Monrovia, California - January 8, 2007 â Tanner EDA, which provides cost-effective, easy-to-use, WindowsÂ®-based tools for analog and mixed-signal circuit design, today announced the immediate availability of Tanner Tools 12.2, the latest version of its integrated tool suite for schematic capture, simulation, physical layout and verification.
âTanner Tools continues to add value and efficiency for analog and mixed-signal designers. Our latest performance enhancements and new features provide for a more tightly integrated and highly functional tools set that continues to evolve to meet the needs of our customers,â noted Dr. Massimo Sivilotti, chief scientist, Tanner EDA.
Tanner Tools 12.2 New Features and Speed Enhancements
Tanner Tools 12.2 includes new features and updates for S-Edit, T-Spice, L-Edit and HiPer Verify. S-Edit provides schematic capture, which offers netlist input and output and tight integration with analog simulation, as well as the ability to perform Schematic Driven Layout. The latest S-Edit enhancements include:
T-Spice circuit simulation, which currently includes HSPICE/PSpice compatibility and support for the latest industry models, now features faster performance as well as improved operating point convergence using pseudo-transient analysis and new homotopies.
L-Edit, Tannerâs physical layout editor, now offers:
HiPer Verify, which offers foundry-compatible, hierarchical design rule checking, now saves valuable design time by running checks from 2 to 10 times faster.
New Program Smoothes Transition to Tanner
Tanner also announced that it will extend its SmoothSwitch offer to include the new Tanner Tools 12.2. SmoothSwitch offers significant discounts and a support program to help users of ICED tools make the transition to Tanner EDA.
