What is the Mentor Graphics FPGA Advantage software, and does Altera support it?


The Mentor Graphics® FPGA Advantage software is a hardware description language (HDL) design environment with a single user interface for all steps in the design process. The tool integrates the HDL Designer Series for design creation and management, the ModelSim tool for simulation, and the Precision Synthesis tool for synthesis. More information can be found on the Mentor Graphics web site at http://www.mentor.com.

Altera does not officially support the FPGA Advantage design flow at this time. Therefore, for problems or questions regarding this software package, contact Mentor Graphics directly. For issues regarding the design flow for Altera® devices, submit an enhancement request detailing any problems you're having through Altera's mySupport on-line technical support system. Altera will work with Mentor Graphics to try to resolve your problem.

Altera does officially support the Precision and ModelSim software tools. Altera can help customers with any problems or questions regarding the Altera design flow using any supported version of these tools.
