8/12/2004 - Accelerated Technology(r), the Embedded Systems Division of Mentor Graphics Corporation (Nasdaq: MENT), announced that it has joined the Eclipse Foundation, a software tool vendors consortium formed to foster the expansion of a unified development environment and wide product integration.
