On-Demand Training Available

The Microelectronics Support Centre at STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is pleased to announce a pilot to make available access to Mentor On-Demand Training Libraries for a subset of the tools provided through Europractice.

These libraries are educational resources based upon Mentor tools. They contain video lectures, lab exercises, and knowledge checking tests, at multiple stages of various tool chain flows.

The available labs are simple to set up and use as they're hosted in the cloud, connecting the user through to virtual machines with all of the required tools installed already.

This scheme is initially only being rolled out for Europractice members with existing Europractice/Mentor End-User License agreements on a first come first served basis. Mentor will be able to monitor usage and at the end of the pilot STFC Europractice will ask for feedback to help persuade Mentor to expand the offering and make it available to the entire Europractice membership.

Currently the training libraries that will be made available are associated with Calibre, Functional Verification, Catapult, Xpedition, HyperLynx and Tanner EDA (L-Edit).
