Abstract:
Tool Delivers True SPICE Accuracy and Superior Price/Performance for Block-Level Design

Summit Microelectronics Selects Berkeley Design Automation AFS Nano™

Santa Clara, CA | Posted on March 26th, 2009

Berkeley Design Automation, Inc., provider of the Analog FastSPICE™ unified circuit verification platform for advanced analog and RF integrated circuits (ICs), today announced that Summit Microelectronics, Inc., a world leader in programmable power management ICs, has selected the company's Analog FastSPICE Nano SPICE simulator (AFS Nano) for block-level characterization of its precision programmable power management ICs.

"At Summit we have been using Analog FastSPICE for over one year for transistor level simulation of our programmable, highly integrated precision power management ICs, and we consistently get up to 14x faster results than traditional SPICE simulators with identical waveforms," said Sridhar Kotikalapoodi, Vice President of Design at Summit Microelectronics. "Now with AFS Nano we get block-level simulation with true SPICE accuracy at a superior price/performance. This makes it compelling even compared to traditional SPICE tools."

Analog FastSPICE is the industry's only unified circuit verification platform for analog, mixed-signal, and RF design. Always delivering true SPICE accurate results, it provides 5x-10x higher performance than traditional SPICE, >1 million-element capacity, and the industry's only comprehensive noise analysis. The AFS Platform is a single executable that uses advanced algorithms and numerical analysis to rapidly solve the full-circuit matrix and original device equations without any shortcuts. AFS Platform tools include: AFS Nano SPICE simulator, Analog FastSPICE circuit simulator, Noise Analysis Option™ device noise analyzer, and RF FastSPICE™ multi-tone periodic analyzer.

"We are delighted that Summit Microelectronics has chosen AFS Nano for block-level characterization of their programmable power management ICs," said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. "Now, more than ever, mixed-signal design teams are required to get more complex designs done with greater cost-efficiency. Summit's selection of AFS Nano further validates the strong ROI the Analog FastSPICE Platform provides to leading-edge design teams of complex analog and mixed-signal devices."
