"Tanner 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," 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:
-- Faster EDIF import and export, SPICE export and design load and save
-- Ability to import and export Cadence-compatible EDIF files
-- Callback functions for properties
-- Print preview feature and optimized black-and-white printing performance
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, Tanner's physical layout editor, now offers:
-- Layer palette that displays layer names and icons
-- Integrated layer manager that allows users to define layers as locked or selectable
-- Capability to automatically convert layouts to T-cell code
-- DevGen feature, which creates T-cells for common devices (transistors, resistors, capacitors) with L-Edit Schematic Driven Layout (SDL)
-- Expanded support for small feature sizes that are more common in new designs
-- Ability to undo auto-placement of vias, contacts and guard rings
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.
