Tanner EDA Support ICED Users with SmoothSwitch Windows EDA Tools

Tanner EDA, which provides cost-effective, easy-to-use tools for analog and mixed-signal circuit design, has created a special offer, SmoothSwitch, for users of IC Editors’ products and similar tools that run in the Windows(R) environment. The Windows-based Tanner Tools includes design capture, simulation, layout, design rule checking and verification.

“Selecting a new tools suite can be time-consuming. Tanner Tools is providing users of soon-to-be phased out tools suites with a cost-effective way to maintain their files and knowledge of Windows-based tools, while transitioning to a tool suite that has full functionality and a widely established user base,” said John Tanner, president and CEO, Tanner EDA.

For these users, Tanner EDA is offering Tanner tool products at a substantial discount, with a unique, extensive support and training package that includes a dedicated applications engineer for each customer. Tanner has also created a free evaluation guide to help users optimize the transition of their projects to Tanner Tools.

Tanner Tools integrated suite includes:

  • S-Edit for schematic capture, which offers netlist input and output and tight integration with analog simulation. Plus the opportunity to add Schematic Driven Layout, which integrates S-Edit with L-Edit.
  • T-Spice for circuit simulation, which offers HSPICE/PSpice compatibility and support for the latest industry models.
  • L-Edit for physical layout, which offers object snapping and Boolean operations.
  • HiPer Verify, which offers foundry-compatible, hierarchical design rule checking.

For more information and a copy of the selection guide, contact Tanner at +1-626-471-9701 or sales@tanner.com. This offer will be good until December 31, 2006. Customers should mention the SmoothSwitch offer when calling or emailing.

Tanner also announced that it is expanding its sales and support presence in Asia. The company has opened an office in Singapore, complementing its offices in Japan and Taiwan. The new location will provide support and marketing of the Tanner Tools products for customers in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim.

“The Singapore office demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing strong customer support to our customers around the globe,” noted Daniel Hamon, general manager, Tanner EDA. “This is an important and growing region for Tanner Tools and its customers.”
