Exhibitor Forums – Monday, June 14, 2010

Location: Exhibit Hall B - Booth #1562 

10:15-10:50am - Tanner EDA/IC Mask Design Ltd.: High Performance Device & Structure Generation for A/MS Design

Attempts to automate the analog layout process have had limited success. Forgoing full automation, Tanner EDA and IC Mask Design focus on acceleration and semi-automation. We will demonstrate that -- without any change to design flow, using only manufacturing design rules -- HiPer DevGen generates high quality design primitives, matched to address common processing artifacts. Results are equal to hand design. Cycle time is dramatically reduced. Users retain control for tuning the design to address specific matching, parasitic and performance requirements.

Speaker: Ciaran Whyte – IC Mask Design Ltd., Limerick, Ireland 

10:55-11:30am - Tanner EDA: Challenges and Opportunities Related to PDKs for Analog Design

Process Design Kits (PDKs) are considered an essential enabler to accelerating Analog & Mixed Signal design cycles. Maintaining the integrity of electrical and physical model data across key constituents (foundries, EDA vendors, and designers) requires extensive coordination and ongoing investment.  Recent initiatives within the industry to define PDK standards are aimed at addressing the proliferation of unique PDK support requirements. This panel discussion will explore the challenges and opportunities related to PDKs with a focus on Analog Design.

Speaker: Massimo Sivilotti – Tanner EDA, Monrovia, CA

User Forum – Thursday, June 17, 2010

Location: 202A 

8:30-11:00am - Driving Analog Innovation

Current and prospective Tanner EDA users are invited to join Greg Lebsack (President) and Mass Sivilotti (CTO) as they share perspectives on the EDA industry, Tanner's business strategy and product roadmap.
The meeting will also include presentations from current users who will share their experience creating Analog ICs and MEMS with Tanner tools. Learn how Tanner's full-flow product suite is enabling innovations ranging from high-speed I/O devices at deep nanoscale to world-leading image sensors designed for diverse industry applications.

A light breakfast will be served and each registered attendee will receive a chance to win a new Apple iPad. Don't miss this fun, informative and interesting session!
