Tanner EDA and Aldec teamed together on HiPer Simulation A/MS, which is an integrated co-simulation solution for analog and mixed-signal (A/MS) design. HiPer Simulation A/MS includes Tanner EDA’s T-Spice analog design capture and simulation tool, and Aldec’s Riviera-PRO mixed language digital simulator. The integrated solution helps both analog and digital designers to seamlessly resolve A/MS verification problems from one cohesive, integrated platform. HiPer Simulation A/MS is available on both Windows and Linux.
Magma Design Automation rolled out a new version of their Titan Analog/Mixed-Signal (Titan AMS) Design Platform. Titan AMS Design Platform version 2011.11 features updated AMS reference flows, more efficient legacy data format support, parallel optimization, improved process modeling, new advanced FlexCells, and support of higher frequency transistor characteristics for RF design. Version 2011.11 of Titan AMS Design Platform is available now.
Magma Design Automation announced their Silicon One initiative. Silicon One features differentiated solutions and technologies for improving time to market, product differentiation, cost, power and performance. The goal of the initiative is to make silicon profitable for chip makers. The Silicon One initiative currently focuses on five types of devices: ASIC/ASSP, Analog/Mixed-Signal, Memory, Processing Cores, and System-on-Chip.
