Interoperability Comes to EDA Tools

The Options Just Got Better

"Our engineers need to move between Tanner and Mentor Graphics EDA tool sets several times in the design flow. We wish we could operate more efficiently yet keep our tool costs down."

It's common for IC designers to deal with a heterogeneous flow, moving among tools for compelling business reasons. However, the back-and-forth movement of files in a heterogeneous flow is inefficient and potentially risky. As designers work around binary incompatibilities and move text files from one system to another, this flow broadens the potential for error and introduces several problems.

"We're concerned about the integrity of the data. How do we connect these tool sets to maintain a transparent, smooth flow?"

To help replace a heterogeneous flow with interoperability among EDA tools, Tanner introduces its External Verification Interface (EVI) for Tanner Tools that work with Calibre® RVE and Calibre Interactive.

Users of Tanner's S-Edit (Schematic Capture) and L-Edit (Physical Layout) can now enjoy integration with verification tools from Mentor Graphics; users of Mentor tools can now take advantage of Tanner's lower-cost, alternative EDA tools for physical layout and schematic capture. Tanner's L-Edit and S-Edit display results (DRC, LVS and parasitics) from Calibre natively and perform layout-to-schematic cross-probing without leaving L-Edit and S-Edit.
