Yes, you seem to be right in suggesting that. But that offering by Mentor is a miniscule portion of their Embedded solutions business wherein it offers a complete RTOS platform - Nucleus, mainly for mobile applications. This overlap amy not be very significant for a strategic alliance of any sort between two companies.
Thanks Eda and Consulti. I appreciate the info. I don't hold MENT but was considering HAUP at $2 or lower. They make a somewhat useful solution for Apple i-phone and i-pad. Very speculative at this point for me.
