Tanner EDA Announces Strategic
Alliance with SoftMEMS, Companies Work with Trident Techlabs to Support A/MS and MEMS Design in India
Monrovia, California, November 9, 2009--Tanner EDA, a leading provider of analog, mixed-signal (A/MS) and MEMS electronic design automation (EDA) tools, announced today that it has formed a strategic alliance with SoftMEMS. The two companies are working together with Tanner EDAâ€™s distributor in India, Trident Techlabs Pvt. Ltd., to support customers in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Pune seeking proven solutions for A/MS and MEMS design.
"As electronic systems and semiconductor components get more and more complex, microelectronics has acquired a new applications dimension with the arrival of MEMS,â€ stated Praveen Kapoor, managing director with Trident Techlabs. â€œBecause of the growing emphasis in
â€œOur goal is to give our customers the best and easiest options for their MEMS designs,â€ remarked Dr. Mary Ann Maher, CEO, SoftMEMS. â€œBy joining forces with Tanner EDAâ€™s distributor in
Robin White, Tanner EDA International Sales Manager added, â€œThis relationship is indeed one of the best for our joint customers in India who use SoftMEMS along with our A/MS and MEMS software.â€
SoftMEMS CAD Design Environment is used for the development and test of MEMS products. The tools are open-platform software products that support leading electronic design automation (EDA) environments used for integrated circuit (IC) development. Their tools allow data sharing among system designers, IC designers, process engineers and MEMS experts, permitting early and consistent design checks among multidisciplinary teams and allowing designers to easily develop new MEMS designs, integrate existing designs (intellectual property) into systems, and couple them with electronics. SoftMEMS design tools include MEMS Xplorer (for UNIX and HP platforms) and MEMS Pro (for the PC platform).
