Fully User Programmable Design Capture Tool Tightly Integrated with Simulation; Provides Complete Design Flow from Design to Verification
Monrovia, California - March 8, 2006 - Tanner EDA, which provides cost-effective and easy-to-use tools for the design of mixed-signal and analog circuits, today announced its new S-Edit design environment for schematic capture. For the first time, users can get an integrated suite of affordable Tanner analog and mixed-signal design capture, simulation, layout, design rule checking and verification tools. S-Edit also supports legacy tools and data to preserve existing investments.
S-Edit is anticipated to reduce front-end design time, which typically is about 60 percent of the total design process. For example, S-Edit supports physical design from T-cells, which automatically generates the design and tracks its status. Once a design is completed, modifying it or creating next-generation devices is much faster than in previously available analog or mixedsignal design tools. To further simplify and shorten the design process, S-Edit also imports schematics from Cadence and ViewDraw tools.
For most analog and mixed-signal designers and their management, the key issue for tools is buying expensive ones versus spending time to build proprietary ones, said Mass Sivilotti, chief scientist, Tanner Research. S-Edit gives these designers a cost-effective, productive option to front-end design so they can use their existing design flow from Tanner EDA or with other tools.
Tight integration with Tanners T-Spice analog simulation tool and W-Edit waveform probing tool enables designers to move quickly through the design flow. Designers can take the designs created in S-Edit and use Tanners L-Edit and verification tools to finalize the process. A Windows-based user interface is common to all Tanner tools, meaning designers can get started in minutes and work easily across tools. User interfaces can be localized as well.
S-Edit provides schematic capture, netlist input and output with automatic conversion of Cadence® and ViewDraw® EDIF schematics, and integrated analog simulation. Users can run simulations and cross-probe from within S-Edit, making design more efficient and real-time. Other key features include:
