Some releases include detail about the memory, disk space, and processor speed needed for reasonable performance. These configurations are a guideline. Performance may be impacted by the complexity of design and number of concurrent processes.

Dear HP-UX Platform Customer:
In order to be responsive to your changing needs, the Mentor Graphics Systems Designs Division (SDD) must continually re-evaluate its product strategy to focus on product development that maximizes the value we deliver. Occasionally this means restructuring our product direction toward specific platforms or operating systems and away from others.
As a result, Mentor Graphics SDD will discontinue development on HP-UX for our Expedition® and Board Station® flows, as of June 30, 2007. No new enhancement releases will be delivered on HP-UX after July 1, 2007.
We will continue to provide support for HP-UX based products under support contract in accordance with our Release Support Policy.
Because of this change, we strongly encourage you to move away from HP-UX to another supported operating system as soon as possible. Mentor's SDD products run on a variety of other UNIX, Linux, and Windows based computing platforms. Binaries for other platforms are included on all Mentor media, or may be downloaded from SupportNet at http://supportnet.mentor.com/. Details about our supported platforms may be found by logging in to SupportNet and navigating to: http://supportnet.mentor.com/systemreqs/.
Mentor remains committed to your success by providing you high quality releases and world-class support. If we can answer any questions, or provide any additional information, please don't hesitate to call.
