Tanner EDA at DAC 2013: 25 Years of Driving Innovation for Analog and Mixed-Signal Designers


Building on the company's 25-year heritage of providing industry-leading price-performance and interoperability, Tanner EDA and its ecosystem of partners has added greater flexibility to Tanner EDA solutions. HiPer Silicon v16, Tanner EDA's full-flow design suite with OpenAccess, provides users with unprecedented PDK and EDA tool interoperability and enhanced capabilities for both front-end and back-end design.Integration with Aldec's Riviera-PRO™ mixed language digital simulator, Berkeley Design Automation's Analog FastSPICE Platform, and Incentia's DesignCraft ™ and TimeCraft™ digital design tools provides users with a wider choice of functionality to focus on their specific design flows. HiPer Silicon will be demonstrated on the DAC floor in the ARM Connected Community pavilion, booth #921, and in Tanner EDA's booth, #2442.
