Complete RTL to GDSII Flow for “Analog on Top” Designs
June 29, 2020 @ 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Mentor will highlight our Tanner Digital Implementer (TDI) tool, powered by the Oasys Digital Synthesis and Nitro Place and Route engines, and its integration into L-Edit, Tanner’s physical layout tool, to address the physical implementation of the digital needs of “Analog on Top” designs. More and more analog designs are becoming digitally-assisted resulting in more digital content to enhance analog capabilities, such as automated calibration and more programmability. TDI integration into L-Edit is the ideal cost-effective, easy-to-use digital synthesis and place and route solution. It addresses performance, capacity, time-to-market, power, and variability challenges. The tool is optimized for analog specialty process technology nodes at 22 nm and above to design an analog IC with a small amount of digital control or a more complex mixed-signal ASIC. The tool facilitates bringing together complex digital circuits with high performance analog interfaces to provide a complete flow.
What You Will Learn
- How to synthesize and then place and route a digital block on a typical mixed signal design using the Tanner Digital Implementer product.
- How to operate the Tanner Digital Implementer GUI from within the Tanner L-Edit mixed signal IC physical design environment
- Key digital standard cell library file formats and how they’re used in the design flow.
- The basics of the Nitro Reference Flow for customization and advanced functionality.
