Tanner EDA at DAC 2012: New Products and Solutions for Analog Designers, Mixed-signal Designers, and MEMS Designers
MONROVIA, California – May 30, 2012 – Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs) and MEMS devices,
The new Tanner Analog FastSPICE solution, an add-on to Tanner EDA’s front end and full flow analog/mixed-signal design suites, brings Berkeley Design Automations Analog FastSPICE platform to Tanner EDA customers, delivering foundry-certified nanometer SPICE accuracy at speeds 5x-10x faster than any other simulator on a single core and an additional 2x-4x performance uptick with multithreading. The HiPer Simulation A/MS solution, which offers T-Spice analog design capture and simulation together with Aldec’s Riviera-PRO™ mixed language digital simulator, allows both analog and digital designers to seamlessly resolve A/MS verification problems from one cohesive, integrated platform.
Live demonstrations and presentations at the Tanner EDA booth will include:
