Tanner EDA Sponsors MEMS Partner Event in Israel
Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), and Israeli distributor New ARTech Technologies will hold a day-long conference on micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) in Israel on 30 October 2012. This conference will feature presentations by Tanner EDA customers and partners along with briefs on Tanner EDA and SoftMEMS tools. SoftMEMS provides the CAD design environment used for the development and test of MEMS products.

More MEMS designs are created with Tanner EDA tools than with any other EDA tools. Six Tanner EDA customers will give presentations at the conference and technical sessions will be held on Tanner EDA MEMS design tools and SoftMEMS tools. Presenting companies include Israel MEMS House (IMH), Maradin, Rafael, and TowerJazz along with Technion (Israel Institute of Technology) and Tel Aviv University.

About SoftMEMS
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).
