Analogue, mixed-signal, and RF designers have increasing requirements for circuit simulation performance and capacity with nanometer SPICE accuracy. The Berkeley Design Automation Analog FastSPICE (AFS) Platform is among the fastest nanometer circuit verification platforms for analogue, RF, mixed-signal, and custom digital circuits. With Tanner Analog FastSPICE, Tanner EDA customers will be able to access foundry-certified nanometer SPICE accuracy 5x-10x faster than any other simulator on a single core and an additional 2x-4x performance uptick with multithreading. Tanner EDA users will be able to verify challenging analogue/ RF circuits even as they have access to the latest foundry nanometer CMOS technology. For circuit characterization, the T-AFS Platform includes the industry’s only comprehensive silicon-accurate device noise analysis and delivers near-linear performance scaling with the number of cores.
“The availability of Analog FastSPICE as an add-on to Tanner EDA”s analogue and mixed-signal design tools brings great benefit to Tanner EDA’s customers,” said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. “Designer can realise the benefits of Tanner EDA”s full-flow analogue design suite that is now bolstered by Analog FastSPICE, allowing verification of very complex analogue/ RF circuits with nanometer SPICE-accurate results.”
Commenting Greg Lebsack, Tanner EDA’s president said,“Offering Analog FastSPICE as a complement to our T-SPICE simulator enables our customers to tackle complex analogue/ RF circuit verification and delivers on our continued commitment to offer the widest possible choice of leading-edge technology.”
