An introduction to Mentor Graphics’ Analog Mixed Signal Implementation tool Tanner

August 27, 2019

Register For This Seminar

Bengaluru, India – Aug 27, 2019 
9:30 AM – 5:00 PM IST


This workshop will feature experts from Mentor Graphics’ Tanner Product Division in the field of Custom and Analog IC design, covering the various capabilities in the Tanner AMS tool.  After an overview of the various tool capabilities, a hands on lab session will be organized to cover the tool features. This workshop will demonstrate how Mentor Graphics is meeting the needs of thousands of Analog Mixed Signal designers around the world with its Tanner suite of tools as a foundation for a Mentor based design flow. The Venue of the workshop will be Mentor Graphics Sales and Services Pvt Ltd at RMZ Eco World campus in Bangalore.

Being the tool of choice at 1000’s of customer places, the Tanner AMS product is tightly integrated with the rest of Mentor Eco System (AFS, Eldo, T-Spice, ModelSim/Questa on the simulator front, Calibre on the Physical Verification front and Nitro/Oasys on Digital Implementation front). In addition, the purpose built capability in Tanner for Curved Layout for MEMS design along with partnership with 3D modeler SoftMEMS provides an unique offering for MEMS-IC CoDesign. Lastly, the emerging field of Integrated Photonics requires layout capabilities that models and automates wave guides design which Tanner uniquely offers.

The work shop will comprise of three parts – First will be a general overview of the Analog Mixed Signal Land scape and applicability of Tanner in this space. Second will be a demo in which we will cover the Analog Mixed Signal capabilities in the Tanner tool. Finally participants will be provided a cheat sheet using which they will be guided to design smaller circuits in Tanner, simulate using T-Spice & ModelSim, perform Layout design and use our Calibre tool to physically verify the designs.

What You Will Learn

  • Applicability of Tanner in Analog Mixed Signal , MEMS and Photonics domains
  • Demo of Tanner Analog Mixed Signal Tools and Tanner Digital Implementer (TDI)
  • Hands on Workshop/Training of designing simple Analog circuits, Perform Circuit simulations, Layout and physically verify the correctness of the layout in our Calibre physical verification tool

Who Should Attend

  • Analog Design Engineer
  • Analog Design Manager
  • Digital Designer (of Big Analog-Small Digital blocks)
