MONROVIA, California – March 6, 2012 – Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), will preview HiPer Simulation A/MS and participate in a panel on analog productivity at the Design, Automation and Test in Europe conference ( DATE 2012). HiPer Simulation A/MS is a mixed-signal electronic design automation (EDA) tool suite that integrates Tanner EDA’s analog design, layout and physical verification tools with third-party logic synthesis and mixed-language VHDL and Verilog simulation. DATE 2012 takes place from 12-16 March in Dresden, Germany.
What: Panel entitled “Analog Productivity – Design and Test of Analog/Mixed Signal ASICs” chaired by Prof. Georges Gielen, Head of Department of Electrical Engineering (ESAT), Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium.
Abstract: With analog an ever-important aspect of emerging microelectronic applications, never has the need to improve productivity been more acute. Drawing from a range of industry experts, this panel will highlight and discuss the main areas affecting this field, namely analog/digital co-design, IP reuse, layout automation and design for test/yield.
- Jeff Miller, Director of Product Management, Tanner EDA, USA / System-level simulation
- Ciaran Whyte, CTO, IC Mask Design Limited, Ireland / Layout acceleration
- Dr. Holger Haberla, Non-Volatile Memory Design Manager, X-FAB Semiconductor Foundries AG, Germany / IP reuse
- Marc Hutner, DFT Architecture Engineering, Teradyne, USA/ Design for test, yield
When: Tuesday, 13 March from 13:15 – 14:15
Where: Exhibition Theatre
What: Preview of HiPer Simulation A/MS, an integrated solution that gives designers a complete analog design flow from schematic capture, circuit simulation, and waveform probing to physical layout and verification, logic synthesis and mixed VHDL and Verilog simulation. HiPer Simulation A/MS will combine industry-leading technologies into a highly productive design flow for mixed-signal design with industry-leading price-performance.
When: Tuesday, March 13th through Thursday, March 15th, 2012
Where: Tanner EDA Booth #37
