MONROVIA, California – January 26, 2011 -- At DesignCon 2012, Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), will participate in a panel on analog and mixed-signal design moderated by Brian Bailey at 3:45pm on Tuesday, January 31st.
What: Panel entitled “ Is It Time for an Analog Comeback?” Abstract:
It seems as if analog was almost a thing of the past. Designs converted analog signals into digital as quickly as they could, leaving only small amounts of analog off-chip. But today that analog circuitry has come on-chip. Radios and high-speed communications are now fully integrated; power-saving schemes are adding new types of analog content; signal integrity and high-speed issues often require analog analysis; and these are demanding better tools and flows to handle the mixed-signal aspects of a design. In addition, there are some parts of a design that operate at speeds greater than digital is capable of. With better tools, will the percentage of the chip consumed by analog increase again? Will the shrinking geometries cause even greater difficulties for analog?
