"We were gratified by the Court's decision," said Tom Evans, corporate intellectual property counsel for Mentor Graphics. "The claims of the '376 patent that Synopsys was found to infringe were approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office when the patent issued, and again after Synopsys petitioned the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to review those claims. This decision affirms the Patent Office's conclusions that the '376 patent covers innovative emulation technology, and validates Mentor's ongoing vigorous protection of this technology."
