Electric car manufacturer Tesla Motors has standardized on the Mentor Graphics Capital toolset for 12-volt electrical systems design.

Paul Lomangino (Director of engineering applications, Tesla Motors): Model S has very advanced electrical systems with tremendous configuration complexity. It has been vital, during our ramp up to full production, that the logistical integration and effective sharing of data with our suppliers was seamless.

The Capital toolset is an electrical systems software environment spanning vehicle architecture, systems design and integration, service documentation creation, and wire harness manufacturing tools.
