Mentor Rolls Out Capital Harness Systems 2004.1 for Electrical Design

8/4/2004 - Mentor Graphics Corporation (Nasdaq: MENT) announced availability of the Capital Harness SystemsTM product suite release 2004.1. The Capital Harness Systems (CHS) product suite is a comprehensive data-centric, end-to-end software toolset for the design, analysis, engineering and production of large scale electrical interconnect systems. Users can select from a wide range of integrated point tools within CHS. These tools all act on a single data repository, thus eliminating data re-entry and greatly simplifying the complex change management issues commonly encountered.

The 2004.1 release of the CHS product suite delivers significantly enhanced capabilities in several areas. Examples include:

"The CHS product suite is updated on a regular six-month cycle," said Nick Smith, product marketing director, Integrated Electrical Systems Division, Mentor Graphics. "The 2004.1 release adds many capabilities to this leading edge toolset. It delivers against our vision of a much more efficient, repeatable design-to-manufacture process. We are trying to release engineers from time-consuming and error-prone tasks such as documentation and checking. This leaves the engineers free to undertake the truly value-add design tasks, which is where a company's competitive advantage often lies."
