Tanner EDA and Sound Design Technologies (SDT) have teamed together to develop process design kits (PDKs) for analog/mixed-signal (A/MS) designers using Tanner EDA’s HiPer Silicon software. Sound Design Technologies’ PDKs for Tanner Tools will be available this quarter.
The PDKs will gives Tanner EDA customers access to SDT’s SiPArray integrated passives technology and SDT customers access to Tanner EDA’s A/MS tools for a complete IC design solution. The process design kits give mutual customers an advanced design platform and powerful design capabilities to integrate passive components into stacked die assemblies to reduce board space. This will enable engineers to capitalize on advanced 3D packaging capabilities for breakthroughs in miniaturization and high performance solutions.
Sound Design Technologies’ IC design software combined with SDT’s integrated passives and chip-stacking technologies help A/MS designers simultaneously save space, improve quality, and reduce power requirements.
