From the Founder and CEO:
Then and Now
Looking back at an early issue of a Tanner Research newsletter, “Tanner Tools News” from the mid-1990s, the theme at that time was growth, just as it is again now for Tanner EDA. At that time we were averaging 66% revenue growth per year (enjoying rapid growth as a small start-up). Fast-forward to current day - where we just closed our fiscal year 2010 as a record for the company, with third-quarter revenue being the best in our history and March 2010 representing our strongest month ever!
From the President:
State of Analog
Design complexity in the IC product development process is ever- increasing with shrinking process geometries. Meanwhile, pressures to speed up cycle times and shorten overall time to market are mounting. The greatest value-add a tool vendor can offer to customers is to enable enhanced productivity, reliability, and speed the path to profitability. Tanner EDA has a 22-year history of providing this to our customers, who today include 33,000 seats in 67 countries.
Analog Insights: Layout is Becoming a Bottleneck
Despite many efforts to automate analog design and layout, these tasks remain primarily a full custom process with the result that analog is occupying a larger and larger portion of the total design cycle time.
