Mentor Graphics Awards In-Circuit Design

Top 2005 Worldwide Distributor Marketing                      


Brisbane, Australia, March 1, 2006 – In-Circuit Design Pty Ltd, the Mentor Graphics PADS distributor in Australia, today announced that Barry Olney, Managing Director, was presented with two awards by Mentor Graphics, Board Systems Division at the annual Sales Kick-off meeting this year in Macau, China. 

Mr. Jim Martens, Manager, Product Marketing, PADS Solutions Group, Mentor Graphics Corporation presented Barry Olney with the two awards:

  • Top 2005 Asian Distributor Marketing

  • Top 2005 Worldwide Distributor Marketing


Mr. Olney said “This is really a sign of the acceptance of the new PADS product line and the exceptional growth in business in Australia over the past year”.


In early 2004, the PADS and HyperLynx products were virtually  unknown in Australia as they had never been promoted to any great extent. In-Circuit Design took over the distributorship, in the territory in May 2004, and both product awareness and sales have improved dramatically since. “In 2005 we experienced a 138% growth in business,” said Barry Olney.


As the industry standard, Mentor Graphics PADS remains the No.1 PCB design system in the world. It provides everything needed to complete the most complex designs simply and quickly in a flexible design environment. 

“These awards are a testament to In-Circuit Design’s knowledge of the EDA marketplace, and specifically, the Australian marketplace,” said Mr. Martens.
