ASTC and Tanner EDA Ink Partnership for EDA Development Tools and Services

May 30, 2012

Delivering analog /mixed signal ASIC design services and solutions globally

MONROVIA, California – May 30, 2012–Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation for the design, layout, and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), and Australian Semiconductor Technology Corporation (ASTC), providing global consulting  services for semiconductors, software and systems, are collaborating to deliver analog /mixed signal ASIC design services and solutions globally. 

ASTC with its manufacturing partners will deliver A/MS IP and Custom ASIC turnkey design services with Tanner EDA tools and flows. ASTC has invested in IP enablement and infrastructure readiness with Tanner EDA tools and flows to deliver low cost A/MS design service solutions to its A/MS ASIC customers globally.

"Tanner EDA tools, flows and partnership enable the ASTC A/MS Design Services operation to offer new, lower cost, design solutions to a new range of global customers and ASIC segments. Previously cost-prohibitive A/MS ASIC product ideas have now become feasible and profitable propositions both for our customers and for ASTC A/MS Design Services," says Jay Yantchev, CEO of ASTC. 

“Tanner EDA is dedicated to providing our analog, custom, and mixed-signal design customers with the best possible price for performance, and excellent interoperability,” said John Zuk, vice president of marketing and business strategy for Tanner EDA. “Our collaboration with ASTC allows us to address a critical need in the analog and mixed-signal design space.”
