Inventra, the IP Division of Mentor Graphics, provides an expansive array of soft cores for a broad range of electronic consumer, computing, multimedia, and communications applications.
Soft cores are written in Verilog and VHDL HDL, which can be synthesized into gate-level design representations that can be mapped to a number of different processes and foundries thus giving designers a broad choice of suppliers.
All of these pre-defined, pre-verified soft cores are delivered via a productivity-enhancing package consisting of documentation, synthesizable models, synthesis scripts and a testbench.
