise in electronic photonics design automation, a critical design technology enabler for AIM Photonics’ Process Design Kit (PDK) and Multi Project Wafer (MPW). Mentor’s software and hardware design solutions enable companies to develop better electronic products faster and more cost-effectively. These solutions will help engineers in AIM Photonics and member companies overcome design challenges in the increasingly complex world of board and chip design, especially as it relates to integrated silicon photonics.

“Their expertise in functional verification, design for test and PCB design are a plus for our new test, assembly and packaging facility now under construction,” said Michael Liehr, CEO of AIM Photonics.

“Mentor’s goal in joining AIM is to unify the electronic and photonic design processes so that custom integrated circuit designers can be successful with their photonic integrated circuit designs,” said Robert Hum, vice president of the deep sub micron division at Mentor.

AIM Photonics is one of nine Manufacturing Innovation Institutes, an industry-driven public-private partnership that focuses the nation’s capabilities and expertise to capture critical global manufacturing leadership in photonics.

Mentor is a developer of hardware and software design solutions for the electronic, semiconductor and systems companies.
