External Verification Interface (EVI) available with Tanner Tools v13.11
Tanner EDA Provides Customers with Seamless Integration to Mentor's Calibre Verification Suite

Monrovia, CA - September 18, 2008 - Tanner EDA, the world leader in PC-based analog and mixed-signal IC design tools, today announced the immediate availability of its External Verification Interface (EVI) product, available with Tanner Tools v13.11 release on Windows�.

EVI provides a seamless interface for Tanner customers using Mentor Calibre� tool suite to verify their designs. Used in conjunction with Calibre RVE, customers can review Calibre DRC errors, LVS results, and PEX parasitics in L-Edit and S-Edit environments. EVI supports all cross-probing and highlight functions available in Calibre RVE. EVI is also compatible with Calibre Interactive, which allows users to run DRC & LVS on L-Edit and S-Edit designs directly from within the Calibre Interactive environment.

Network interoperability
EVI was designed from the outset to work across the network; allowing Linux� based Calibre to connect directly with Tanner Tools on the Windows platform, providing a completely integrated verification flow.

�Layout verification is a very time consuming process of checking, debugging and re-checking, requiring numerous iterations,� said Dr. Massimo Sivilotti, Chief Scientist at Tanner EDA. �As design complexities increase, the verification process becomes more critical, and significantly impacts the time to market.�

Tanner EVI is available now as an option with Tanner Tools v13.11 on the Windows platform. For pricing and licensing information, contact Tanner EDA at sales@tanner.com or call 1-877-325-2223 (inside U.S.) or 1-626-471-9701 (outside U.S.)
