Tanner EDA Provides Leap in Design Team Productivity with Release v16 of Widely-installed HiPer Silicon Full-flow Analog, Mixed-signal Design Suite

MONROVIA, California – March 5, 2013 – Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), has released version 16 of the company’s HiPer Silicon full-flow design suite, offering designers a complete analog and mixed-signal design flow from digital (HDL) and analog (Spice, Verilog-A) electrical design and simulation, through synthesis to physical layout and verification. HiPer Silicon v16 contains new features and functionality, including:

New capabilities for back-end (layout):

  • OpenAccess database support for PDK and EDA tool interoperability
  • Collaborative design / multi-user design control for enhanced team productivity
  • Improved file loading and rendering speeds
  • Improved performance of physical verification (HiPer Verify)
  • New capabilities for front-end (schematic capture, simulation, waveform viewing):
  • Integrated mixed-signal simulation (Verilog-AMS co-simulation)
  • Parametric plots, scatter plots and improved text control and graphics manipulation

HiPer Silicon v16 with OpenAccess provides users with unprecedented interoperability and advanced capability; offering an alternative tool flow for those seeking high productivity and price-performance. Whether designing IP blocks, discrete circuits or complete SoCs, OpenAccess designs can be easily shared between designers and engineering teams across other tool flows.  As Kenton Veeder of Senseeker Engineering, Inc. said, “I really like the OpenAccess capabilities. I also like the increased control over axis labels in [waveform editor] W-Edit.” Veteran user Mark Wadsworth, Tangent Technologies founder, commented, “Overall v16 is a winner – great job Tanner EDA!”

“The adoption of OpenAccess for L-Edit offers analog, mixed-signal and MEMS designers greater flexibility and opportunity to integrate our hallmark layout tool into large design environments,” said Greg Lebsack, Tanner EDA’s president. “Our commitment to interoperability and integration with ecosystem partners is part of our twenty-five year heritage as an EDA tool provider; it’s an essential part of our company DNA.”

Pricing and Availability

HiPer Silicon v16 is available now for the Windows operating system. A Linux version will be available later in Q2 2013.  For additional information, visit the Tanner EDA website at www.tannereda.com, contact Tanner EDA Sales by phone (626-471-9700), or email sales@tannereda.com .
