Tanner's T-Spice supports PSP modelSAN FRANCISCO Tanner EDA said the newest version of its T-Spice Pro Circuit Simulator program for analog and mixed-signal IC design supports the Penn State Philips (PSP) model, the new industry standard CMOS transistor model selected by the Compact Model Council in December to replace BSIM3 and BSIM4.
“Tanner’s rapid support of the PSP model demonstrates our ongoing commitment to adopting the latest technologies and enabling our customers to adopt leading-edge industry standards,” noted John Tanner, Tanner president and CEO, in a statement.
Based on a graphical user interface that runs on Windows-based systems, TSpice Pro’s table-based and direct modeling enables fast simulation of complex circuits, Tanner (Pasadena, Calif.) said. Key features include device state plotting, real-time waveform viewing and analysis and command tools for simpler SPICE syntax creation, the company said. T-Spice Pro also will continue to support other industry standard models including MOSFET and others and now supports the latest BSIM3.3 and BSIM4.5 releases, the company said.
Tanner’s S-Edit front-end design tools are included in T-Spice Pro for schematic entry; waveform and operating point cross-probing; portable data files; support for industry file outputs; component rotation, inversion and reflection; and drag-and-drop device placement, Tanner said.
