Tanner EDA Announces All-New Digital Place and Route Tool in Release v16.1 of HiPer Silicon Design Suite

HiPer P&R(tm). HiPer P&R is optimized for the needs of big-Analog/little-Digital mixed signal designs on typical analog process nodes.

MONROVIA, California – April 16, 2014 – Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation and leader for design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal (A/MS) integrated circuits (ICs) and (ASICs), has released version 16.1 of the company’s HiPer Silicon™ design suite, including an all-new digital place and route tool, HiPer P&R™. HiPer P&R is optimized for the needs of big-Analog/little-Digital mixed signal designs on typical analog process nodes. The new addition HiPer P&R completes Tanner EDA’s end-to-end flow for analog/mixed signal designs.

HiPer P&R features:

• Cost-effective, integrated digital place and route tool for mixed-signal designs

• Clock tree synthesis

• SDF timing extraction.

• Support for standard digital formats, including LEF/DEF, Liberty, Verilog, and SDF

“Tanner EDA users that are developing mixed-signal ICs, or doing large chip assembly projects, can now use HiPer P&R to cost-effectively implement their designs in-house. With no hard limits on gate count, design size or interconnect layers, HiPer P&R is integrated into the L-Edit SDL flow, providing tremendous flexibility and user control at every step of the process,” said Massimo Sivilotti, Tanner EDA’s CTO and head of engineering. “By using industry standard input and output formats, HiPer P&R leverages foundry-provided PDKs, and can be easily integrated into existing toolflows.”
