Mentor Embedded Hardware Enablement Program

Open Software Ecosystem

Hardware companies and their customers can now work within an efficient and open software ecosystem to meet the growing demands from OEMs/ODMs.  As embedded systems continue to increase in complexity, OEMs are placing ever-growing demands on their hardware vendors to deliver better software development tools and considerably more runtime content. Due to the large volume of sophisticated open source platform software expected by OEMs, hardware vendors can increase design wins and accelerate products to market by creating an efficient ecosystem of embedded tools, middleware, operating systems (including RTOS, Android™, and  Linux®), and services.

Mentor Embedded Hardware Enablement Program

The Hardware Enablement Program offers assistance in all phases of software development delivering a fully supported ecosystem.
