Tanner EDA Releases Linux Version of Full-flow Analog IC Design Suite

Tanner EDA's HiPer Silicon full-flow analog design suite is now available in both Linux and Windows. Complete functionality in either platform ranges from schematic capture, circuit simulation, and waveform probing to physical layout and verification

MONROVIA, California – September 8, 2010 – Tanner EDA, the driver for innovation in the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), has released a Linux version of the company’s HiPer Silicon full-flow design suite, giving designers a complete analog design flow from schematic capture, circuit simulation, and waveform probing to physical layout and verification. Merging the functionality of the Windows and Linux product lines, HiPer Silicon v15.02 includes all the functionality of the recently-introduced HiPer Silicon v15 while allowing customers on either platform to choose – and change as desired – between the Windows and the Linux platforms.

New features and functionality in HiPer Silicon v15.02 include:

• A complete redesign of the waveform editor product (W-Edit), which provides designers with a signal analysis platform rather than simple layout views.

• The addition of a new database for storage and management of simulation data.

• Seamless integration with optional add-in HiPer DevGen, the newest addition to Tanner’s tool portfolio that offers breakthrough device and structure generation for layout productivity .

“With Tanner EDA now supporting Linux, we have been able to integrate their tools quickly and effectively into our wider Linux tool flow. L-Edit had proved an excellent addition to our flow, as it is easy to use, very productive and well supported by Tanner,” said Professor Boni, CTO of Italina IC design house Silis S.r.l.

“HiPer Silicon for Linux is another example of our continued commitment to licensing flexibility and tool interoperability,” offered Tanner EDA’s product manager, Jeff Miller. “Realizing that many of our users maintain heterogeneous or hybrid computing environments, we continue to make our tool suite as robust as possible.”


HiPer Silicon v15.02 and the HiPer DevGen add-on are available now for the Linux operating system. For additional information, please contact Tanner EDA Sales by phone 626-471-9700, or email sales@tannereda.com.
